♥ Some halloween Fails - Candy Corn and Ghosts ♥



This looks really textured and I think thats what I didn't like about it. The white polish I sponged on the tips dried waaaaaaaaaaay too fast! I will definitely do another candy corn mani; but I will be using nail tip guides to get a cleaner crisper line. I usually love the sponge mani's that I do. But this one......




N.Y.C. Spring Street, Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow, and Billie White.



Please ignore my pinky. When working with the dotting tool, do not let the polish sit out too long - as it starts to dry it will get gloppy and stringy. This dotting tool is good for making free-form shapes, I will definitely implement it for other shapes besides single dots in the future. I think these Ghosts are cute, but all I see is the PAC-MAN ghosts.... not Halloween ghosts. I think that if I traced around my nails, along the sides and cuticles, they would look more ghost like. Back to the drawing board!


 This was 2 coats of Billie White with 1 coat of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat. I actually wore just plain white for the morning, and then tried out this ghost look.  Of course I had to add crystals! (actually these are the plastic crystals form the Dollar-Rama)


 Nailene TC, Wet n' Wild Black, Billie French White

I cut out thin tip guides with these patterned scissors

Until you reminded us that the second mani was ghosts, I totally thought they were Pandas. lol

^^ LMAO!! I see the pandas.


But I like the ghosties. They look so adorably tortured.

Personally, I love the sponged look on the candy corns, but to each their own I suppose. hehe. I would love to see how the guides look for the second time around.

And I love the panda ghosts hehe
