Halloween is my very favorite holiday of the year & Friday the 13th this year feels like a little preview! I wanted to take a page from a scene you’ll see in lots of horror/slasher flicks: the static TV. You know exactly what I mean…the TV gets all static-y & suddenly…it gets eerie. Yeah! I went with an easy design but I think it captured the vibe!
Base Coat: Essie Base Coat in Grow Stronger
Base Color: Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color in French White Creme
Black & White Glitters: Claire’s Splatter (review here) & Hard Candy Black Tie Optional
Matte Top Coat: Butter LONDON Matte Finish Shine Free Top Coat
Red Glitter “Blood”: NYC Long Wearing Nail Enamel in 116 Broadway Burgundy Frost
Honestly I started out with the Claire’s Splatter polish over the white & had forgotten that it was that scattered. I reached for the Hard Candy afterwards. I wanted it to look a bit dull in comparison to the “blood” so I topped it with Butter LONDON Matte. I chose to use the NYC in Broadway Burgundy Frost because I thought back to this rave from Nouveau Cheap & sifted through my stash to find it. While the name is just silly (not burgundy… not a frost at all…) the color fit with my idea. I figured the shimmer would catch the light & the jelly formula would let you see beneath & look liquidy/glossy.
I’m pretty darn happy with the outcome! I’m curious about what you think about this look & Friday the 13th in general. Are you superstitious? What’s on your nails this fine day?
