Black and Orange Dotted Halloween Mani


If you spend any time on Pinterest, you’ve likely come across tons of fun Halloween manicures in the recent weeks.  I find myself pinning these like crazy, but when it comes time to actually do my nails, I never actually try these fun ideas out!  So after lusting after many a nail pinspiration, I decided it was time to finally try my hand at a Halloween inspired manicure, just in time for this Friday!

Since nail art really isn’t my strong suit, I decided to keep it pretty easy by doing a mix of colors, along with a polka dotty accent nail.  To create this look, I selected two of my favorite Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes from their latest Blogger Collection– NailsandNoms, a shimmery orange microglitter, and Fashion Polish, a glitzy black microglitter.  


I decided to paint every nail orange, with the exception of my pointers, which I did in the black.  After two coats of each, I used my Butter London dotting tool (on the smaller end), and dipped in a pure black polish.  For this, I used Nars Kata.  


Then I carefully dotted onto my ring finger of each hand.  After letting dry, I applied my favorite top coat, CND Super Shiney, and viola – instant Halloween nails!  


I love the fun and festive look and was impressed with just how easy it was to do!  I definitely recommend picking up a dotting tool if you are a fan of nail art since it made it so much easier.  What are your favorite Halloween mani looks?

Excited to be linking up with ShannaWordless Wednesday, and Morgan!
