Twinsie Tuesday: Halloween

30 Oct

Being that I’ve been doing Halloween manis throughout the month, I saved my best for today.  I’ve had this design in mind for weeks now and almost didn’t do it out of sheer laziness.  I must say, it’s pretty awesome, so I’m happy I finally did it.

I vaguely remember watching Stephen King’s “It” years ago and being terrified of that clown.   Growing up one of my cousins had a bit of a clown theme in her bedroom.  I used to spend the night there regularly when my family was in town visiting.  I was always creeped out by all her clowns.  Granted they were happy circus clowns, but still.  Was I really supposed to believe that they weren’t going to come to life as soon as I went to sleep and come after me?  Thankfully I made it through many sleepovers unscathed.

Clowns, evil or not, are creepy to a lot of people, so I decided it would be fun to take advantage of that.  Knowing this was going to be an involved design, I opted for just one clown and did a fading gradient dot design on the rest of my nails.  I marbled my polka dots and love how some of them came out so swirly.  The base polish on all my nails is Julep Brigitte.  It’s become my favorite white and I’m down to half a bottle.  I need to ease up on it a bit.  The orange gradient is Jordana Orangesicle and the marbled black is China Glaze Liquid Leather.

For my clown I used Julep Molly for the red lips, Sinful Colors GoGo Girl for the nose, Sinful Colors Amethyst for the purple eyes, and Julep Annette for the wrinkles and creases in his face.  I topped it off with Hong Kong Girl top coat.

I hope to be able to wear this for a couple days so I can admire my handy work.  Hopefully my ring finger won’t magically come to life during the night and try to strangle me. 😉
