Boo-lated Halloween Mani

I know we're way into November, turkeys, cornucopias etc. I've been very behind. When it's dark out at night all I want to do is grab a glass of wine and snuggle with all my boys in front of the boob tube after work. I'm really trying to get motivated to do more nail art!

This was my real Halloween mani. Since I picked up China Glaze Howl You Doin'? it needed to be used in the appropriate manner. This is two coats of that gorgeous dark jelly. While I heart the concept of a dark purple jelly, the formula itself was a nightmare! It was like sludge. Not sure if thinner would help this little ghoul out.
Still, the orange flakie and vampy color payoff was worth the pain in applying. I then ATTEMPTED the face brush nail art technique. You know the one where you wet your brush and draw it across your nails? This was supposed to look liked candy corn. Um not. It was one coat of Cover Girl unnamed followed by Essence Be Your Sunshine followed by China Glaze Life Preserver.
