Frankenstein’s Monster | Halloween Mani

Hey everyone! Happy Halloween! We are finishing off this year’s Halloween manis featuring a cute Frankenstein’s monster. This was a great opportunity to show off some of my favourite Rogue polishes!

*This mani contains items received in PR

  1. For this manicure, I started by applying a peel off base coat (UNT Ready for Takeoff)
  2. For my base I used a white crelly with matte black and metallic chartreuse, purple, and teal flakies (Rogue Lacquer Tricks and Spoopy Treats).
  3. For the patchwork designs I used the Maniology MXM063 Stamping plate* from September’s subscription box. I picked up the design with a black stamping polish (Maniology Straight Up Black) and the Whats Up Nails Jumbo Stamper, and filled in the design with purple, green and white polishes (Rogue Fright Night*, Dancing Free* and Tricks and Spoopy Treats) using a dotting tool.
  4. For the monster I used the MoYou London Festive Collection – 53 Stamping Plate and filled in the design with all the same polishes as listed above.
  5. To help transfer I applied a sticky base coat to all of my nails and let them dry for a couple of minutes.
  6. Once the designs were dry I transferred them onto the nails.
  7. I finished off the mani by applying the Apipila Cosmeticos Smudge Free Nail Art Top Coat, followed by a glossy top coat, Vibrant Vinyls Fast & Hard Quick Dry Glossy Top CoatSomething that I have been doing lately to give nails with reverse stamping that extra smooth finish is apply multiple coats of a smoothing top coat (Glisten & Glow Glitter Grabber) after applying the smudge free, and before the QDTC. This is an optional step for sure, as I mostly do it to help my pictures look better. This is something I don’t show in videos as it is redundant.

It’s always so bittersweet seeing a holiday season come to an end! I had so many more manis I wanted to do, but there’s always next year!

Watch my video tutorial below to see how it was done!
