Halloween #3 – Gothique Romance

Hi all, today I have something that’s not quite so Halloweenish, just a bit darker…  Like chocolate.  :D Also, this is my ‘favourite’ type of nail art – the Multi Layer!
1st layer was the black & red sponging, as well as the cream base on the ring finger.  2nd layer was the roses in a contrasting red on the black areas (all handpainted with a tiny nail art brush) along with fishnet & cross.  3rd layer was the black roses on the red area plus the adding of the red glitter accents on the ring finger.  Finally, the 4th layer was the matte topcoat.

Halloween #2 – Silent Hill

Hey everyone!  I have for you today some misty mountain scenery (no relation to the one Smaug lives in) which is usually the perfect setting for some ghostly apparitions…  Or a monster or 3.

Halloween #1 – Bones & Blood

It’s Halloween again & after doing a series of 13 last year I had many, many requests for another round of gory nail art so here I am, caving.  I’m doing much less this year (only a series of 4, sorry folks, but it’s hard not to replicate stuff I’ve already done) but I’ll post 1 each day till Halloween so don’t forget to come back tomorrow for more!  Today’s offering is, as the title said, some bones & blood.  Everything was freehanded with a nail art brush & a toothpick.

Sweets For My Sweet (Tooth)

Recently, I learnt of a new stamping technique where one ends up with very original DIY nail stickers.  Of course I had to try it out!  It took a LOT of nail polish since I was literally painting every tiny detail but you can decide if the results were worth it:

Gone Dotty – Super Mario Mushrooms

IMG_6755
Happy Monday everyone, hope you had a good weekend!  This is part 3 of my Gone Dotty series (Part 1 & Part 2 here) & following in my oldskool games mode, I made some mushrooms.  :D  Just FYI for those of you who don’t know your Super Mario, the red mushroom makes you big, the blue mushroom makes you small, the green mushroom gives you a 1up & the yellow mushroom with the red dots makes you GIGANTIC…  The brown angry one is a Goomba. :D
