"This is Halloween" Nail Art Challenge: Bats

Hello and happy Friday!!!!

Today's "This is Halloween" Nail Art Challenge prompt is bats. I was going for a very wearable Halloween nail this time. I chose to recreate my black lace french tips from a few months ago with bat stamps added. The black lace looked eerie enough--like the intricate railings on an old haunted house, so I thought that would be a good start for this mani.

As before, I used two coats of Zoya Rose, one coat of INM Northern Lights, a lot of dry time, then stamped the french tip design from BM-18 and the bats from BM-13 with Konad Special polish in black. I finished this off with a coat of NYC's In a New York Minute Fastdry Topcoat.

This ended up being a very subtle Halloween look, which was my intent. Here's a shot with flash. I think the green shimmer in Zoya Rose lends itself nicely to this look.
