There be Ghosts in the Other Realm #FallingForNailArt
It's getting spooky all up in here. Today's mani is pretty much a copy of a mani done by Nearly Natural Nails. I was looking at Pinterest, and my hubby spotted this one and just loved it. Well, how can I not at least try it then?
I started with a new-to-me polish with a well-known name. This year, Seche - the maker of the beloved Seche Vite topcoat - came out with colors! This deep, dark, metallic eggplant is called Aristocrat. Which, of course, only makes me think of the joke.
For my ghosts, I had to use a white holo. I thought Lacquer Lust Eternal Bliss would fit the bill. At one/1.5 coats, it's still translucent in some parts over the dark purple, giving it an ethereal look.
For the ghostly facial features, I went with Cult Nails Fetish, that gorgeous waxy black. I like the play in textures between the metallic purple, the translucent holo white, and the matte black. Makes me feel all artsy-fartsy.
Scary? I might be.

I'm loving all the ghostly manis this season! If you have one you'd like to share, please post on my wall! I'd love to see it.
