I have my last Halloween manicure of the season to share with you, along with some flora and fauna. My friend David and I journeyed to Longwood Gardens today to revel in the fall color. My festive nails added a bit more paint to the landscape.

Art Club: Bewitching Halloween Gems
Look who came out to the meadow to greet us! One of the feline workers at Longwood Gardens pauses during a hunting expedition.
My striped and bejeweled manicure was created using the Cast a Spell Kit from Color Club and the Art Club Bewitching Halloween Gems. I began with a whitening base coat, added two layers of Spellbound (neon orange), and sealed it with top coat.
I then painted two coats of Charmed I'm Sure (purple shimmer) at a diagonal across the upper two thirds of my nails. I wrapped the tips throughly and added topcoat. I layered a stripe of Hocus Pocus (holographic glitter) in the center. Hocus Pocus has a fast dry time.
I waited a bit for the glitter polish to become thoroughly dry and then placed bat stickers along the stripe. I alternated solid bats with bat outline decals. The kit has a great variety of Halloween designs: haunted houses, ghosts, ghouls, moons, stars, spirals, gravestones and glitter dots. The Gothic ladies among us would be enchanted by Cast A Spell all year long.
Because I can't keep away from rhinestones, I positioned a silver dot over the orange polish and an orange dot over the purple. The Bewitching Halloween Gems wheel also has pearls! Although they didn't appear in this manicure, you will be seeing the pearls in future designs. I also have plans for the miniature black and orange beads.
I hope you enjoyed my Halloween fun!
The Color Club Bewitching Cast a Spell Kit and the Art Club Halloween Gems were sent to me for review. These can be purchased at victoriasnailsupply.com.
Happy painting, ladies!
