The 13 Manicures of Halloween: Round 5

The 13 Manicures of Halloween
Just a couple last minute entries.  I will introduce you to the zombie judges and reveal the prize for one lucky contestant tomorrow.  The winner will be announced on Tuesday.  The zombies have a prior engagement on Halloween.  Something about a dinner with some trick or treaters.  Or were they dining on trick or treaters?

On to the entries…


Kristen at The Manicured Monkey said, “I feel like I've been so uncreative lately when it's come to Halloween manis, so here is one I did on a whim. I was however inspired by Jen from Jen's Painted Tips. See, this whole time looking at my Bundle Monster 2 plates, I always thought this ghost image was a snail or something.... then Jen used it and said "Oh hey, it's a ghost!". I then proceeded to use it in this mani and another one I'll show you LOL. Thanks Jen for the different perspective! OK, back to the mani. I came home from Hawaii to a Secret Pumpkin package from Jeanie at Midnight Manicures and it included the cute tombstone Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers polish in Black Magic! This polish is a black creme that has green, orange and yellow micro glitter. I think it may be a dupe for Blackmail, so I'll have to compare the two.  Anyways, I did 2 coats then took a fan nail art brush and dabbed Nova from China Glaze on the tip and up one side. Nova is a chunky hex and square holo silver glitter. Then I used Konad special white polish and stamped the ghost! There is some overlap with the glitter and the ghost but it was still a stellar mani, may end up wearing this on Halloween!”

Midnight Spook

Irena said, “Even though I am a beginner at nail art I decided to give it a try, because I love the theme and all the different interpretations! I decided to call my manicure Midnight Spook and I tried to show on each on my nails a face of Halloween; some are funny, some are scary, and everything, except for the yellow witch , is free-handed.  I'm not sure I can remember all the polishes I painted with, but from what I recall, I used:
a nude from Sinfull Colors, Rimmel Lasting Finish- Go Cobalt; Seventeen 279; Sephora- It-girl; Bourjois-Lime Catwalk; Bourjois- Jaune trendy; Golden Rse- 83; a deep blue from Miss Sporty, Essence- 66 Most Wanted and a Konad Nail Art Pen.  I enjoyed doing this mani and I really hope you will like it.”

A big thank you to everyone who entered!  Stay tuned to meet the judges and see the prize!
