Halloween gradient

I did this mani a couple weeks back. I saw this post last year and told myself I *needed* to do it for the coming season. Obviously hers are a whole lot better than my attempt!


It was such an enjoyable manicure! I had several people ask me which salon I went to to get them done. Adorable!


I used China Glaze Light as Air and Ruby Kisses Bold and the Beautiful for the gradient and freehanded the stars with yellow acrylic paint. I konaded some accents including the cat as well as a pumpkin and a bat (not shown) using plate HB28.


Thanks for looking and I hope you are all well.

  2. Stunning - you should totally be joining in with the Halloween Challenge, Monday's theme is gradient, and I wish I could think up something as gorgeous as this. I love the little kitty.
