How was your weekend? Tell me all about it. I would tell you about mine but I am just too exhausted 😛
With less than 10 weeks left it is time for week #44 of the #52weeknailchallenge from Polish Portfolio. This challenge is similar to the 31 Day challenge except this is one prompt for every week of the year. You can share yours on any day of the week as long as it falls within the week. Here is the list of prompts and you can use #52weeknailchallenge to keep track of any posts. I hope you’ll join in.
The prompt this week is Halloween. It’s not really a topic you’ll find here often. We don’t celebrate halloween here although it is starting to get a smidge more popular for parties etc. It’s definitely more of an American thing. I do love halloween nail art but I just never felt inclined to do it myself. So here goes,
I was completely inspired by this post by Delishious nails and I knew I wanted to try it. Of course I didn’t have the same polish or stamping plates so I had to concoct something myself. I started with 2 coats of ILNP – Missed calls on all my nails and left that to dry completely. I then added one coat of essence – Hello holo. This combination brings it a bit closer to the polish used in the original version. Once this was dry I used a small piece of sponge and Sinful Colors – Snow me white to make the wispy white smudge line across the nail. I then left that to dry a little and then started stamping. On my ring finger O used the big spider from BPL-o31 and Mundo de Unas – Black. I shrunk the spider so I could fit more on the nail. On the rest of my nails I used the spider web and spider on the same plate and stamped them randomly on the other nails. I topcoated and that was that.
What do you think? Does it do for halloween? Do you think my combination of Missed calls and Hello holo comes close to the polish used in the original version. I just love the holo overload and I really like the frosty combination. I’d love to hear what you think though. Do you celebrate halloween? What traditions do you have?
Thanks for reading,
