BLOGOWEEN DAY #6: Random Halloween Designs

Pin It
Here's Day 6 of Blogoween! I did something a little simpler this time since the last 3 were a little bit more time consuming :P Don't forget to check the other manis I've done for this Blogoween series - here :]

I did a few various designs, they're simple but fun! These can be executed using a detailing brush and a dotting tool :] I used Sinful Colors Citrine as the base (one of my favorite oranges) and Black on Black for the designs.  For some reason the black bled under the orange on my thumb nail. NO idea why that happened since that didn't happen to the other nails, I tried to cover it up but it wasn't happening - WHATEVER! You get the point.

Don't forget to check out the past couple looks I've done for Blogoween - here. Hope you enjoyed this design, I thought it was fun :] I think it would look cool over various Halloweenie colors or a gradient!

Ciao!

BLOGOWEEN DAY #4: Fancy Severed Body Parts

It's day numero 4 of Blogoween, ya'll! Ran with this idea on a whim and I'm happy with how it came out! Don't forget to check the other manis I've done for this Blogoween - here :]

So today's mani features a black base adorned with freshly spooned out colorful eyeballs from different creatures. In addition, there were some just manicured fingers that happened to get sliced off as well. Not sure why, but they seemed appropriate for this mani bahahahah! I thought this would be a fun take on something usually pretty gory :P I used mostly all Zoya polishes besides the black and white, Sinful Colors.

They eye balls were created with different sizes of dotting tools. The fingers were done with a detailing brush and dotting tools. The easiest way to create the fingers was to create a circle for the base of the finger and then draw it from there. I added the nails with white before painting them with Zoya Lara. Once you've put the nails on, it's a good gauge for where you need to add more "meat" to the fingers :]

Don't forget to check out my other Blogoween manis to conjure up some wicked mani ideas for the 31st! In the mean time I'm going to start brainstormin' for Friday!

Have a good one!
