Halloween skittles manicure

This week at work has been one of the worst I've ever had. Constant fights, tantrums, a lack of doctors, crazy workload.. It's full moon so everyone is going bat crazy! I needed to relax so I decided to take some time out and do a Halloween skittles mani. I'm loving doing different designs on each nail, it's a lot of fun plus I get to try some of my many untrieds!

My WAH nail pic =p

I wish I could spare more time so I could do more full manicures with the designs. I got inspiration for these designs from some of the great blogs I follow! I think my left hand turned out really well but my right hand was pretty much a fail because nothing I wanted actually turned out properly. My middle finger was supposed to be candy corn but my polishes would not cooperate! So I gave up and just used trusty Grape Pop and flakies instead.


Left hand:
Thumb: 2 coats of Color Club Wild at Heart with freehanded spider web using Kiss nail art striper in white.

Index: 2 coats of Sinful Colors Mint Apple as base, BYS Black Satin for the hair, CM nail art pen and striper in white and black for eyes and Kiss nail art striper in black for the mouth.

Middle finger: 2 coats of Essence Undead with Pa witch nail sticker.

Ring finger: 2 coats of Sinful Colors Cloud 9 with pumpkin design from Konad plate m13 using Konad special polish in black.

Pinky: Rimmel I love lasting finish in Double Decker Red with spider design from Bundle Monster plate BM13 using Konad Princess polish in Black pearl.


Right hand:
Pinky: 2 coats of Sinful Colors Big Daddy and 1 coat of BYS Cracked polish in black.

Ring finger: 2 coats of of The Face Shop OR202 with bat design from Bundle Monster plate BM13 using Konad Special polish in black.

Middle finger: 2 coats of China Glaze Grape Pop and 2 coats of Nubar 2010.

Index finger: 1 coat of BYS Black Satin with skull design from Konad plate m13 using China Glaze Devotion.

Thumb: 2 coats of Essence Undead, Kiss nail art striper in black for vertical stripes and spider design from Bundle Monster plate BM13 using China Glaze Devotion.

WHEW! I'm knackered now. Which design do you like the best? I'll be MIA for the next few days as my exam for my final subject is being released tomorrow so I'll be attempting to steer clear of browsing blogs and the net until it's due on Wednesday. Here's hoping x) Thanks for looking!

My Polished Pink for October giveaway ends in 2 days so don't forget to enter here!

  8. I totally did a skittles for halloween too! Haven't posted it yet though! I love them!

    Love the Grape Pop with Nubar on top. :) And I haven't used my bat images yet, but those look so good. Better than I would imagine from looking at the plate. :)

  16. @mistresszombie: Thank you for your sweet comment =) I'm so happy you like it! I labelled it as a skittles mani because I used different colours on each nail but that's awesome =D

    @Thriszha: Thank you hun!

    @Jess: You're making me blush Jess! You are too kind =) I did spend a bit of time on this mani. Time that should have been spent studying!

  17. @Katrina: Awww thank you Katrina! You flatter me =D

    @Shiny!: I got wonderful ideas from the awesome blogs I read. Halloween is great for doing nail art I think!

    @AnnKiins: The BYS crack polish can be a bit temperamental sometimes, you have to get the timing for applying it exactly right. I like the subtle crack though! Thanks for the luck! I'll need it o_O

  18. @Samantha: Thank you Samantha! I have to agree with you, Halloween manis are just so much fun to do and look at!

    @Abby: Your manis are cute, what are you talking about! I look forward to seeing your Halloween mani =) I only posted mine this early because I don't have time in the next few days to do it because of uni.

    @JQ: Yay for Halloween skittles!! Grape Pop and flakies combo is fail safe for me because it doesn't take long and always looks fab. I wanted to try out the bat image from my Coraline Konad plate too but ran out of space =p

  19. @ipehishere: I'm glad you like it! I think I may wear orange and black even when it's not Halloween, it's a great combo!

    @Bev: Awwwww thank you Bev! I wish I was living in the States and could really get into the festivities =p

    @Lora: Thanks Lora!! I hope you can find some time this weekend too to do a Halloween mani too! It's SO much fun.

  20. @chocolatesuze: Awww thank you so much Susan! All it takes is a little patience and some time. I loved your rainbow nails in your post today!

    @Minolah: =D thanks!!

    @Nikki: Thank you Nikki! The frankenstein is my favourite too. Next year I'm doing a whole frankenstein mani for sure!

  21. @Alice: You are very kind Alice! I'm so glad you like it =D

    @*~ JuLiAnnE ~*: Thanks!

    @Monika: It took me about an hour and a half..? It wouldn't have taken so long if it hadn't been for my silly middle finger on my right hand! The pumpkin is my 2nd favourite hehe. Orange and black just go so well together!
    Thanks for wishing me luck!

  22. Thanks! I was referring to my Halloween mani, not my manis in general ;) You could have scheduled your post to be published only on Sunday, that's what I did. Good luck on your exam (:

    PS: You call an hour and a half "long"? :O

  23. Uwaaaaaa, I love it <3
    Such a cute Halloween mani with so many elements.
    I love all the designs on the fingers but I think my favourite has to be the spiderweb one ^_^
    Also grape pop + flakies = awesomeness.

  24. Really loving these designs! So creative. My favourite is the purple with a spider web

    Terri, xoxo

  25. Sooo cute. The Frankenstein is definitely my favourite :>

  26. You are so creative! Your skittles manis always look so well thought out and cohesive. I was just going to do a simple Halloween design (even though we don't really celebrate here in Oz, do we?!) but you've inspired me to try out a mani like this.

    I think my favourite designs are the spider web, the pumpkin and the frankenstein.

    Good luck with your studies!

  27. This is so freaking awesome 'Chelle. Your designs are so wonderful, creative and cute. <3 you!

  28. Hey!

    I've awarded you an award on my blog

    Terri, xoxo

  29. Wow you are so creative!

    XOXO Melanie

  30. love this mani, what a great work you did !!

  31. @Abby: Ahhh ok I misunderstood! I could have scheduled it but I thought I would just post it =p
    I don't have much time to do manis so yeah an hour and a half is long for me!

    @Christina: Thank you my dear! I wish I had more time to do more Halloween manis, they are so much fun! I think purple + flakies is one of my favourite manis =D

    @Terri: Thank you Terri! I'm glad you like them and they weren't very difficult to do either which is great.

    @Angela: I love the Frankenstein too! And it was loads of fun doing it too!

  32. @Danielle: It's such a shame we don't celebrate Halloween down here! I hope you tried out something similar yourself on the day =)

    @Alice: Thanks Alice! I can't take credit for all the designs though but they just look so nice together!
