This year in lieu of pumpkins and ghosts, I am going with a more chic feel for Halloween nails, though I would say this has nothing to do with Halloween (haha).
While I was in Taiwan, my cousin gave me a few bottles of nail polish, one of which was a matte black crackle. Personally, I never really liked crackle polish, they look unfinished and the OPI ones I tried out didn’t look that great. This one, however, had a pretty neat look to it. It crackled in the right places and looks pretty nice. So an idea popped in my head just last night. I ‘ve always liked the contrast between matte and shiny, especially for the colour black. I find the different characteristics intriguingly interesting. So I thought, what if I put a coat of cream black polish under that matte crackle, and made this.
I went with a rose gold base for my ring finger, because you all know how I don’t like boring. Ideally, I would have liked the shiny black to come through a bit better, but I think the crackle pulls some of the shine away. Maybe I can try a metallic black next time. Overall though I do like the look of this mani, and I do think it has a bit of a Halloween-esque feel to it, don’t you?
