YIPPEE!! First of all, I want to apologize for not posting for a bit - I've has so much stuff to do for uni and I've missed blogging a lot! I've not had the time to write up posts, but I have been taking pics whenever I've done my nails so they will be coming up in the hopefully not too distant future, however I still have a lot of work to do right now.
Now, I've been planning on doing one big post for Halloween seeing as I didn't have time for anything more so here you go!
The first design here was inspired by a picture I saw on the internet and I thought I'd create it myself as I love gradients. :) I really don't have the mental capacity to go through all the polishes I used as I'm now off sick with the cold and my head is filled with goo.
However if you want to know a particular colour, just ask and I'll go look. :)
I didn't have a 'witch' stamper so I drew it freehand, and the witches house was in my stamping kit but when I used it, it didn't show up much so I basically drew that on too. I blended Avon Lemon Sugar and some orange Essie colour to get the effect of the moon like in the picture.
This is another one I did just before the one above, but pretty much just for the blog haha. I used an orange Essie one for the base of most of them and used this to paint on the pumpkin on the middle finger, Sally Hansen's Black Out on the middle finger base and for stamping the black pumpkin and bats. I also used an orange glitter with a darkish base. It's called Pumpkin Spice by Sally Hansen (quite fitting I think! I bought it ages ago just for Halloween haha).
Also on the ring finger I have a layer of black Barry M Croc Effects - I was originally going to get the Limited Edition Web Effects one but after everyone said it was horrible, I went for this one and thought I could do the opposite haha.
And finally, I thought I'd share with you what I carved into my pumpkin this year. :D FLOUNDER! Makes me so happy! Haha. I did it all freehand and it took me about 3 hours - would have been a lot easier if I just used a template but I like giving myself a lot of work...
