Halloween Challenge: Witches (and of course a monkey)



Today's theme for the Halloween Challenge is witches... but I went more non-traditional and did monkey witches! I got to thinking about Halloween, kids and movies and why kids' Halloween movies did not scare kids yet they have "scary" characters in them, then it dawned on me- the characters themselves are not gorey and vile but more cartoon like and cheery. So today, I bring you a cheery monkey witch I created using waterslide decals. If you follow me of facebook you'll notice my profile picture is my Manicured Monkey with the witch's hat and broom :) I loved it so much I turned them into decals. I also did simple dotting around the edges and the neutral color (OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons)behind it really makes the monkey and mani pop. Super simple mani to do because waterslide decals are easy to use and a dotting tool is pretty much fool proof when you use it as I have. Try it sometime, if you do, send me your pictures!
In the meantime you can check out every one else's manis on the Pinterest Board and below :)

  3. These are just the cutest things! I am sending this on to some folks who I think will love the look. It's not that in your face Halloween mani - and it's one I would not tired of like I do most in a day's time...and I also think you can wear this starting next week when we don't want to be in ghoulish nails already - those to me need to be just for a few days before Halloween.
