What I Wore on My Nails for Hallowe’en

Halloween ManicureThis is What I Wore on My Nails for Hallowe’en! ๐Ÿ™‚

At first I really wanted to do some Frankenstein Monster or witch nail art, but I was so pressed for time. However, I didn’t want to just wear any ole manicure. It needed that Hallowe’en spirit!

As I browsed my nail-polish collection, my eyes zeroed in on Pretty Serious Swatch And Learn, the multichromatic green that I designed. (Click the link to see it solo – the multiple colours really shine through that way.)

But it needed more of a festive vibe, so I kept searching for something to layer on top. Finally – I found my bottle of OPI Where’s My Blanket???, which is from the OPI Peanuts Collection. It’s a glitter polish suspended in a clear base, and it has pale peach, black, and white sequins.

Layering a coat of OPI Who Are You Calling Bossy?!?, a black creme also from the OPI Peanuts Collection, I put the green on top. I did this to darken the green. The finishing touch was the glitter. Together, I call this manicure “Hallowe’en Soup” – hehe, it’s the first thing that sprung to my mind!

Edit:ย This is the manicure I wore to the OPI Hawaii Collection Media Launch on October 31, 2014!

What did you wear on your nails for Hallowe’en? Did you also wear a costume? When you don’t have too much time to spend on your nails, but still want a nice manicure, is there a nail polish you reach for because it’s a tried-and-true favourite?

      Hey Melissa!

      Thank you for encouraging me so much and for commenting regularly. Whenever I see your comments, I smile! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been falling behind a bit on replying to all my lovely readers’ comments, but if I reply to a few each day, eventually I’ll catch up. It’s just that after work, I’ve been feeling more exhausted than usual these days.

    Halloween isn’t a big deal over here (although store owners try to convince us we need pumpkins and skulls and spiderwebs and witches) so I wore Illamasqua Stagnate as I had just received that and I really wanted to see what it looked like ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hmmmm… soup, eh? So what are the black parts? Burned peas or just black lentils? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Hey Joyce!

      Hehe, yeah, anything to “sell” the holiday, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Although I wish they sold pumpkins all year long. I can’t get enough of them – even if it’s just looking at them. They make me smile!

      Haha, the black parts in the Monster Soup are squid ink and bat droppings. ๐Ÿ˜›
