Don't Go Around Tonight

Well, it's bound to take your life!

This is my submission to Polish Freshie's Halloween Contest & Giveaway

Every Halloween I get CCR's "Bad Moon" stuck in my head for days. :)

I don't know If I really achieved my desired effect, but it was fun to try it out. I painted my base colour using Claire's BlackHole, then took my white Kiss nail art polish and outlined the moons. Filled in using Claire's Snowball, and then took the very tip of the brush of my Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Chocolate Kiss to speckle on some pinkish-red. Since the moon was still quite soft and tacky I used a toothpick to swirl around the red and white and bring some of the black up from beneath. I placed different sized stars using a toothpick and my SH X-Treme Wear Strobe Light, and CG Disco Dazzle. Topcoat and voila!

More Halloween Manis coming!
