Hello and welcome! Out trip last week got me really excited for Halloween manis, so that’s what I’m doing all month!
This week, I was really inspired by the nail art designs that are hidden underneath thermal, color-changing polish. I’ve seen it a bunch of times before, but can’t find a single saved example. So I searched, and found a very Halloween example from Sveta Sanders, just to help explain what I mean.
What I Used:
- Base Coat: Glisten & Glow – Base Coat
- 1st Color: Level Up Lacquer – Holoween
- 2nd Color: Twinkled T – Vibin’
- Top Coat: Glisten & Glow – Top Coat
- Ali Express SPH-011 stamping plate
- Twinkled T holo stamper & scraper
- lint roller sheet
- Twinkled T clean up brush, size #2
- acetone nail polish remover
I started with my usual base coat, and the two coats of LevelUp Lacquer – Holoween. I was so excited to get this thermal polish. It transitions from yellow, to orangey brown, to black, and is just perfect for Halloween! I just hope that the thermal properties of this polish last until next Halloween, because I’m definitely using it again.
Next, I simply stamped various spooky images (bats, spiders, haunted houses and trees) on to my nails in black. That way, they’d “disappear” when the temperature was right.
I absolutely love this mani! It’s so easy, and yet so intriguing. And the images blending in to the darkness really adds to the Halloween theme. I can’t wait to try it again next year. Only next time, I think I’ll use some liquid latex to cut down on clean up.
Hope everyone had a good week!
I played with my nails so much throughout the week! Constantly checking to see if I was hot/cold enough to change the color. It was definitely a great distraction. And luckily, even with all my extra attention, I didn’t pick at all.
