I'm kicking off my Halloween manis from now until the end of the month.  I have quite a few Halloween themed designs and since I don't generally use these fun & playful designs, I figured this would be the perfect time to start.

Since its a Halloween themed mani I had to start off using orange with the designs stamped in black...very simple.  And for my accent nail, my middle finger, I decided to apply crackle polish.  I've had crackle polish for a while but due to my love for stamping I've just never used it.  My goal was to layer 2 crackle polishes over one another, but my China Glaze crackle polish did NOT crack at all.  The Pure Ice crackle polish cracked perfectly.

Here's what I used:
  • Base coat: Rejuvicote by Duri
  • Base color: Marjorie by +Julep Maven 
  • Top coat 1: Miracoate by Duri Fast drying Top Coat - I apply this before stamping, if I mess up I can remove the design without removing the base color
  • Stamp colors: Black Gold by Konad
  • Top coat 2: IBD UV Top Coat cured under a 54 watt UV lamp for 5 minutes
  • IP: Dashica Beauty Shop Big SdP N
