My first Halloween nail art of the year!!! Oh How I love this time of the year! I do have some manicures from last year that I didn't post, so I will be filtering those in. For now this is all new and for Crumpet's Nail Tarts!
I tried and tried to clean this up and I still don't think it is completely free from residue. On my hands it looks awesome, however in the pictures the imperfections are seen. That doesn't mean I am not in love with this design, I really am! I am sad I won't be keeping it for very long. . . The cost of doing nail art challenges.
This was done with Julep Cleopatra which is a matte black, but I used top coat on it and so it shines brilliantly! The other main polish is Pacifica Red Red Wine. I got this in my September Ipsy box. I really like the color. It is dark and rich. However, like many a dark reds, it does stain a bit. Consequently I had clean-up issues, as previously mentioned. I did use the Elmer's Glue method, so it could have been a lot worse. After I sponged the two colors on, I used Konad Special Black and Winstonia W116 to stamp the bats on my ring finger and thumb.
A nice, simple Halloween look. Who could ask for anything more? Make sure to check out the other participants!
