#clairestelle8halloween, Black Cats. Halloween Nails

This look I created a while back for #clairestelle8halloween but couldn't post due to some other business. I loved this one though. My base is OPI Eurso Euro, I then added my chevron stamping and my details in acrylic paint.

My kitty definitely turned out creepy, and maybe a little fat! I also really like my floral nails.

Cheers all,

Oct 18 Clairestelle8 Halloween Bats Nail Art

So I had a massively low break on my swatch hand and decided to give it a bit of time to grow out. I have a few more looks I've pre-done for #clairestrlle8halloween, but I created this bat prompt look on a tip. I've never actually done art on a tip before, it was fun! I created a gradient using orange acrylic paint over OPI Schnapps Out Of It. I then mixed a nice coordinating brown shade for the background trees. Once dry I uadded the front black tree trunks to give a depth to my background. Once I was happy I added my bat in acrylic paint on top.

I matted it out and totally loved this finished piece.

Cheers all,

Pumpkins for #clairestelle8halloween. My Indie Polish, The GreatPumpkin.

These were my Pumpkin nails for #clairestelle8halloween on a great polish I had to pick up recently from My Indie Polish. My leaves and pumpkin design were all acrylic paint.

On to the polish, this is two coats of the best thermal ever! This creamy off white/orange shimmer is amazing. Totally great formula and packed with shimmer. I couldn't get over th colour combo when I saw it go on pre-order and had to have it. 

I wasn't disappointed and love this polish.

Cheers all,

Oct 15 Clairestelle8 Skulls.

Today's look is for #clairestelle8halloween and the prompt Skulls. I wanted to go a little off the rails with the colours I chose, and I went with some blues. I Used a base of OPI Sky's The Limit and stamped a rose pattern from BM-618 over top in Nabi Sky. I then added the skulls from Hehe-046 in white and used parts of a tribal design to add just portions of lines.

Once dry, I added black acrylic dots into the eye wholes of each skull to make them feel a little darker. What do you think of my off the wall skulls on roses design?

Cheers all,

Digital Dozen Does Vampy, Thursday

Today's Digital Dozen Does Vampy is a dark and distressed fall look using one of my favourite fall images BM-H11 on a background of OPI Schnapps Out Of It distressed with black acrylic paint. For my stamping I used Essie Penny Talk.

That's all she wrote! I loved this one!
