13 Manicures of Halloween - Day 11
Color: Dream On (Sinful Colors)Retail Price: $1.50 (USD)
This shade is a bright fuchsia color, sure to turn heads. The most astonishing thing about this is it dries matte, yet the bottle says nothing about it being a matte shade. So, if you want a glossy finish like on my nails, you will need to apply a top coat.
The formula for this polish is surprisingly opaque, and I needed two coats to achieve bottle color. I also really liked the brush! The bristles are kind of long, so when you press the brush onto your nail, it flares out really nicely. Hardly any work at all to create a clean manicure!
I can’t believe how much I like this color, so I decided to nail art-ify it!
I used dotting tools to create the polka-dots on my ring and pinky fingers, but if you don’t own dotting tools, use the back end of a make-up brush. Create a white dot, let it dry, and create a slightly smaller brown dot within it.
To create the owl that’s on my middle finger, start by painting a fuchsia oval on about 3/4 of your nail. Then, use a toothpick, bobby pin, small dotting tool, or striper to paint on two pointy ears for the owl, and use the same tools to add on two brown wings. Create the eyes just like the polka-dots, and use a toothpick for the tiny white dot. Also use a toothpick to create the beak. For the white feathers, use a dotting tool or the back end of a make-up brush to create three white circles on the owl’s belly. Once those are dry, use the same tools to add three more circles in fuchsia, slightly above where the white dots are. You should now have three half-moon shapes that are your feathers! Always make sure you wait for nail polish to completely dry before you add more nail polish on top of it (this is especially important when you’re doing nail art). Seal in your design with your favorite top coat, and you’re good to go!
Probably not the scariest Halloween manicure, but who says Halloween can’t be cute? :)
