HPB October Halloween Mani Link-Up

Hi everyone!

Today I have another Halloween post to share with you, but this one is a little different. I am collaborating with a lot of other bloggers to bring you Halloween-themed posts today. I am part of a Facebook group called Hobby Polish Bloggers. It’s a group for anyone who blogs about nails or polish as a hobby, like me, to ask each other questions, share ideas, get advice, and so on. It’s not for showing pictures of nail art but rather for discussing blogging, polish, and nail art. It can be very helpful for anyone who is blogging in this area and if you have a blog too, I highly recommend you check out the group. We will be doing monthly link-ups and this month’s theme is Halloween. Painted Fingertips | Bats and tree silhouettes - Halloween nail artToday I have created some simple but striking silhouetted bats and trees. I started off with a base of Essence Flashy Pumpkin. I then freehanded French tips for the ground, as well as the bats and the trees, using China Glaze Bump in the Night. It was as easy as that – just two polishes, no special tools required (except for a smaller brush), and the result is some striking and very cool Halloween nail art!

    I love the texture! Looks really nice. And you say “as easy as that” but I don’t think I could have done those bats and trees!

      Thank you! I’m sure you could have, all it takes is a small brush and maybe a practice try on a piece of paper if you need it 🙂
