Halloween Skeleton Nails

Happy Halloween everyone! Today I have my Halloween mani to share with you. I actually have two other Halloween/Fall nails that I did last week but just didn't get a chance to post yet. I just wanted to do a quick post to share what I am wearing today! I actually did a variation of these nails on my friend Julie last year when she graduated from her Radiology program after she had found the idea on Pinterest. I've been wanting to try these on myself ever since!

To do this mani I started with two coats of Color Club Revvvolution, a beautiful black holo. It's got such a fantastic formula! It goes on so smooth... not to thick, not to thin, and not streaky at all. I forgot how much I love this polish. I actually have swatched this color before, here, in the sun. Unfortunately the weather is rather gloomy so I haven't been able to find any sun to photograph these nails in this time.

I put a coat of Seche Vite on top to help speed up the drying process, and then on my right hand I stamped the skull design using Bundle Monster Plate BM-225 and Konad Special Polish in White.

Then for my left hand I used my Two Way Nail Art Brush and Pen in White, using the pen side to draw on the skeleton's bones. I really like this tool, it's pretty easy to work with.

Then I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite. Now, you may wonder why I only have a picture of three fingers in that first picture... it's because I had such a hard time getting my pinky to behave for these pictures! Plus, my patient fiance was trying to help me take my pictures... and as you could probably guess, photographing nails wasn't all that interesting to him! Lol. Here is an example of how my pinky was giving me trouble... This was the best one I could find! Thanks for looking.

  1. This (and the one you did for Julie) is one of my favorite manis you've ever done! Doing it over the holo makes it extra fun.
