Most ladies don't wear black or very dark nails during the year. Some choose the fall and Halloween season to wear them. Since I wear them all year round, it is a bit hard for me to create 'classic Halloween' nails. But I dug deep and made these - they started as a classic design but I decided to incorporate a few colors as well.
I just love how these turned out! Especially the magical silver moon overlooking the sad tree. I did the classic black to dark grey gradient, but I didn't want to use the tombstone stamps that everyone uses nowadays. I just added some bats and scary trees that look like they are growing from the darkness.
After using the moon stamp, I was so happy to see how good the pop of color looked - I added some more to it! So I added a gothic red cross and some happy jack-o-lanterns.
WHAT I USED:
As a base, I used Essence I'm The Boss! and some Tedi Black to make the micro gradient.
Then I stamped with Essence Stamp Me! Black to create the bats and the trees, with HD01 and MoYou London Gothic 5 plate.
The stamps in the backdrop are made with the same plates and an extra BM-S205 plate.
The stamping polishes are Ya Qin Ann 21, BPS Red and Star Gazer 232.
