Hello, everyone! Hopefully my 13 Days of Halloween Nail Art starts today! Life is so hectic and I find I only do my nails once a week. A rare week I do my nails twice. So the thought of 13 nail arts in one month sounded impossible. So this year I’m making some super quick and easy art! These could look very different from previous years with super intricate arts. Additionally, these 13 days will include some throwbacks to my favorite Halloween art from the last ten years!
My brain came up with what I thought was a super great idea. So I figured a black with a black flare would stand out and be like a secret message. I had a regular nail polish that resembled a reflective one and I was like let’s put them together and see.
Believe it or not, I have two polishes called After Midnight and they basically look the same in the bottle, but one is reflective and one isn’t. So I thought if I layered them together I would create a fun message. I made my base with Girly Bits and then I wrote a message with the KB Shimmer.
Here are the colors I used. After my secret messages, I used Halloween paints to dry in and around the message.
- Basis: Girly Bits After Midnight
- Letters: Black reflective KB Shimmer After Midnight
- Orange: Jessica Cosmetics Sahara Sun
- Green: Jessica Cosmetics Green
- Purple: Jessica Cosmetics Purple
Here with lightning. As you can see, the message didn’t get off the ground as much as I expected. Maybe this concept would have worked over a plain black cream, but then it wouldn’t have been such a secret message.
Here it is without the dry brush. I love the way this looks. The reflective material dries with a texture so it’s like a 3D look. Seriously, how fun is this, even if the end result doesn’t work out the way I imagined.
