Nothing screams Halloween to me more than a good combination of orange and black. Naturally, I grabbed all the orange, black, and glitter polishes I have and started brainstorming. I knew I wanted to do an orange gradient so I chose Heat Flash by Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, In My Back Pocket by OPI, and The "It" Color by OPI, which made the perfect orange to yellow gradient. I wanted to throw in more black so I picked up Metallic 4 Life by OPI, an amazing silver glitter in a jelly black base, and opted for an accent nail. Over the gradient nails I sparingly put a layer of Clearly Spotted by Maybelline Color Show, which blended the gradient and made the glitter really pop!
When it came to the stamping I was so indecisive. I have so many Halloween plates to chose from it was hard to decide what I wanted to do. But after a long battle, I opted for a spider theme! So I stamped a creepy spider from Mash-38 and the spider web from Cheeky Jumbo Plate 6 "Happy Holidays" using Konad Special Polish in Black. And for good measure, I picked a piece of red glitter from a Christmas polish and made the spider a black widow! Eek!
I absolutely love this design and I really hope you enjoy it too! Just a little tid-bit, this was a smash at work. Many people in my line asked me where I got my nails done and were amazed to hear that I did it myself. One lady even said I was in the wrong profession and should try doing nails full time. XD A major confidence booster if I do say so myself. WHOOT WHOOT!
