I know, I know. Halloween has come and gone. And I would have had this post up on Halloween or before but I’ll be honest, I’ve really been struggling with anxiety this week and being seriously stressed and overwhelmed (still am 😦 ). So blogging took a backseat (thank you, past me for scheduling a ton of posts ahead of time) while I’ve been trying to sort myself out. I’m not completely sorted out (who is these days anyway?) but I wanted to sit down and show you the manicures I’ve had on my hands over the last couple of weeks leading up to Halloween. I’ve done a blood drip manicure, a disappearing/reappearing manicure, and a Frankenstein themed manicure. A copious amount of pictures ahead 😉
Let’s start off with the thermal disappearing/reappearing manicure with Baroness X Ghastly and Polish ‘M Pennhurst. I started off with 3 coats plus top coat of Ghastly (which I’ll show you in full at a later date), used YouPolish nail vinyls/decals, and sponged Polish ‘M Pennhurst over the top.
To be honest, the ghost kinda looks like it’s shrugging in a “IDGAF” pose. 😛 Pennhurst did need 2 coats of top coat to smooth it out but it was worth it.
Next up was my blood drip mani with 2 coats of Pahlish Pianos Filled with Flames with 1 coat of Baroness X Magma over it, accompanied by 2 coats of JulieG Black Sheep. Again, I think I used YouPolish decals. (I’ll have more on this manicure in a later post.)
Not gonna lie, I’m low-key in love with how it looks with a matte top coat instead of shiny top coat. I felt like a total badass with this mani on, too.
Last is the mani I actually wore on Halloween with 2 coats of Bad Bitch Polish No Tricks (separate swatch coming soon!) and BarryM Black Multi Glitter. This is a mix of free hand and decal help. This was a fun and simple mani that I received several compliments on!
I hope you all had a good Halloween if you celebrated. 🙂 Let me know what you rocked on your nails!
