Yesterday, I was a little tease and only gave you 3 clues on Swatch And Learn plus a small social-media reveal of the Hallowe’en nail art on my thumb.
Well, now I’m going to show you the full manicure of the Hallowe’en Nails I’ve been wearing for a few days!
To create this simple look, I used all 4 shades in the OPI Rock Goddess Mini Lacquer Set (the 4th shade was used on my thumb).
Then, I brought out a bunch of my beloved Bundle Monster Image Plates from different collections.
The images stamped in black were done with my almost-finished bottle of Konad Special Nail Polish in Black, and for Mr. Skelly Ton, I asked China Glaze Snow for some help!
Although I like all the designs, my favourite definitely is the skeleton because he looks like he’s throwing his hands in the air, and waving ’em all around like he just doesn’t care! 😉
Hehe, and when I show you that nail in closer detail, you’ll see how it appears that he’s throwing confetti in the air for a cray-cray dance party! (Yeah, that’s how excited I am about him. I never say cray-cray!)
I can also imagine him dancing to some awesome hip hop – haha, nothing like the music played by this skeleton I showed you a while ago on Instagram!
Also, as you can see, I trimmed my nails quite short, but look how much of the skeleton shows up! And see how even the fine details show up? I’m very impressed with the Bundle Monster image plate allowing me to pick up the image well with my Konad stamper!

(When I wrote that post, I had literally just tried my hand at it, so I addressed many of the common problems that I ran into and how you can make stamping easier.)
Finally, I want you wish you all a HAPPY HALLOWE’EN! (It’s my favourite holiday!)
Have a fun (and safe) time whatever you choose to do!
What’s on your nails today? Do you dress up for Hallowe’en or do anything special? If you could create any nail art with a wave of a wand, what would it look like?
Edit: It’s cool when companies take the time out to retweet and/or reply to encourage ‘the little guy’! 🙂
