Nail Polish of the Day #3 - Halloween Nails!

For some reason this year I'm feeling super festive about Halloween. Which is weird b/c I don't even have a Halloween party to go to. But I'm not going to fight it! I'm going to dress up my nails even if I can't dress myself up. Here are my Halloween nails using the Konad stamping kit. I actually purchased knock-off Konad plates and stampers from Bundle Monster on Amazon, which is much cheaper than buying directly from Konad. 

The base black color is Jesse's Girl "Blackout" which is a fabulous black. It's really opaque and dries quickly. I tried using Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics polish in "Tarred" at first, but that stuff does not dry! Anyway, I used 2 coats of "Blackout" and on the ring finger I used Wet n' Wild Fastdry in "Orange", which has a nice glitter to it. That actually took 3 coats b/c it's pretty sheer. I used my normal base coat underneath all of that, too. After stamping a pumpkin, witch hat, skull, and spiderweb, I sealed everything up with a top coat of Seche Vite. 

Have a spooktacular Halloween!
