Halloween Graveyard

October 24, 2013

This year I decided to participate in the Halloween spirit and came up with this graveyard manicure. I am sooo happy with how it came out, I'm really excited to share it with you and hear what you think about this design. So let's get to it!


I started this manicure with two coats of Zoya Storm, a black scattered holographic polish. I wanted to create a bright background for my stamping, so I sponged Sinful Shine Royal Flush on the tips. It looks like a bright pink in the sun, but in shade it has a dusty berry color. I chose this polish because it's very pigmented, so I don't end up using a lot of it to achieve a good coverage over the black base.
For the stamping I used Konad Black and stamped the graveyard design from the Bunny Nails Holiday plate HD04, from last year's holiday collection.
I decided to add some glitter above the stamped design, where the two colors were overlapping, so it would look a bit more sparkly. I applied a bit of GK 734A over it, which is a fine silver holographic glitter. I topped it all with one coat of Poshe.



For me it was a very successful manicure, I really enjoyed creating it and the finished look was just awesome! It's been a while since I used stamping for my nail art, and I really missed it. I've been too busy swatching and reviewing lately, that I forgot how much fun it is just to create a design for myself.
I hope you will like my Halloween design as much as I did, and I would love to hear your thoughts about it! Hopefully I will get the chance to create another Halloween inspired manicure soon, before this awesome holiday is over (because posting Halloween manicure on Thanksgiving is a bit odd).
