Cute Ghosties | #glamnailschallengeoct

Hey everyone! This month I am participating in the Glam Nails Challenge, which is a monthly nail art challenge. If you missed my last entries, you can check them out here.

One prompt that I missed and fully intended to do was the third one, Ghosts! So here we are! I decided to do this mani centered around Scofflaw’s September PPU contribution colour scheme, Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun. I love the look of these ghosts in soft purples and greys. And look closely, because there is a thermal hidden in one of the ghosts on most nails!

  1. For this manicure, I started by applying a peel off base coat (UNT Ready for Takeoff)
  2. For the base polish I used a grey crelly polish with a variety of lilac, red and black glitters and microglitters (Scofflaw Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun).
  3. Before applying designs to any of the nails, I used a thick top coat to smooth out some of the texture (American Classics Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat).
  4. I then reverse stamped a variety of ghost designs from the Maniology M056 Boo Ya: Ghosted stamping plate with a white stamping polish (Maniology Bam! White). I filled in all of the ghosts with a variety of lilac, pink, grey and sparkly topper polishes with a dotting tool (Fancy Gloss Cinder Rose (thermal), Cirque Colours A Fiori, China Glaze Fairy Dust, Fancy Gloss Witchcraft, Polished For Days Solasta, Potion Polish Inverness, Scofflaw Grey Goose, Cirque Colors Reflektor, By Dany Viana Zombie Rainbow, Cirque Colors Cloud Nine).
  5. Before applying the dried stamped designs to the nails, I used applied the Maniology Sticky Base Coat to each nail to help transfer. I then transferred each design.
  6. The “FaBOOlous” design was a direct transfer from the MoYou London Halloween 03 stamping plate. I LOVE this little saying! It’s one of the best ones I’ve seen on a plate.
  7. To protect the design I used the Maniology Smudge Free Top Coat on top (Use code SUPERNOVA10 to save 10% off Maniology purchases (affiliate)). I then added a glossy top coat (Vibrant Vinyls Fast & Hard Pumkpin Spice Latte Quick Dry Glossy Top Coat). The last step was a matte top coat (Anchor & Heart Sea Glass Hazelnut Cat Matte Top Coat).

I’m so happy I decided to go back and do this prompt. This ghost plate is one of my favourites so I was glad to use it again!
