A Halloween manicure.... sort of

     All month I have been trying to come up with clever ideas for Halloween manicures. It's really hard to do something that hasn't been done before. So when I got my Archivers add in the mall a few weeks ago I was thrilled. It had a really cute card on the front page and my immediate reactions was that it would make for a great manicure. Then came the hard part. Trying to figure out how to translate it to my nails.

     Look at how cute that card is. And while this is in no way my original idea, I have yet to see a manicure like this before. And I still haven't. After 3 weeks of thinking without much progress on how to go about the recreation, I just jumped right in and gave it a go.

     I used Orly's Iron Butterfly for my base. Milani White on the Spot and Zoya Thandie were used to recreate the witches hat. Trying to make the little zigzags with my nail brush turned out to be impossible for me so I switched to my smallest dotting tool. Having a steady hand is not my strong suit and the zig zags are not as crisp as I would like.

     This manicure turned out to be extremely challenging for me and in my opinion was a fail. However, it was a great learning experience and maybe next time the results will be something I'm happy with.
