Halloween Manis

I know I am suuuuper late to post this but I just haven't been around my computer enough lately to sit download pictures and upload them to my blog ( I know, bad girl!) I am going to try and blog at least once a week from now until my vacation on December 16-30. Let's see how that goes! So here is my super late post about the two halloween manis I did.

Please excuse the super dry cuticles and just skin in general. I saw a girl post a full candy corn manicure on PaA which I loved but wanted something a little more simple. I thought about doing all yellow nails since it's the base for the candy corn but decided the orange was more halloween-y. Not only is this mani super cute, it also glows in the dark!! Thank you ghoulish glow! I don't think I can explain how much I love Ghoulish Glow. It smooths everything out so nicely and glows so well! Every night I'd snuggle under the blankets and giggle because my nails were glowing :) this lasted about 4 days but then I got bored of it and changed it. The colours I used were Kleancolor- Mango, Urban Outfitters- UV, Essie- Blanc amd China Glaze- Ghoulish Glow. In this picture I don't have a top coat on. I put on Beauty Secrets top coat afterward.

This is my second halloween mani. I thought of it ( I know not very original) then the day before I did it I saw an almost identical mani online so I was embarrassed to post mine because hers was so much better. I don't remember who it was so I can't give them credit. If you know who it was please message me so I can give her the credit she deserves.

This was my first attempt at a nail design and my first time using a paint brush on my nails so don't be too critical please. I'm super old fashioned and love love love french manicures. I used to do them allll the time when I was younger and I have never grown out of loving the look. I was trying to think of a way to use the Wet and Wild Fantasy Makers Creepy Pumpkin so I'm so happy I thought of using it for this manicure. The colours I used were Finger Paints- Black Expressionism, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear- Sun Kissed, Wet and Wild Fantasy Makers- Creepy Pumpkin and Seche Vite. This was my first time using Seche Vite, I fell in love instantly! The smell made me a little woozy but I learned to not have my nails so close to my face when I use it haha. This lasted over a week long! Well those were my halloween manis, I hope you enjoyed them!

Thanks for reading!
