Nail Of The Day – Halloween Nail Art Ideas / Primark PS… 18 Strobe, Boots 17 Red & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 53 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge N – Nocturnal Creatures

Hi there! Today I’ve got another Halloween nail art idea for you. 🙂

Last year I did a bats on blood mani. I really loved that mani, and I was thinking about doing the same mani again.

However, I also wanted to use one of my newest stamping plates, so I went for a cute bats on blood mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… 18 Strobe. This is a great white polish that I really need to stock up on!

I used Boots 17 Red and a small piece of a make-up sponge for the blood effect.

The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go. I used 2 stamping plates – a random unbranded plate (small bats) and MoYou London‘s brand new Festive 53 plate (big bats) which is packed with cute images.

Oh, by the way, this mani counts towards the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. This is my interpretation of the Nocturnal Creatures challenge. 🙂

If you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link. Oh, in case you’re wondering… yes, I did purchase this stamping plate (and the other new ones) myself!

Now… how do you like this mani? I think it’s awesome. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Blood & Bats For Halloween – Featuring Essence, Revlon & Maybelline / Nail Art Challenge #23 Inspired By A Movie

bloody bats nail artHi there! Today’s post is about my Halloween 2016 mani – blood & bats.

I had the idea to do this mani when I did my Halloween Nail Ideas post earlier this month. In that post I showed you photos of a bat mani and a blood spatter mani – and back then I knew that I wanted to combine the two.

So for this mani I painted my nails with Essence The Gel Polish 33 Wild White Days (1 coat). Then I applied a few blobs of red polish – Maybelline Colorshow 349 Power Red – with (a small piece of) a make-up sponge.

I used two no-name stamping plates – M94 (Konad dupe) and A13 – and my favourite black polish, Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto, to stamp on the bats.

I think this mani turned out nicer than expected. I wasn’t sure if a sponge would be the right tool to create a bloody background for the bats – but I think it looks quite authentic. So yes, I chose the right tool for this nail art job! 🙂

I’m also including this mani in my 31 Days Nail Art Challenge as #23 Inspired By A Movie. The movie would be ‘Bats’, a shockingly bad movie featuring bloodthirsty bats (and with plenty of shockingly bad acting).

If you’re still looking for last-minute Halloween nail art inspiration, please check out all the manis I’ve done this month – they’re all Halloween-themed! I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween tomorrow. And thanks for stopping by!
