For these Halloween nails I wanted to do a new take on an old vampire manicure of mine. I really liked the concept of the original design, but the execution is a bit laughable. It's really funny looking back at those nails because I remember being so insanely proud of them at the time. I love my recreation now, but who knows, maybe I'll be embarrassed to look at these too in another four years.

Today I have a punny Halloween manicure. While I was thinking up ideas I couldn't get "boo-tiful" out of my head for some reason, so I decided to paint some blushing ghosts to go along with the pun. In the end this was really just an excuse for me to paint some cute ghosts again. The gradient is Xtreme Wear Flirt, China Glaze Nice Caboose!, China Glaze Giver's Theme, and Xtreme Wear Pinch Of Punch.

Today's Halloween nail art is a spooky scary skeleton across my nails. I started running out of room towards the bottom, so he doesn't really have feet and his legs are pretty stumpy. This took me under an hour to do from start to finish, which is incredibly rare for me with a full design like this. The base is China Glaze Haunting.

Here's my first "spooky" Halloween manicure of the year, a bunch of cute little skulls on a beautiful gradient. The polishes for the gradient are Xteme Wear Painted Lady, China Glaze Mix And Mingle, China Glaze Let's Jam, Color Club Diggin' The Dancing Queen, and Color Club Hot Hot Hot Pants.

I'm not exactly sure where my head was at with this one, and I ended up making a skittle manicure that doesn't really go together at all. I really like both floral nails, but they would have been better in a different manicure I think. The red base is Revlon Cherries In The Snow, I think pretty much everything else was a mixture of polishes.

I've been super into gradients recently, so when a friend suggested this idea to me I had to do it. For the gradient I used China Glaze Tart-y for the Party, Color Club Diggin' The Dancing Queen, Color Club Hot Hot Hot Pants, Zoya Cole, and Orly Lemonade.

I initially had some glitter on my outer fingers, but I didn't think it fit well with the lacey design, so I replaced it with the quatrefoil. The darker pink is China Glaze Dune Our Thing, and the light pink is China Glaze Fresh Prince-ss.

Today I have this freehand painted cube illusion. It's not perfect, but I think the illusion does kind of come through a bit. For the gradient I used Zoya Tiana, Xteme Wear Perfect Pear-ing, China Glaze Too Yacht To Handle, and China Glaze Wait N' Sea.
