8 Spooky Nights - Black and Orange

Halloween is finally here, and that means the end of the 8 Spooky Nights challenge!!

I have to give a very big thank you to Kelly at Peace Love Lacquer for putting the challenge together! It's been an amazing 8 nights!


Something that I loved about this challenge is that is didn't require any specific techniques, only different themes. That being said, water marbling is one of the few things I've been scared to try! I always thought I wouldn't get a good outcome(which is a common problem I've seen!) and that it would be extremely messy! However, for black and orange, I decided to try out water marbling!


Here we go!! It's a tad messy and I already have tip wear since I need to go buy a new quick dry top coat (I've used literally an entire bottle in the past 2 months!!) I am SO happy with how these turned out though! I used a couple different oranges, including a really light one. It shows up as yellow-ish here, but on my nails it's a nice sherbet orange! I used a black shimmer that spread a lot, so my nails also have a touch of grey to them.

I am now OBSESSED with water marbling! I did my left hand with red/black/plum, but the top coat bubbled too much and you can't see the design that well. Since I'm not working tonight or going to a party I think I'll spend Halloween water marbling and watching some scary movies!
