I will put it under Halloween nail art, so here we go – my first one this year. I’ve been practicing a lot of free-hand stripes lately and I’m not pleased with these. They’re slightly wonky and uneven.
It’s dark, it’s red, it has black and also a surprise – definitely Halloween! You’ll see the surprise part later, it’s another first for me 🙂
I do have 1 photo of these in natural daylight as well, have to warn you though – it’s super glossy. And ofc my camera seems to freak out on this red, almost always. This time was no exception.
Let’s see what I used to create this look..
- red – China Glaze Long Kiss
- black – China Glaze Liquid Leather
- striping brush
- French manicure guides
- small flat detail brush
It was fun to wear these though and from a certain angle and light they looked like black. Next photo depicts the surprise, I do apologize about the fogginess – this combination was driving my camera mad. I did take several photos and that was the best I got from that angle.
Yes, it is an underside manicure as well. My first ever and I have to say, it was so easy to create. And it almost took zero clean up and btw I didn’t use any tape or other supplies to seal off the skin.
How then.. I put some polish onto a sheet of paper and used the small flat detail brush. I tipped the brush into polish on the paper and painted the undersides of my nails with more of a tabbing strokes. I only had slight clean up on my pinky and ring finger.
What do you think, did I succeed? I will try this again, when I get longer nails.
I’ll have another Halloween design up tonight or tomorrow morning – that one will be slightly disgusting :P. And I’m still working on the new blog layout themes, some stuff need tweaking. Enjoy your weekend girls and ofc have fun! Till my next post 😉
