Seems like there are so many Halloween nail art videos being shared on social media lately that I wanted to take a completely different approach to the usual kitsch. With my schedule being so hectic lately, my stamping plates have come to the rescue again.
My weapon of choice? BP-79 from Born Pretty Store.
BP-79 from Born Pretty Store. The roses from the top right hand corner of the plate were used for this manicure.
I wanted to have a somewhat Goth look for this one, so I opted to paint my nails red and stamp them with black polish.
Curve-aceous by Sephora by OPI is a gorgeous shimmery red.
I wanted to make the base color a little darker, but I was afraid that the stamping wouldn’t show on top, so I attempted to add some darker patches with a sponge and Define Good… by China Glaze.
A very subtle blend of the two colors is accomplished with a sponge dipped lightly in Define Good… by China Glaze.
The stamping was done with Konad Special Nail Polish in Black.
Every rose has its thorns. A dark take on a classic pattern.
And so here I am, slightly bucking the trend with this sophisticated manicure during Halloween season. It’s totally perfect because I was told to dress in formal black with a red accent for today’s concert. 🙂 Happy polishing!
