Out of the murky gloom floats the Grim Reaper, his scythe raised, ready to escort you beyond this mortal sphere. Not yet having mastered appearing ghoulish and foreboding, this particular Grim Reaper is perhaps in training. Even armed with an otherworldly weapon, he is adorable!
I started with BB Couture Adam, then added the Not-So-Grim Reaper from image plate T29. I chose Konad white stamping polish for the ghostly gentlemen. An orange Moon hangs in the eerie sky. I used an Art Club striper in Penny Pincher to create fine tipping. Once we pass the Halloween season, Adam would look attractive with the tipping alone.
Prickly rose hips.
Fanciful peppers! Like little bells!
Adam has a multitude of shimmer. I detect purple as well as copper in the mix. If you are looking for a noteworthy taupe this season, I recommend Adam. This is a gorgeous, understated polish. It took three coats for opacity. This shade applies beautifully and dries quickly.
I have been having a great time incorporating some non-traditional colors for Halloween manicures. I think the holiday can easily be celebrated outside the realm of bright orange and black.
