It’s been a long time since I posted here, hasn’t it? Only befitting that I return to regular blogging in the month of my favorite holiday and with a whimsical post then!
All October long I’ve been painting my nails in Halloween colors. For the first week of October/last week of September they were just solid orange with black tips. For the second week of October I left them mostly clear and tipped them in orange with a thin black stripe between the clear and orange and the finger next to the pinkie on both hands had a jack-o-lantern face. But for the last stretch of Halloween I really wanted to go all. Initially all month long my nails were going to be done in a candy corn fashion with the thumbs and middle fingers being jack-o-lanterns, but since my yellow nail polish was dried out I nixed that idea. Instead I decided to try my hand at a variety of styles. Naturally my left hand has the more detailed stuff and just looks better, not surprising since I am right-handed, but even the right hand came out pretty good this time.
Left hand, starting with thumb: black with white skeleton; green with black graveyard silhouette of a tree, crescent moon, and tombstone; jack o lantern; Frankenstein; monster fangs.
Right hand, starting with thumb: Jack Skellington; purple background with black bat; red glowing eyes in the dark; eyeball; and gray tombstone with green grass at base and has RIP and a cross on it.Tagged: halloween, manicure, nail art, nails, spooky
