Pastel Goth/Halloween Manicure | Bats, Coffins & Sparkle

Hello gorgeous, I'll be sharing exactly how I created this nail art look with you. It's absolutely one of my favourite manicures that I've done. & You'll be seeing lots more of these kind of pastel goth/halloween manicures.

First thing I did to start this look was applied Unt's Ready For Takeoff Peel-Off base coat. After the base coat dried, I applied 1 coat of Sally Hansen's Well, Well, Well. The white base acts as a blank canvas, which allows the pastels to be their true colour.

Next using the Lina Make Your Mark 03 stamping plate as well as three nail polishes to create the gradient. The purple/pink is IBD Chic to Chic, Blue is Sally Hansen Sky's The Limit & the green is China Glaze Grass is Lime Greener. The plate is super simple to use I just added a drop of each polish on one side of the blank space (length wise), then scraped it a few times so it'd blend the colours together.  The best part of these is if you stamp the design on & you don't care for it, you can always just stamp a new gradient over the one you didn't like & taadaa!

 Once I had the gradient the way I wanted it, I applied a coat of no wipe top coat, cured it. I used the Bio Seaweed Gel top coat, just in case you were wondering.

& used the Cre8tion Chameleon Flakes #13. I gently applied them by dipping the silicone tool into the flakies, & then just slightly pushing them onto the nail, do not burnish them onto the nail. If you burnish (rub) them onto the nail, it might tear up the larger pieces, it'll also rub them into the whole nail in an even layer. I however wanted a more dispersed look.

Next step I did was I used Lina's Spooklicious! 01 plate. I used the cross/coffins on the left side for the ring nail & the bats on the top right for the other nails.

 The stamping polish I used was a mixture of Color Club Beyond & Mundo De Unas Black stamping polish. The stamper I used was the XL nonsticky from Uber Chic.

After everything was done I sealed it all in with a top coat, making sure to cap the edge.
