So what do you think? Are you as proud of me as I am of myself? LOL jk - don't answer that... I know you are ;] Anyways... I saw a kitchen towel at Marshall's yesterday with gravestones and these cute, yet distributing, "names" on them. I decided to run with how much I liked them and slap it (nicely) onto my nails :]

For the grave stones I used China Glaze Recycle. The sky is Kawako. I used my Amuse nail art pen to do the letters. I think the moral of this mani is that you SHOULD NOT hire me to engrave your gravestone. Unless you like toddler handwriting - hit me up. I can't recall the other polishes, but they were 100% Zoya. I did mix 2 Zoya colors to make the zombie hand though :D

So there ya have it! My spooky graveyard scene. I kinda don't want to take this off. NO SWATCHES NEXT WEEK Y'ALL! Just kidding... Kinda... Don't forget to check out the past couple looks I've done for Blogoween - here.

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!
