So I decided to join a nail art challenge. I have never done one, but I couldn't resist this one. It is all centered on Halloween. I thought it might push me to try designing my own things more. It is sponsered by this lovely Lacquer Dreams.
Day one is Horror Movies. I am not your typical horror movie fan. I don't really like gore, but I do love a good ghost story. I had a roommate introduce me to The Changeling in college and I fell in love. I have come to learn it is not well known, so you can read up on it if you click on the picture. I used the ball, the medal, and the mediums paper as inspiration as well as the house on fire. I hope if you have seen the movie you get it.
I am sad help didn't completely fit on my nail. I thought about fixing it, but I was lazy. I used all China Glaze polishes. I used a yellow for the base of the flames, but I put it away and don't remember which one it was. I also used Jungle Queen, Recycle, Kalahari Kiss, Midnight Kiss, Hey Sailor, Brownstone, and Riveting.
I really like how my thumb turned out with the medal.
On my right hand I did flames. These look oranger and brighter than they are. I am not really happy with how they turned out. I hand drew them and I think there has got to be a better way to do flames. If anyone has any ideas I would love some advice.
