Review and Before & After: Halloween Nails with Stampaholics ST02

(Nothing to disclose)

Hello!

Fall is here and one of my favorite holidays is right around the corner--that's right, it's almost Halloween time!! To be sure you have time to get your hands on it in time for Halloween, I'm going to review a super spooky plate that will allow you to spookify your nails for whatever Halloween get-together you have on the books. :)

Today I'm gonna show you Stampaholics ST02, one of many cool plates you can find in the Stampaholics store. First let's take a gander at the plate:

The plate comes packaged in its own little cellophane package, with blue film to protect it. There's a little something for everyone; if you just want something a little fun, say you want a cute look for your child's Halloween party, there's a sweet little trick-or-treating ghost, some bats, a happy witch flying through the air. There's jack-o-lanterns, a haunted house scene, a fun pumpkin with pretty swirls. And if you're a little more twisted, like me, there's a scary body hanging in a graveyard--muah hah haaaahhhaaahhhhh!!

Can you guess what I used?

For the base of my manicure, I chose China Glaze Stoked To Be Soaked, a bright orange creme that I think is a perfect shade for Halloween:

Then I stamped the graveyard scene in Konad black; I stamped the tree portion on my ring finger, and the graveyard over the other fingers. I picked up the bat and moon from the top of the haunted house image to put on the top of the middle finger, and then the smallest bat of the bat trio for my pinky:

Yep, it's a little gory, it's a little gruesome, it's a little scary, but hey! It's Halloween!! You gotta roll like that on Halloween!!

So what do you think? Are you into Halloween? Which image on the plate is your favorite?

Hugs,

M.

    1. The secret is, it's stamping, not painting, so no smudging! That's one of the reasons I love nail stamping, it's so much easier, in my opinion. :)

    1. You know, it's funny, but I'm not sure I'd be able to do anybody else's nails. I guess if you learn one way it's hard to do it the other! :)
