Good morning polished world! How are you all doing today? I'm doing quite well. I think....just maybe....that I am feeling better. I don't want to say it because now there's a cold going around at work and with my luck I"m going to catch it. Let's pray I do not.
Since it's October, I'm going to attempt to do Halloween themed manicures the whole month. I'm not ready to do the cute little monsters or jack-o-lanterns yet, so I have been looking for some subtle Halloween manicures to re-create. I should be creative and come up with my own, but hey I was sick, I am allowed to use Pinterest to get some inspiration.
Today's design is a recreation of this bright, fun kitchen sink manicure by Bad Girl Nails. I recently purchased the whole China Glaze Ghouls Night Out Collection, so I had a perfect orange for this design! Ugh I love this collection, I do have some original ideas using the polishes!
Let's take a look!
- Orly - Liquid Vinyl
- China Glaze - Lady and the Vamp
Oh my goodness. Lady and the Vamp is the BEST neon orange polish I have ever owned! The pictures here do NOT do it justice! It is so bright and creamy. Every other orange neon that I have ever owned has been extremely sheer and they take 4 coats to be opaque on their own, or 2 coats over white which is no fun. This polish is literally two coats and you have the brightest orange highlighter neon nails ever! I'm so happy I purchased this! I'm excited to see if the other neons in the collection are opaque also!
I used my Twinkled T chevron vinyls for the ring finger. Now instead of painting over them like I would when using tape, I decided to sponge on the black polish. It worked, but I don't recommend doing it. I think it would have been a zillion times easier and less messy to just paint normally over the top of the chevrons. Plus, when sponging, I found that some of the polish ended up sneaking under the vinyl. I'm not angry with how it turned out, but I was kind of annoyed. Maybe I didn't push the vinyl down enough...who knows.
What do you think? Fan of this orange and black manicure? I think Bad Girl Nails' was a lot better than mine.
Well I am off...maybe to plan some more Halloween nails! Until next time, <3.
