I finally was able to upload pics into Blogger, so I can show you what should have been my post of this morning. As a new idea for a Halloween manicure (see what I did for me and Minnie here and here, and those from my friend Barbara here and here), I had a double inspiration: Colette first with her crazy goggly-eyed mummies, and Gery, the China Glaze shipping guy, with his glow-in-the-dark mummy (if you don't know Gery-the-shipping-guy and his amazing talent, check out China Glaze's FB page). So I wanted to try and associate the two ideas: do a water-marble, then apply glow-in-the-dark top-coat and draw the mask, so that it would look like a ghost in the dark.
After trying several times, I finally found the good combo for the marble: I primed my nails with one coat of white polish, and then marbled Orly Nite Owl, OPI My Private Jet brown version, and UD Love Train (*sigh* I miss my longer nails...). One coat of Chine Glaze Ghoulish Glow, and then a black stripe, two drops of white and Ghoulish Glow and two final dots of black for the eyes. Top-coat to finish and there you go. I took pictures of my pointer on Friday night, after finding my marbling combo, thinking I would do the other fingers during the week-end. But on Saturday, I was helping some friends to move out, and I broke several nails, so they ended being too short to marble on and I was left with only this pic to show you!
And now, take out your pointy hats, paint your cats black and get ready to trick-or-treat "'til your neighbour's gonna die of fright".
Pumpkin pics found on the internet, I do not own them in any way.
