Digit-al Dozen Does Spooky Days; Day 1

The Digit-al Dozen is doing an optional week of Halloween mani's this week; here's what I came up with for Day 1!

Started with a base of two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (no pix as have shown before).  Sponged candy corn nails using Revlon Alluring Amber (orange) and Sally Hansen Insta-dri Lightening (yellow).

Top coated with KBShimmer Clearly on Top. (While I could have stamped on top of the sponging without top coat, I top coated in case I needed easy removal of any of the images; good thing I did because I had to stamp the index finger 3 times before I got it somewhat straight on the third try!)

Stamped using black Konad special polish using images from MJ JR-22 (thumb, middle and pinky) and Chez Halloween 005 (index and ring).  

MJ JR-22

Added bats from T23 and spiders from T43 randomly for spooky interest and filler.

Topcoated to finish.

I did my right hand slightly different; really liked how it turned out too!

The next night, I decided to do some lead lighting with jelly polishes.  One the fence if I like this look or not but extended the mani for a day anyway!

Here's the other ladies Day 1 Spooky mani's!

Thanks for looking!


  1. I love your take on the classic candy corn look which is cute and pairing it with creepy monsters!

  2. I love it with all of the added dots and colors, it really brings it all to life.

  3. I love all the different variations that you did! I don't know how you always manage to pair so many different stamps so wonderfully together. These are so fun :)

  4. I love them all! I really love what the leadlighting does to the images! Awesome!

  5. Your stamping is, as always, flawless! And the gradient just ties it all together so nicely!
