"This is Halloween" Nail Art Challenge: Inspired by Ghosts

Hello again!!

All indoors, artificial light, no flash.
Today's nail art challenge prompt is "Ghosts". I had several ideas this for this from simple stamping (Turns out I don't have a stamping plate with a ghost on it! Sadface.) to Pac-Man Ghosts (yes, nerd, I know, but I'm going to have to do that one someday. It just didn't feel like a Halloween theme enough to me to do it now.). My plan was to try a few things out and see how it went. After the water marble fail last week, I wanted to make sure this week's manis were win. I ended up loving my first attempt. Here it is!

Indoors, artificial light, no flash.
Super simple, but cute, I think. This is two coats of Milani White Out topped with one coat of Revlon Spooky Skull and some Seche Vite. Spooky Skull is new, according to the sticker on the bottle, and it is a sheer white crelly (halfway between a creme and a jelly!) with white shimmer. Once that was good and dry, I used the end of an unbent bobby pin to fill in for the dotting tools I do not own yet. I used Konad Special polish in black to dot on the eyes and mouths. I then used the pointy end of an orange-wood stick dipped in some more Milani White Out to add pupils. They were so cute and perfect, I skipped on the topcoat because I would have been devastated had I smeared them.

I'm not quite ready to wear Halloween manis, so I did take this off later in the day. This is definitely one I'll try again once it gets closer to the end of the month because I did love it so.

If I can get this Inlinkz thing to work, you should be able to check out the other participants below!


More soon!! ^_^


  1. Your ghosts are awesome. it's so funny how it looks like they're all terrified of eachother. so adorable!

    for inlinkz make sure you switch to html view in your post editor before pasting it at the end. I'm on my phone but I think the html tab is on the left above where you enter the text!

  2. Thank you! <3 Haha, yes, that was completely unintentional, but it worked out nicely!

    Oh, yeah, now I see that button! Wow. Haha, thanks! I'll give that a shot this next time around. New blogger is new--I appreciate the help!!


    1. No problem! You can still fix this one, just edit it and copy and paste the code you have at the bottom into the html view :D

      I'm still getting the hang of blogger too, but I'm lucky enough to have a background in html and web design! If you ever need any help just let me know.

    2. Aha! Got it now!

      Yes, I've been just sticking to the basics with Blogger so far--nothing fancy yet! But it's fun to tinker around and learn as I go--I'll definitely keep you in mind for questions--I appreciate the offer!

      Thanks again!!! ^_^
