Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! This has been a busy week for manicures & it’s not over yet. Today I’ve got the next prompt for GlamnailschalleneOct: Graveyard! For this look, I wanted to channel the look of gravestones as my background sky & then create a little landscape graveyard near my cuticles.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Duri Rejuvocate
- Top Coat: YSL Beauty Quick Dry Top Coat
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Grey Area
- Maybelline Audacious Asphalt
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod
- Essence Black is Back
- NailStuff.ca 7mm liner brush
I had this idea in my heart to create this grungy grey background, I feel like it was kind of successful? Not exactly how I pictured in my head, but I still really like it. Next time I would probably add a dark dusky purple or blue to add a bit of colour to the mix. But over all, I think this design captures the spookiness of a graveyard, & when it comes to Halloween designs that’s what is most important, am I right?
I think my dry brush background might be one of my favourite parts of this look. Instead of doing short brush strokes, I brushed the polish brush up almost the entire length of my nail. It really helped capture the haunting quality of gravestones/graveyards, which I am really excited about. I will say though, next time I would probably pull out my What’s Up Nails graveyard stencils for the gravestones.
what do you think about this grungy graveyard design? Are you already planning your Halloween nail art looks?
