spooky eyes nail art for #naillinkup

oct-nail-themes

One of our NAIL themes for October is THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT.  I was really drawing a blank on this one.  Which is kind of ironic considering I suggested this theme when Brijit and Eeeek and I were corroborating about the October NAIL prompts!   I just had too many ideas swimming in my head- bats, vampires, creepy crawlies….so I turned to google for some inspiration.  I found an artist named Vicky Scott who created this illustration called..

THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT!  How appropriate.  You can see her cute print here on Hire an Illustrator.   I really liked the image she created- especially her spooky eyes floating in the darkness.  Eyeballs seemed liked they’d be easy to paint on a small nail canvas so here’s what I came up with…

I applied Sally Hansen Maximum Growth as my basecoat, two coats of Essence Grey-t To Be Here, and then I hand painted the black accents and eyes using red white and black polishes.   I waited a good 20 minutes before I applied my seche topcoat because I would’ve hated to smear the eyes if they weren’t dry.  I didn’t do too much nail art on this mani so I didn’t want to ruin the little bit that I did do!

The next mani I want to work on is the next October NAIL theme: TREATS AND SWEETS!  Nom nom nom!  Hopefully we’ll see some peanut butter or chocolate.  Or both!
