Eyes in the Dark

As soon as I saw Chalkboard Nails’ spooky eye nails, I knew I had to save them and try them for Halloween! Honestly, it is truly sad how much better hers are than mine! But this is my off-hand and I did try. I like them anyway :-p


I will say, this was my first time ever using acrylics on my nail, to try and achieve the halo around the candle…it didn’t quite work, mostly because I don’t think I thinned the acrylic enough! And maybe it was the wrong type of acrylic? It didn’t want to dissolve, just fell into chunks in the water. Oh well! The effect is still there, its just faint. I think I’ll try it again at some point.

~ Yellow: WOW – #301
~ Light orange: Maybelline – Bleached in Peach
~ Orange: Zoya – Thandie
~ Red: Pure Ice – Siren
~ White: Salon Perfect – Sugar Cube
~ Grey: WOW – #333


These nails took longer than I anticipated, mostly because drawing tiny eyes is hard! I had to correct a lot of my eyes with black polish, and then go and re-correct the corrections. So, my nails aren’t exactly as smooth as I would like, but the matte top coat helps to hide that :-p


Hope you enjoyed! More Halloween nail art tomorrow 🙂
