October Tri-Polish Challenge Part 4: Halloween

Hello ladies!

This is the fourth and final manicure for this month’s tri-polish challenge using orange, yellow and green. Halloween isn’t really a ‘thing’ here in South Africa, but for those of you that it’s a bigger deal for, Happy Halloween! And enjoy my Halloween-y nails!sponged essence colour & go flashy pumpkin, wanna be your sunshine, and we rock the green, stamped with tip top nail chic armourplate and essence stamp me! black with plate QA26

I see that my lighting was a bit suspect for these photos, but I have to say, I ended up loving these nails a lot more than I thought I would! I started with a base of Essence Colour & Go Wanna Be Your Sunshine then using a sponge, I randomly dabbed on Essence Colour & Go Flashy Pumpkin and We Rock the Green, a lot like you would for galaxy nails. Where they got a bit too dark a dabbed on a little more Wanna Be Your Sunshine. On its own this background looked a bit muddy and messy, but it was perfect for this nail art!sponged essence colour & go flashy pumpkin, wanna be your sunshine, and we rock the green, stamped with tip top nail chic armourplate and essence stamp me! black with plate QA26Then I stamped! I’ve tried 3 of my new stamping plates from the Born Pretty Store so far, and I am IN LOVE with them. The images transfer so well, I’m not sure if I am finally getting the hang of stamping or if they’re just engraved better than my Bundle Monster ones – perhaps a combination. I’ve heard that some of the Born Pretty plates are better than others, but so far I am happy. sponged essence colour & go flashy pumpkin, wanna be your sunshine, and we rock the green, stamped with tip top nail chic armourplate and essence stamp me! black with plate QA26All the stamped images come from plate QA26. I first stamped the spider webs using Tip Top Nail Chic Armourplate, then added the bats and the spider using Essence Stamp me! Black. sponged essence colour & go flashy pumpkin, wanna be your sunshine, and we rock the green, stamped with tip top nail chic armourplate and essence stamp me! black with plate QA26I was becoming a little disillusioned with stamping, but now I am back on the bandwagon!

    I like them! Cute colour combo!
    I love my BPS stamps too, that plate with the witch and bats, stamps really well, others I’ve tried too, I was worried about that.

      Thank you!
      Yeah I heard that one of the others I got (Which I haven’t had a chance to test yet) gave some other people trouble, but so far I am loooving them. If I can actually get a stamp to reach the edges of my nails then I am overjoyed.
