The One With the Ghoulish Ghosts

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing on this Wednesday?  The weather is finally like Fall here with temperatures in the 50s and 60s.  We are due for a frost and the leaves are finally changing.  Ahhh, it's truly my favorite time of year.  Now, I just need to get some apples and start making some pies!

Before the pie making, there's some blogging to do.  Today's Halloween design was inspired by Coffee & Nail Polish.  She created the most unique ghost design for #GlamNailsChallengeOct.  In all my years of blogging I had never seen anything like it, and I for sure never thought of doing it!

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Sally Hansen - Stilletos & Studs
  • INM - Northern Lights
  • Acrylics
Isn't this so amazing?!  Shannon came up with the idea of see through little ghosts.  I always hate doing ghost designs because the opaque white always didn't look right to me.  While this looks like an unbelievably complicated design, it was so easy to do!  I took white acrylic paint and watered it down.  I painted the design on the nail, then let it sit for about 30 seconds.  I then wiped off the access and was left with the outline of the ghost.  I brushed around some excess acrylics to fill in some really naked areas and was left with little ghosts!

Stilettos & Studs was a great base color for this manicure.  I debated on going with a straight black base with a scattered holo topper, but when I saw this polish in my drawer I had to use it.  It gives it that cloudy, spooky, night sky feel.  Two coats and I had full coverage of this Miracle Gel.  It wore like a beast, it took a little scrubbing to remove it.

What do you think?  Like these little ghosts?  Think they're spooky or cute?

Until next time, <3.
