happy halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

I really like Halloween but I don't usually do Halloween nails - I rarely wear orange and I hate spiders and webs so I skip the spooky manis.
But this year I decided to sport an orange manicure and be festive!
No spiders though. I don't go there.

Tada! An abstract orange mani for Hallow's Eve.

The base color for this manicure is China Glaze - Orange You Hot? from the Summer Neons collection. It needs two coats (and sometimes three) to cover fully but it dries quickly.
This is a shade of neon orange that I find I can wear without my skin looking dead and gross.
I wouldn't say I like it, but I don't hate it the way I hate most oranges.

The art on these nails is actually a stamp! It looks like a drizzled technique or a splatter but it is actually Konad m70.
I had a lot of compliments on these nails because people were noticing that my nails were Halloween-appropriate, and everyone thought I had drizzled black polish on top! The stamping design really fools you. I dig it!
I used Konad Special Black polish for stamping.

We didn't get very many trick-or-treaters at my house this year. Guess I'll go eat all the leftover candy...


  1. This is a really cool effect. Does look drizzled

  2. Very! And yeah to leftover candy!

  3. Love the stamp, it looks awesome! :D

  4. Love it! I'm not too fond of Orange but I do love some Orange shades. Have you tried opi chopsticking to my story. Or China glaze desert sun. They actually look very very pretty on. Chopsticking is a one coater! I love it.

  5. I love it! I love orange and black together and that stamp is amazinggg!

  6. Love that orange, It pops like crazy! Very cool Halloween Mani!

  7. This is really cool- and you could do the design in other colors and it would still look awesome.

  8. That's a cool stamp! It really does look like you drizzled black polish, but I bet this made much less of a mess! :)

  9. Pretty! I didn't even know this was a stamp design, I assumed you drizzled the polish- it makes for a really nice Halloween mani, anyways!

  10. i really thought these were drizzled with black nail polish too! they look great, i can see why you got lots of compliments on them!

  11. These look great! I'll have to check and see if I have that stamp and try it with different color combos.

  12. this is really cool! great halloween mani!
