N.A.I.L. - October - Spooky

Hi all!

Today is Halloween for those of you who celebrate it. I never have, it's not a tradition here. Nonetheless I have enjoyed seeing Halloween mani's in the blogosphere, and this will be this year's last addition from me. Spooky translated, very traditionally perhaps, into ghosts.

The not so spooky polishes:
  • W7 - 28 Black
  • Sinful Colors - 101 Snow Me White
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Hulk Smash

I started with a black base and a layer of top coat. Then I wanted to achieve something like Chalkboard Nail's smoke, but I haven't mastered this watercolour technique yet. So my ghosts didn't look that mystical as intended. That is when I decided to dab on some Hulk Smash. Hulk Smash is a green glow in the dark polish that gives the ghosts a bit more spookiness. I used a dotting tool to add the eyes and mouths and another layer of HK Girl top coat to seal it in.

I don't have a place where I can photograph the glow in the dark, but it did glow a bit.

In the end I think my ghosts didn't turn out that bad, they are kind of cute. I hope you have a great Halloween!

More spookiness down here!


  1. I really like how these turned out! Great job!

    1. Thanks, at first I didn't like them, but they grew on me, I think the faces did the trick.
