8 Spooky Nights Day's 1-4: Skulls, Vamipres, Candy & Ghosts

Hi dolls! Sorry I've been so MIA lately, I've been dealing with some pretty big issues on the home front and blogging just wasn't a priority. But I'm back and it's time for another nail art challenge! Well it started a few days ago, and I've done my nails for each day I just haven't had the motivation to type a post up so you get the first 4 days in one, and a separate post later today with Day 5!

I'm super excited to be participating in the 8 Spooky Nights nail art challenge hosted by my good friend Kelly from Peace Love Lacquer because this is my absolute favorite holiday. Today, tomorrow and next week I'll be showing you guys some of my nail art from my favorite season!

Day 1: Skulls

For skulls, I didn't want to do typical skelton or Jack Skellington so I chose to do Sugar Skulls! I'm obsessed with the whole sugar skull theme so it was perfect! These came out alright, although they weren't what I pictured in my head. For this mani I used China Glaze Bizarre Blurple, China Glaze Rougish Red and Dazzle Dry Portia's Wit (aka my new favorite white). The nose is a small upside down glitter heart that I got for review from Dahlia over at datyorkLOVES which went perfectly!

Day 2: Vampires

For day 2 I just went really really simple. Honestly, I didn't even take a good picture of this one. It's your typical crappy camera phone pic only because this way a bad day for me and even nail polish couldn't get me out of my funk (shocking right?). For this mani, I used OPI Berlin There Done That on my pointer, Dazzle Dry Portia's Wit as the vamp's skin with Nina Ultra Pro Black for his hair and teeth. On my ring finger I picked up my NYX Dark Glitter which was a great black jelly packed with red hex glitters and for the blood drip I chose Milani Rapid Cherry and again the Nina Ultra Pro Black.

Day 3: Candy

Day 3 makes me hungry just thinking about it. I have a severe sweet tooth and I live for the time when candy corn, candy apples and pumpkin everything to come out and then hoard it until Christmas LOL. I decided to go with my two favorite candy's -- candy corn and Hershey's Kisses! Used this mani: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow, China Glaze Rougish Red, Wet n Wild French White Creme, OPI Berlin There Done That, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Celeb City and a white nail art pen.

Day 4: Ghosts

Day 4 has been my absolute favorite day from the challenge BY FAR and I am absolutely thrilled with the way these turned out. I wanted to do a little play on words and include a gorgeous Halloween indie I picked up earlier this month. So introducing, Mr. and Mrs. Boo! I decided to make a husband and wife ghost and put accents of Lacquerhead Polish's My Boo, a gorgeous white creme with orange and black hexes, and some black and purple glitters for a gorgeous finish. I used a white nail art pen for the ghosts, Zoya Aurora for Mrs. Boo's bow and Nina Ultra Pro Black for Mr. Boo's hat and ta-da!!! SOOO happy with these I didn't even want to take them off!

I'll have Day 5 up later today, but while you're waiting be sure to go back and check out the designs from the other ladies participating!!
