Mummy Attack!

This is my favorite Halloween mani yet. It is cool, frightening, and not terribly bloody. Also, it GLOWS. IN THE DARK. How awesome is that?

The base for this mani is the best glow in the dark polish ever, Dayglow by Serum No5. Day glow really does glow. I kept making little tents out of my hand to stare at the glowing wonderfulness! The polish (unfortunately) takes 3 thin coats to be opaque, dries very slowly, and dries to a somewhat matte finish. However, the last two issues are taken care of with quick dry top coat!

I hand-painted on lots of thick black lines (mummies), the outline of a ghost, and complicated teeth. This mani took over an hour and a half to put together (mostly due to all the darn straight lines) but WOW was it worth it! I must give credit to my boyfriend though…he suggested vampire when I couldn’t figure out what to do with my thumb. That might be my favorite finger!

It was a little hard to fall asleep at night with these creepy nails staring back at me in the darkness of my room…

  1. Love them!
    My fav is the thumb, but these funny mummies and the little ghost, so darn cute ! : D
    I’m rocking pumpkins for Halloween, because I ended up deciding in favour of bright orange and carved smiles instead of an elaborate idea that had to do with history of Samhein and the Celts.
    But now I’m sporting a jelly bat sandwich on my accent, too. : )

  2. These are great! My glow in the dark mummies looked more like rabid zebra in super extreme close-up. I like these much better!

    • hahahahahahahaha! Rabid zebra 😀 might be the best line I’ve heard all week. It just takes practice (and the ability to draw straight lines SLOWLY)
