#Spooktober Day 6: Skeleton/Ghost nails

I did have these on time, just put off posting them until today! Sunday was release day for the new China Glaze Halloween line: Apocalypse of Color. I got the glitter topper a couple of weeks ago via Amazon because I found it for a discounted price, but I really wanted this one (Don’t Let the Dead Bite) as well and decided to wait until it was out at Sally’s. I used a smidgen of this on my vampire manicure, but here it is as a full mani!

Spooktober Day 6: Skull nails
Spooktober Day 6: Skull nails

This is 3 coats of Don’t Let the Dead Bite. I didn’t want any visible nail line. After painting them I didn’t want to cover this up much, so I did a simple skull/crossbones stamp (inspired by @thedotcouture). I decorated the skull with little flower gems for a kind of Day of the Dead vibe!
