Gone Batty!

  Here’s another Halloween design you can do- I promise this one is a lot less steps! 😄

Now hopefully you all liked that this one was much shorter. If you don’t have a crackle polish you can always fake it with a plain black polish by dabbing square-ish shapes instead. If you have a plain black stripper this effects comes out even better.

Items Used:

  • Orange: Sinful Colors “Summer Peach”
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Black Crackle: China Glaze “Black Mesh”
  • Yellow: Sinful Colors “Morning Breath”

Here is a picture with different color variations. The eyes streaked a little bit due to using cheaper topcoat! I’m trying to save my more expensive stuff for my own nails! ;D The silver crackle was painted on from left to right & also from right to left!

Jeepers Creepers!

In the spirit of Halloween and everything spooky and fun, I came up with this eye popping design. 😄 Apparently I like puns.

♫♪ Jeepers creepers! Where’d you get those peepers? Jeepers creepers where’d you get those eyes?♪♫ Maybe I’m just old, but does anyone else remember that song? I heard it in an old black and white cartoon. And I don’t think it was Casper either…. Or was it?

Also if anyone is wondering about the cookie- it’s my famous “Less Chocolate Chips, Chocolate Chip Cookies”. I make them this way because as much as I like chocolate chip cookies- I really don’t like to bite into my cookie and see a center filled with chocolate. I’m weird, I know.

So anyways onto instructions for this design. Which happens to be my first video tutorial!!!!!! 😄

Just to add into the video a little bit- for the pupil you could make a slit pupil like a cat or snake! 😀

List of Items Used:

  • White Nail Polish: OPI “Alpine Snow”
  • Wet n’ Wild Fantasy Makers Glow-in-the-dark polish
  • Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
  • Acrylic Paints:
    • Black: Folk Art “Pure Black”
    • Navy: Folk Art “Navy”
    • Light Blue: Jo Ann’s Craft Essentials “Baby Blue”

Sorry I didn’t get a better picture of the brushes. They’re nothing special, just cheap brushes I got from Jo Ann’s. You can use whatever sizes you feel comfortable with.
