Hello ladies! Halloween is only two days away! Our weekend was super spooky: we did two costume parties, saw one of my clients play a Monster Mash show with his surf band, did some costume bowling, visited the pumpkin patch, and watched the Giants sweep Detroit in the World Series! I need a day off to rest up from my day off lol!
Today's theme is Graveyards! I'm one of those weird people who thinks graveyards are just gorgeous. I love taking walks through cemeteries and reading all the headstones and peering in mausoleums. It's so peaceful and relaxing. BTW, do you know what the difference between a graveyard and a cemetery is? A graveyard is attached to a church, and a cemetery stands alone. Just a little useless trivia.
As always, this design looked soooooo much better in my head!
This is two coats of China Glaze Spontaneous, a dusky purple. I wanted to give a twilighty effect, like the sky is caught in the limbo between light and darkness. For the design, I used Finger Paints Nail Art in Ch-ART-coal. I used all black to silhouette the stones against the sky. The blobs and scratches in the sky are supposed to be tree branches and birds. :/ On my thumb I tried to do a cemetery gate and crescent moon.
I actually liked the effect of this design. It had a still, somber vibe. Sorry about the stained fingertips... I had just removed a navy blue polish and glitter and apparently one layer of base coat was insufficient lol!
Coming tomorrow: Trick or Treat!
Happy Monday! xoxo Kris
