#WNAC2014 - October / Fall: Roundup

Saturday, November 01, 2014
Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a great Halloween, if you celebrated it!

I thought I would do a quick roundup post for my first Weekly Nail Art Challenge.  I know I have yet to post the last few here, so I figured I would just group them into one and share my Halloween nails from yesterday.


For floral week, I created a pretty simple berry and orange floral, inspired by a photo I found on Google (I believe it was).  I really loved the hints of black which made it more fall appropriate, as well as the artistic sort of watercolor quality that I like.  I mixed up my own black jelly using an old top coat, some thinner, and black polish for the look, as well as the gorgeous shade Deeply In Love from The Body Shop.  You also have a little peek at my Bastille inspired skull nail (thumb).


Pattern week, I went for something a bit different, but also inspired by a pattern I found on Pinterest.  I created this really cool base by sandwiching a bunch of sparkly fall colors (and holo shimmer) in between the same black jelly (which has become so handy!), and then hand painted the pattern using Essie Good As Gold and my favorite 18/0 Round brush from Michael's.



For Halloween, I created a really pretty orange gradient, using Essie Fear or Desire over a white base.  Then, I sponged on some white as clouds, and painted a few little black bats, trees, and some funny pumpkin silhouettes with a-England Camelot.  They are very typical Halloween, but I love how simple they are at the same time.



You can check out my previous #WNAC2014 posts here, if you'd like!  There's a tutorial for the gradient flower petals as well, or you can watch over on YouTube.

We will be continuing the weekly challenge into November with a new theme: Metallic, so feel free to join in and post with us, too!


I hope you all enjoyed the designs, and thank you for reading! :)
