Today, I have a boo-tiful no-water-marble-turned swirly ghosts mani to show you! This is straight up a Robin Moses design. I just did it in polish instead of acrylic, and with much less talent than she has.
Still, this is the first even remotely successful needle drag marble I've ever done, so let's celebrate!
I painted the nail with OPI Glints of Glinda, and then, while the second coat was still wet, dropped little bits of Revlon Sequin (silver), Sally Hansen Raisin The Bar (metallic pink), and Finger Paints Black Expressionism (black) and Paper Mache (white) on one nail at a time. I ran a small nail art brush through the drops of polish to create the swirls, then pulled the excess polish off my finger the way Robin Moses taught me to.
Using a little more Paper Mache, thinned a little with polish thinner, I added the ghosties and outlined them with the black striper and added the faces. Then, I added in some of the pink glitter.
Bottle shot: OPI Glints of Glinda, Sally Hansen Raisin The Bar, Revlon Sequin, Finger Paints Black Expressionism and Paper Mache, and nail art stripers in pink glitter and black.
I think these may be the prettiest ghost nails I've ever done! Brava to Robin Moses for their conception and great tutorial. Are you more of a fan of the gory Halloween, or the pretty costumes?
