I wasn't sure what I was going to post today right up until I actually started typing. It's the reason for the late post. I haven't had much luck with my nails this weekend and even less luck in taking pictures. I finally picked up the supplies this weekend to make my light box, but what I haven't managed to find yet is the perfect setup for said light box or the correct setting on my camera. A lot of my pictures turn blurry and the others my camera does some automatic adjustment and turns the picture orange.
However, I do have one picture. It's not one I was planning on posting to the blog but it's all I have that isn't for the ABC Challenge or the Nail-Aween Challenge. So, here goes ...
I knew the moment Arcadia posted the tutorial, Witch's Brew, to her YouTube channel that I had to do these nails. There were no ifs, ands, or buts about it — this design was totally meant to be on my nails! I was in a hurry so I left off the spiders. In place of the polishes shown in the video, I used Sally Hansen's Green With Envy and Wet n Wild's Party of Five Glitters. I did use China Glaze's Jungle Queen as my base. I love how Arcadia decided on this color because it is so different from the usual black base most use in Halloween nail art. Jungle Queen also adds a lovely shimmer that looks wonderful and unexpected in the sun. I had a woman stop me and positively gush over these nails so I tip my virtual hat to Arcadia and send all that gushing her way — along with my own gushing!
Seriously, if you haven't found her channel on your own ... go! Go now; you won't be disappointed.
