Frightful Fingers

Being that I’m crazy over all things pertaining to any holiday, I can’t resist a seasonal mani. While it was hard to stray from simply an orange and black paint job, I added silver for the sheer gaudiness of it all.

The witch is in.

To achieve this monstrous mani, I started by applying one swipe of Seche Base Coat and followed with two silver coats of DS Radiance by OPI. Once that dried for a few minutes, I topped my nails off with a heavy stripe of Crushed by Sally Hansen. Finishing the look with a thin strip of Black Sketch by Milani followed by my all time fave Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Trio for talons.

Scary with skulls.

Seriously. Beware.

Now to put my nail polish thinking cap on for THE week of Halloween…

Bear by the Mani-tail

So this manicure won’t truly help you catch a bear but I did find that my kit cat Teddy Bear’s tail made for a nice contrast in showing off my latest creation…

Whatever you do, don’t pull.

After applying a base coat, I covered my nails with a swipe of Sally Hansen’s White On.  Once semi-dry, I tipped the ends of my claws in OPI’s DS Radiance (this is apparently considered a ‘designer’ polish and runs about $11 – mine was a gift. So any silver will do!) and used Milani Nail Art in Black Sketch to complete the mini masterpiece.  The grand finale was a coat of Seche Vite’s Dry Fast Top Nail Coat (best ever in my amateur book) to make this mani last almost a week.

Triple Threat

Then I enjoyed using my painted talons as a matching accessory to my wine glasses.

Perfect mates, yes?
