Halloween Challenge: #6 Free for all

Happy belated Halloween to everyone! It’s not widely celebrated in SA, but I’m sure it was huge in the US.

These are a bit late, but it’s the final day of the Halloween Challenge and it was a free for all. I’ve seen this style of manicure a few times this Halloween and I love the idea. I did a sunset/evening landscape with gravestones, an eerie tree and some mist. I hope you all like it!

Halloween Challenge: #5 Trick or Treat

Hello there lovely people!

I must be honest, this is not my favourite mani! But, for the sake of the Halloween Challenge, I’m going to post it. You can let me know what you think….

I tried to create a really subtle candy cane stripe effect. I also had a brilliant (or not so) to add that fluff as stripes. Naturally, it went everywhere! So now that I’ve managed your expectations, here it is:

Halloween Challenge: #4 Gothic

I hope you have all had a fabulous weekend! I’ve had a very relaxing and restful one.

Here is my design for the “Gothic” theme. I’m not sure if it’s really Gothic, but I tried! I used a Modi deep red that I had from Korea (number 68 – my Korean is quite rusty, but I think it’s called “Riding Hood”). I left some of the nail natural. I also went a bit gem-crazy. It’s nice to go over the top once in a while 🙂

Halloween Challenge: #3 Things that go BUMP in the night!

Fresh off the press! I’ve just finished this mani and I’m very happy!

The theme for today was “Things that go BUMP in the night”. I decided to stick with one type of monster and just make a little family of them on my fingertips. I think they are more adorable than scary… What do you think? Which is your favourite.. the “baby” on my pinky nail is definitely mine!

Hallowe’en Challenge: #2 Pumpkins

I had a bit of a hard time with this topic. My nails are SO short at the moment, it’s very difficult to paint such detailed images on such a tiny surface. But I tried my best and I hope you like it.

We had a Wellness Day at my work on Friday and I got a free mini-manicure. So the base coat for this is an Essie polish. I then sponged on a bit of orange (to make it more pumpkin-like). I then hand painted 2 jack-o-lanterns and an attempt at a gravestone (you can’t really see the R.I.P… oopsie).

I’m not sure if anyone noticed on my new header and the logo on this post, I’ve designed a new Lekker Lacquer Logo. I’m really loving it! I’ve done it in about 10 different colours so I can just stick it on to my pics 🙂
