All Stitched Up

EDIT: If this shows up in the wrong place then Blogger screwed up. It's supposed to be posted on Oct 30, 2011.

You didn't think I'd neglect to post at least one Halloween mani did you? Halloween is my favorite holiday, edging out Christmas by a narrow margin, I couldn't possibly neglect it here on my blog!

The mani I'm posting about today is one I'm very proud of. I admit though that it wasn't entirely my own idea. I was inspired by I'm feeling Nail-Venturous' Funky Frankenstein French mani, though I did add my own twist to it. So, to whet your appetite here are the polishes I used in my design:

I used Sally Hansen Green Tea as an all-over base, then used tape to cover what I wanted to keep that color. Each hand had one finger each painted with the following polishes: Nina Ultra Pro Burnished Bronze, Essie Sexy Divide, Essie Sole Mate, Zoya Paz, and Sally Girl #812156. Then I applied two coats of China Glaze Ghoulish Glow and did the stitches in Sinful Colors What's Your Name over the top.

Please excuse the bandage, I sliced my thumb open at school while cleaning my scissors ^^;

And the best part is yet to come!

So, you know how I said I put two coats of Ghoulish Glow on there? Well I decided to try getting photos of the glow in the dark effect . . . and I actually succeeded!

I love love love how the glow is brighter over the Green Tea but still visible over the other colors! I'd love to see what all of you have been putting on your nails for Halloween!
