13 Days of Halloween: The Frankenstein's

Base colors in OPI's Black Onyx from the Tuxedo Collection and China Glaze's Def Defying from the World's Away Collection.
I used Fresh Frog of Bel-Air from the Muppets Holiday Collection for the glitters.  The Frankenstein's were done with black and white acrylic paints.

I think these are my cutest little monsters. :)

13 Days of Halloween: Candy Corns

I realize that I have the colors mixed around a little, but you have to admit.. you immediately thought candy corn (and not just because of the title). ;)

I have a base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection, and it was done over with a gradient of I Just Can't Cope-acabana from the Brazil Collection and Can't AFjord Not To from the Nordic Collection.
Over the top using a black and silver glitter striper, I painted the design.  That's it!

13 Days of Halloween: Polka Dot Webs

Base color in OPI's Can't AFjord Not To from the Nordic Collection.
Using a white Konad stamping polish and Konad plate, I stamped on the polka dots.  Then, using a black striper, I painted on the spider webs near the cuticles.

This idea came from Nailed It! magazine and I thought it was honestly the cutest thing ever.  Hope you like it!!

13 Days of Halloween: Frankenstein Tips

There is no base color with this design, just my natural nail!  They look good right?? :)
The tips were simply done using China Glaze's Def Defying from the World's Away Collection.  The stitches were done using a black striper and it was all sealed off with a top coat!  Very effective, eh?
