The One With the Frankenstein Smoosh Manicure


Nothing to Disclose

Good morning Polished World!  I instructed you that you just have been going to be seeing loads of me over the subsequent few days!  I am actually portray an honest quantity of Halloween manicures, and I must share all of them earlier than Sunday!  I believe I’ll have all of them timed out completely come Halloween.  Not going to lie, I am moderately happy with myself for maintaining on it.  Now if I can do that for Christmas, it will likely be an ideal finish to the yr.  Everyone knows although that Christmas manicures are a few of my favourite to color, so I do not forsee myself having an issue.

As we speak’s manicure is a enjoyable one.  A couple of years go, I created an orange, white, and black Halloween smoosh manicure.  It got here up on my fb recollections and I display screen capped it as a reminder to re-create it this yr.  The opposite evening after I sat down to color, I simply wasn’t feeling the colours.  I wished to do the smoosh look, simply did not need that colour mixture.  Whereas scrolling on Fb, I got here throughout a kind of pages the place they beautify cookies, and so they have been icing these cute purple and inexperienced Frankenstein’s.  My colour inspiration was born.

Let’s have a look!

Colours Used:

  • China Glaze – Drink Up Witches
  • Coloration Membership – Plumeria 
  • ORLY – White Ideas
  • ORLY – Liquid Vinyl

I am not going to lie, I felt responsible that I gushed about different black and white polishes and veered from utilizing my ORLY loves that I had to return and use them for this look.  Completely satisfied I did, as a result of they’re the right consistency for the right smoosh manicure.  However let’s get actual right here, Drink Up Witches is the true star of this manicure.  The proper neon inexperienced for the Halloween season.  I’ve owned this polish for awhile, and I am unable to bear in mind a time the place I used it on it is personal.  Perhaps for my neon inexperienced drips final yr….or was that two years in the past?

Take a look at me getting off observe.  The smoosh mani could be very straightforward to re-create.  First, you begin off with a base of white polish.  When that is dry, both use liquid latex or put tape round your nail to assist with the clear up.  Now, there are two methods to do that, however each require a stamper.  The best way I create it’s by dripping the polishes on a paper plate.  As an illustration, I used about three little drips of inexperienced, two of purple, one bigger black, and one white.  You then take the stamper and smoosh it into the paint on the plate.  I then dab among the extra off the stamper as soon as on the plate, then I stamp proper onto the nail.  The second approach to do that which generally is a tad trickier and messier is to drip the polish instantly on the stamper, then dab it onto the plate, then onto the nail.  I really feel I haven’t got as a lot management over the polish the second approach, nevertheless it nonetheless works.

What do you assume?  Fan of this manicure?  Somthing that screams Halloween?

See you in a number of days for one more mani! <3
