Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween everyone!! Halloween is my favorite holiday and I have a few pics of some of my Halloween manis from the past week.

First, I wore OPI Glow-Ink the Dark over Rescue Beauty Lounge Underwear to help with opacity. Unfortunately, Underwear and I did NOT get along so this mani is kinda messy. Also, I smudged the corner of my thumbnail. Sigh.

This is 1 coat of Underwear and 3 coats of Glow-Ink the Dark.

Closeup on skull decal.

And this is my lame attempt at showing how well it glows. Despite this terrible picture, I promise that it really does glow like crazy!!

Next up is China Glaze Fortune Teller, which you guys have already seen a million times. This is 1 coat of FT over 1 coat of Illamasqua Boosh.

After a couple days I mattified it using Essie Matte About You.

And now my current, and favorite, Halloween NOTD, Cover Girl Crackle in Boo (1 coat) over Misa Speed of Life (2 coats).

With flash.

And just for fun, here are the 2 pumpkins my husband and I carved last night. Mine is the cat and his is the skull.

Thanks for reading and Happy Halloween!!!

I must have done my Crackle polish wrong -- I got all these tiny gross cracks and not the nice big ones like you have there.

That crackle is awesome, is there somewhere online I can get it from?? Would you do a detailed tutorial using the crackle polish as well?? Thanks =)

Thanks everyone!!

I received this CoverGirl Crackle in a swap on Makeup Alley but they pop up on ebay now and then (just search Cover Girl Crackle). There is a blue one, a white one, a black one (mine), and an orange one, as far as I know.

As for application, it's actually really simple. Crackle needs to be applied on wet polish, not dry, so I applied it immediately after I did the second coat of the orange. Do a thick coat, since the thicker the coat the better it crackles.

I'd be happy to post a detailed tutorial in the future. :)

Love your manicures! Of course the crackle one is the best.
