#ablecaw14 Week 7: Trick or Treat

Halloween is here so what better time to post my second Finnish(able) Nail Art Challenge manicure than today! The second theme of this week was of course Trick or Treat, so I wanted to do something Halloween-ish. However, I already did one Halloween nail art manicure and I really didn't want anything too obvious, so I decided to do a bit different Halloween manicure this time.

I did want to use these quite traditional Halloween colors, orange and black, but I didn't want to do any pumpkins or such, so I decided to use some water decals instead. I also really wanted to use China Glaze Riveting for this manicure, since it really is my favorite orange polish and it's been a while since I've used it, so this was the perfect time to get it out from the helmer and on nails. 

I'm actually bit worried that I will at some point run out of Riveting, so I decided to save it a bit and paint a coat of orange under it. That's why I started this manicure with a coat of Essie Orange, It's Obvious. Then I did a coat of Riveting and on top of those I applied a black water decal on each nail. These decals were a bit curved so you end up with a neat half moon manicure. I decided that my mani still needed something, so finally I added some black dot glitters to that half moon line.

Essie Orange, It's Obvious! 1 coat
China Glaze Riveting 1 coat
water decals
dot glitters
Glisten&Glow HK Girl top coat

This sure isn't an obvious Halloween manicure, but to me the reference is still there. And once again that Riveting looks just so devine! I'm not really planning on celebrating Halloween in any way since it's not that big of a deal here in Finland anyhow, but it's still nice to have nails that match the day, at least somewhat.

How about you guys, are you celebrating Halloween and do you have nails to go with the day?

  1. Hi Annie, I kept it simple like you and just polished my nails a combo of orange and black with some glitter. Easy but still looks festive! We'll be wearing winter coats for Trick-or-Treat tonight: it'll "only" be in the 30's and windy here in the Midwest. Brr. I mean, Boo!

    1. Hope you will get many treats in spite of the weather! :) I've never done any Trick-or-Treating as it isn't a custom here in Finland, but I'm sure it would be lots of fun. :)

  2. Minusta nämä on oikein onnistuneesti tulkitut Trick or Treatit. Omat on niin itsentäänselvät, että näissä siun on paljon enemmän omaperäisyyttä :) Kieltämättä aika herkku tuo Riveting!

    1. Kiitoksia! :) Miä kyllä tykkäsin kovasti niistä sun kynsistä, olit valinnut niihin niin hyvät sävyt, jotka teki niistä vähemmän itsestäänselvät! :) Riveting on superherkku! :)
