|You get a teaser photo first this week, as I have been having fun with photo effects on PicMonkey|
Remember last month when 11 of the most amazing ladies and myself did Blue Week? Well we are back again but this time round we are bring you a month of Halloween themed posts! Some of mine will be cross-posts with the Crumpet's Nail Tarts Halloween Challenge which I started last week.
The base is Darling Diva Polish Barbi Who? A bubblegum pink holographic polish I swatched for you all a few weeks ago. What y'all didn't know is that it would turn into this monstrosity the day after.
I used one of my favourite horror books as inspiration for this manicure, "Carrie" by Stephen King (they are also re-making the film which I am slightly trepidations about). So you get gory/slasher Barbie nails. The blood is actually Barry M Raspberry and Bright Red which I splattered on the nail and added a couple of strategic dollops with a dotting tool. My accent "slasher nail!" is Barry M Black.
Simple Eh? I definitely wouldn't wear this out on a normal day but it was fun to do. I do think the blood and gore detracts a bit from the holo goodness of this polish, but really if you are worried about that then I doubt you would be sporting a manicure like this.What do you think?
