So, I wasn’t going to do any special Halloween manicures. To be totally honest – I don’t know, Halloween is cool, I guess, I just haven’t done anything for Halloween in years! But my loyal friends on Facebook, when asked about Halloween manis, replied with a resounding YES.
The true story here is that I tried over and over again to paint a pumpkin. Specifically, the Great Pumpkin from Charlie Brown. But it just would. not. pumpkify. So, here we are with something a little subtler.
The dark blue gradient is supposed to be the night sky. I freehanded a spiderweb on mah jazz finger. The gradient is nice, I think – I used 4 polishes on a sponge: China Glaze Liquid Leather, Essie Midnight Cami, Barielle Sky’s the Limit, and Sation Board Girl Blue. I want to try a gradient with 4 really different colors. These were all in the same color family, so they blended very nicely.
Eh. Not my best work ever. Maybe too subtle for Halloween. I feel like Halloween is supposed to be all bright colors and sexy kittens and whatever. And this is not that!
Cleanup was hard, again – I have got to do a gradient with dark tips instead of the other way around! Also, I seem to have a little booboo on my web finger. Owwie!
