Well it seems this is a popular look this time of year! In my browsing of nail art today, many designs popped up like this. A gradient with a spooky scene. I wanted to create a scene of bats flying from the woods, across the suburbs to invade the city, or something like that!
I started with a couple of coats of Color Club “Jackie Oh!”, then sponged some paler no name pink on the tips. Then working from the middle up I sponged Color Club “Jack ‘n Jill” and “Ulterior Motive”. Finishing around the cuticle line with Chi Chi “Sophisticated Sassy”. Then I stamped with black using plate BBF 02 for the house and the bats. BM-224 for the spooky trees and plate Fun 2 for the city skyline. I love pink and black together!
If you watch the tv show The Walking Dead, you will be familiar with the fence around the jail that keeps the “walkers” out. I’ve tried to re-create that look by using this plate from BBF for the zombies, Mash-41 for the fence and Moyou plate 08 from the Biker collection for the barb wire. I started with a base of dappled grays and blues, then stamped over it with black and grays.
Have you ever noticed that I think in nearly every jail/fence scene it is overcast? I noticed this the other day and also when they kill lots of zombies, why isn’t there a massive pile of dead zombie bodies? But there is never a pile of bodies!
I thought I’d take a break from gory Halloween manis for today. Here I’ve used Savvy nail polish, on the pinky and index finger, in “Black Martini” which is a blackish polish loaded with silver glitter and the odd pieces of red in there too.
For the silver stamping I’ve used BBF plate 18 and the stud is from Born Pretty store, you can find them here. I like this, simple, elegant but at the same time a touch grungy.
