Happy Halloween my dear sweet friends!!! I hope you all have a haunting celebration that gives you shivers and please be careful :)
SuperChic Lacquer Deadpool and I painted the design with acrylic paint. I really didn't think an evil castle could be shrunk down to the size of a small pea... but apparently there's no limit to what black magic can do!

Yeah that'll teach me to pick my nose XD Happy almost-Halloween!
Parrot Polish Banana Sorbet and the green is Dance Legend Levitan that I bought from Hypnotic Polish. I think the pastel neon yellow of Banana Sorbet really makes it look like snot!

What's that behind you? In the wall? How did the lights suddenly go out...
Serum No. 5 Budding Lights for the glow. I used that same grey acrylic paint to add the monster, thus making it show up in the dark but it falls away against the background in the light!
I'm not even sorry about posting two designs in one day. I just got so wrapped up in making Halloween designs that I have too many!! Score for you!!!
Yeeeech! I think something burrowed its way into my nails & laid eggs! This is HORRIBLE!!!

If you ever have the feeling someone is walking behind you... don't look. RUN!
Parrot Polish Georgia Forest as a base. It's a thermal, so when the polish is cold, it's a dark dusty grey and the shadows aren't visible (or as invisible as possible when working with a holo polish & plain acrylic paint). When it warms up, the shadows pop out!
The pinky & index nails are painted with SuperChic Lacquer Mink. It's one of my favorites but has been discontinued for a while now. The design was painted with acrylic paint, I tried to mix up the grey as closely as I could get to the color of the cold-state polish!

Thin, crawly legs sticking out to all sides. Eight eyes staring at you, watching your every move. How can anyone be afraid of spiders? :-p
Masura. I received this, plus nine others, as press samples to share with you. Holographic Kiss is one of my favorites and immediately caught my eye. So pretty and feminine!
The spider is painted with new black & white acrylic paint that I bought two weeks ago from NailProduct.nl. They are AMAZING, very smooth and they make painting tiny lines so much easier! The black is really watery (actually exactly like water, but annoyingly opaque) and it smears with my top coat, but I think I bought the wrong bottle. It's hard to tell from a website. I'll place another order and let you know!

Be careful digging in your backyard this fall season... you never know what you might find!
It took a lot of different steps and some logic for the order of the steps, but none of it was hard or really very time consuming :)

I didn't think I'd ever paint Jack Skellington nail art but his amazed, sensitive side seemed to call to me. I've always wanted to try painting in black & white. Turns out it's fun!
Mitty Peachy 000 detail brush.
I painted on a base of Picture Polish Bright White. The other nails are Picture Polish Black, topped with the OPI matte top coat.

Who wants to play HANGMAN?? It's game over before you even start!! I love coming up with these 'designs with a twist' that change their meaning in the dark.
Serum No. 5 Blue Blazes & Glo-balt Blue for the background. The moon is made with white acrylic paint first, to make a base for Serum No. 5 Guiding Lights. The rest is all painted with acrylic paint.
My funniest moment with this design is my mom's reaction. I showed her the light pic and she exclaimed "Awww now THAT is a nice view! See, you can make lovely Halloween art too!" And then I clicked through to the glow pic... Her face!!! I hadn't laughed so hard in weeks!

Oh ouch! I didn't think that cheating while playing cards would get me THIS! I think they might have been demonic cards, but still...
This is yummy and yucky at the same time!

Smell that foul odor of rotting flesh? It's your friendly neighborhood zombie crawling out of his hole to eat your brains!!! This freak was a lot of fun to paint... and also freaked me out a little bit :-p
SuperChic Lacquer Zombie Crush and it's delicious!! I painted the zombie with acrylic paint and my Mitty Peachy 000 detail brush.
At first it was just a floating head & arm and it looked... off. I added a little arm to the side of it and some ground underneath, and suddenly it looked like he was dragging himself which was awesomely freaky!

What's your biggest fear... Spiders? Monsters? Darkness? How about ALL OF THEM!
To make the glow in the dark eyes, I just added some Serum No. 5 Budding Lights after I finished painting the design. It's really creepy how they glow!
I used to be REALLY afraid of the dark as a kid. I'd especially be scared of anything that might be lurking under my bed, so I'd run up to it and jump on it real quick so nothing could grab my legs. One day I had a really scary dream about something lurking in the closet.... and I haven't been afraid since :-p

Gyaaaa what have I DONE??? What will I paint on, now that my nails are gone?
I hope this never happens for real to any of you! Be careful with those nails ladies & gents!

He's coming for you! Your days are numbered and he will come and drag you down to where the bad people go... where there's lots of polish and junk food and naughty feelings :-p
LakoDom but just the light grey was too... 'happy'. Too optimistic. The bright flames made it even happier sort of, but then I added some thick smoke and it was like it suddenly came to life!

Oh yeeeeah it's October! That means I'm busting out the Halloween designs, we are going to get LOOSE just like these ghosties over here! Look at them partying, they'll be at it until the break of dawn ;-)
I added the 'twist' in the way of ghosts with a bit of Serum No. 5 Budding Lights. I don't mind that the flakies from the polish are visible in the light, it just gives the graveyard a slightly supernatural feel :-p
