Spooky Silhouettes

Sharpie madness continues! I was watching a gray scale makeup tutorial, like you do, and was inspired to do a gray scale manicure. It turned out ok...but not great. So I started to wonder what I could add to it...and my eyes fell on my trusty Sharpie.


Colors Used
Orly Mirror Mirror
China Glaze Liquid Leather
(nyc matte top coat)



I actually had a lot of fun drawing this...though I am lamenting my inability to draw crescent moons. I don't know why I can't. But the rest turned out pretty cool. Even my bats look less like they escaped a radio-active cave this time. High fives for me!

I didn't start out with a matte-icure. But my current lightbox isn't the best for actual designs. I need to hit the drawing board again. Maybe I'll just cave and stick to a traditional style...sometimes things are classics for a reason.






Do you prefer the overtly Halloweeny nails, or the slightly more subtle designs? I'm personally pretty fond of all of them, though I admit that I don't like doing the same thing I've seen on someone else. I have long-standing hipster tendencies like that.
