Monday Manicure : Halloween Inspired Nails








This is my attempt at 'marbled nails'!! I tried it out over the weekend and really loved the result! They're fairly easy to achieve and the layer seems really smooth and thin (not at all what I was expecting!!!) These are my Halloween inspired nails (I'm trying to bring you some Halloween DIY ideas on a budget - because first of all, I'm on a tight budget this Halloween, and secondly....I love Halloween and can't wait to constantly blog about it!!!)

First of all, I painted my nails with GOSH holographic (many bloggers out there have reviewed this product, yes I do love it, but I don't like the fact it chips so easily!!) Anyway, this look really requires a base coat of some sort. For this, choose a light colour.

Then, I dropped my desired nail varnish colours in water. The water technique can be viewed here!! 
The colours I used here were Rimmel 080 Black Cab and Barry M in Tangerine!
(I taped around the edge of my nails with tape - please excuse some varnish that I haven't cleaned up around the edges!! This happens..!)

P.S
Many of you have been saying 'I wish you were doing a fair near where I live' regarding the candles and stuff I make. Well...I was hoping to be able to sell some on here and am wondering how many of you would be interested in buying some teacup candles/ lucky dip gift boxes (with teacup candles + other lovely goodies inside) and other random stuff I make!!

  7. This is the first I've seen of marble nails and I think they look brilliant! I think I'm going to give it a go although I doubt they'll turn out as good as this!
    I absolutely love Halloween too!
