Monday Blues: Creepy Eyes

Hello my lovelies! Happy Halloween! I don't usually celebrate this holiday since there's no real tradition for it in my country. Nobody goes trick-or-treating here, so there's no point in Halloween without candy. But I was in the mood to do some themed nails this year because I haven't done any in ages. I then realized that I have very few Halloween stamping plates, so I didn't have many options. I finally got inspired by the immensely talented Ohmygoshpolish to freehand some creepy eyes. Of course mine aren't as cool as her's because she used a magnetic polish but I still think they came out ok.

I started with a grey toned blue base that I created using a stamper. I finally found a proper name for this kind of manicure: stamping marble. People also call it smoosh or squishy manicure but I think stamping marble is much better. I used 3 polishes: Eyeko Rain, Golden Rose Rich Color 15 (I used this one for a Halloween manicure 3 years ago as well) and Revlon Surf.

On most of the nails I stamped a swiderweb image from plate 07 Labyrinth from Moyra using Mundo de Unas White. On the two middle nails I freehanded the eyes using China Glaze Awaken and Liquid Leather. I haven't freehanded something on my nails in a long time and I sort of missed it. These were very easy to do and it literally took me 5 minutes to do them.

I had a lot of fun wearing these nails for the past week. I really hope you enjoy them too. I also hope that you'll all have a happy and safe Halloween! Don't forget to check out the rest of this month's Monday Blues by clicking the links below!

Have a great week!
