Witches Brew!

Hello dolls!

Today's post is probably some of the busiest nail art I've done in a while.  While I prefer simple/clean looking nail art, I wanted to get some more practice in with acrylic paints.  And... well... I just love Halloween manis ;)

 Colors Used: KBShimmer - Eclipse, Painted Polish - Drunk on Holo, Candied Apple Polish - Starch and Lilacs, Acrylic Paints

There's a lot going on here!  Let me start with my inspiration hahaha.  I've been trying to think outside the box with my Halloween manis this year.  I want to challenge myself to try other things.  After 3 years of Frankenstein's... he needs a little rest :P

So I thought what about a bubbling cauldron?  I'm loving bubble art right now!  Then the classic Shakespearean witches chant popped into my head. "Double, double, toil and trouble.  Fire burn and cauldron bubble!"  I was sold.  A witch mani it would be!

I did this in stages because I had very limited time on my hands (ha!).  I stared with my base colors (2 coats for each), top coated and went to work.  I woke up the next day and started on my design with acrylic paint.  I need more practice with letters *sigh*.  But I do love the way the witch and cauldron came out :D

Hmmm... what other Halloween things bubble?  Lol I'm a little obsessed!

I hope you like it!  Like I said, I know it's busy but sometimes that's a good thing right?  ;)

Until next time!

  1. Love the nail with the cauldron! This was so creative.

  2. If you can't go all out with a Halloween man, when can you co all out? :) I always prefer simple looks, myself, but this is so fun! Your cauldron is particularly awesome but whatever's going on on your index finger looks rad, too :)
