Hello Lovely Ladies,
I know that Halloween is not until tomorrow…
… but I wanted to post my Halloween manicure today, just in case some of you are looking for an idea. My manicure is hugely inspired by two fellow bloggers, so maybe you too can take something from this look which will spark your very own creative idea.
There was NO way I was NOT going to use Cult Nails Deal With It for this look! That was my foundation, and it just flew from there. In fact, thanks to Maria from Cult Nails, my manicure was featured in MyStyle’s Halloween Nail Trends 2012!
Can you tell I’m more into the cutesy-spooky rather than the gory-spooky?! (I cannot stomach the sight or suggestion of blood and gore- yes, I am the one with both hands covering my eyes during a movie/TV series etc. I don’t even peek through my fingers lol). Last year’s Frankenstein manicure was also more cutesy than scarry

I had two MAJOR sources of inspiration and full credit needs to be given to these talented Ladies:
Anutka from Wacky Laki gave me the idea of adding gems to the spiders (to make them more 3D) and for the french-tip spiderweb idea
To create this look I sponged my bare nails with the very opaque Revlon Sassy first, followed by Deal With It. I stamped the spiderwebs with BM-13 using Borghese Brunello Grape. The spiders are from plate T29.
The ring finger is one coat of Wet n’ Wild Club Havannah with China Glaze Street Racing saran wrapped onto it. The pumpkin face stamp came from plate D03.
Are you into the Halloween ‘festivities’?
I know that Halloween is very popular in Canada… much less so in Poland. Does your country make a big deal of this day?
When it comes to Halloween, do you like the blood and gore… or the cutesy opportunity to dress up?
Any costume ideas?
THANK YOU FOR READING!
PS. You will WANT to tune in tomorrow for a BUNDLE (hint hint hint) of a treat opportunity tomorrow
