October Nail Art Challenge Day 2: Ghosts

Hey guys!

Welcome to day 2 of the October Nail Art Challenge! Today’s theme is ghosts. I kept the black gradient that I did for day 1 and added some ghosts on top, and this is the result.

On top of what I used for day 1 I used the following:

  • Sinful Colors “Snow Me White”
  • essence gel top coat
  • Butter London Matte Finish Topcoat
  • Nail art brushes and dotting tools

I used brush nยฐ 9 to write BOO on my ring finger and brush nยฐ 10 to paint the ghosts, all using Sinful Colors “Snow Me White”. I used the small tip of the yellow dotter to do the white eyes on my index and the small tip of the blue dotter for the black dots inside the eyes, plus the eyes and mouth on the ghosts (using Sinful Colors “Black on Black”). I used a clear polish to seal in my ring finger, but it created streaks on the BOO so I used essence gel top coat on the other fingers and that one worked great at not streaking. The trick is to apply a really thick layer and only brush down 1-2 times. I then finished it off with a layer of Butter London Matte Finish Topcoat to give it a matte look.

I’m really happy with how these turned out! My husband said the ghost on my pinky looks like a ghost from Pac Man and I agree! What do you think?

Come back tomorrow for day 3, and check out the other nail art creations below!

  • Well this was not your week with top coat it seems! these are adorable though, I love the little eyeballs, I was actually planning something similar but we’ll see if I do it today because clearly I am way ahead on this whole nail art thing ๐Ÿ˜‰ if I manage a second day I’ll be thrilled. also your blog has the easter bunnies recommended in the ‘related’ bit and the bunnies are SOOOO CUTE!

    • Yeah I’m learning lots about top coats this week, hehe!
      Thank you Zoรซ! I still have them on… I need to work on tomorrow’s theme though. But they chipped last night so I want to take them off now (as opposed to not wanting to before).
      I see my zombie rabbits too, LOL!!!

  • These are so cute. I actually like how the boo is slightly smeared as it fits the ghosts.

    • Thank you Sarah! ๐Ÿ™‚ I agree with you about the streaks and I meant to mention that in my post, but completely forgot when I was writing it.

  • Awwww so cute! I love the little ghost peeking around the corner of your nail!
