Hi Y'all!! Happy Thursday!! Almost the weekend!! Not that I have any plans, but at least I don't have to do all the cooking. So I met some wonderful ladies Tuesday while eating lunch and they really liked my nails, so, I'm skipping order to show you these now. So here are my first Halloween nails, Drips and Gradients:
Zoya- Dhara (glittery orange texture polish)
Orly- Liquid Vinyl (black crème)
Dotting Tool (ball point pen will work great too)
Make Up Sponge
For the gradient nails, I started with two coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl. Once that dried, I cut up a wedge make up sponge (the ones from a dollar store work perfectly) into more manageable sizes. But you don't have to, it just works better for me. I also wet the sponges and wring them out. This seems to make them more porous and work better Then just paint the edge of the sponge with Zoya Dhara and dab your nails starting at the tip and working your way 3/4 of the way down your nail. Just dab. You don't want a solid color, you want the base to show through. When that has dried, repeat the steps going 1/2 way down your nails and then repeat again only going 1/4 of the way down your nails. Then just seal it all with top coat.
