The One With the Creepy Eye Manicure

9:00:00 AM


Good morning polished world!  Happy Halloween to you all!!!!  Are you dressed up as something spooky for work or whatever it is you may be doing today?  I was supposed to dress up as a pineapple along with my co-worker but well that didn't really go as planned.  Safe to say I don't think she's going to talk to me haha just kidding she loves me.  Instead I'm going to wear a pumpkin shirt and call it a day.

Today I'm sharing with you my last Halloween manicure.  It is a re-creation of my spooky eye manicure, which I now am realizing look like cat eyes.  This design was originally a re-creation of one done by Nails by Cambria on Instagram.  Is she even still around?  Now thanks to the Instagram algorithms I never see posts from people I used to.  Sigh.

Let's take a look!


Here's where I normally write what colors I used, but honestly as I'm writing this, I have a horrible migraine and I cannot even think which colors were used.  Actually let me give it a shot....
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
  • ORLY - Glowstick
  • ORLY - Thrill Seeker
A quick google search of Thrill Seeker confirmed that's the green bottle I'm holding!  Alaina - 1, Migraine - 0.  Oh, I also used INM Northern Lights over the gradient - does my score go up to 2-0 now that I remembered that?!



The looks is actually super easy to acheive even though it looks very difficult.  My middle and ring finger I painted white and did a gradient with Thrill Seeker and Glowstick.  I then added a top coat of INM Northern Lights.  When that was dried, I painted on the design using a nail art brush and Liquid Vinyl.  

Took some time and precision, but I finally got the eyes to look how I wanted them.  I think next year if I attempt this design, I'm going to make the eyes a little larger.  I feel like the gradient got lost.

What do you think?  Spooky nail art?  Something you've tried?

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!!!

Until next time, <3.
