"This is Halloween" Bats

Good evening! I am so late with this post, I know. My apologies! My sister, Jessica, is visiting me this weekend and we both did bat nails for the challenge (I coerced her) and I haven't had a chance to post them. So, better late than never.

Here are my nails inspired by this pinterest post:

Colors used:
   ● CHINA GLAZE Bizarre Blurple - base color
   ● CHINA GLAZE Fairy Dust - glitter over base color
   ● ZOYA Arizona mixed with White & CHINA GLAZE Lemon Fizz - moon
   ● Black and White acrylic for the bats

Jessica's nails:

Colors used:
   ● OPI Deutsche You Want Me Baby - base color
   ● CHINA GLAZE Fairy Dust - glitter over base color
   ● Black acrylic - bats

We both freehanded our bats. Jessica used a toothpick while I used a dotting tool. Isn't Deutsche You Want Me Baby gorgeous?!

I will have some posts to come of some of the crafts we did while she was here. (: Have a great evening! I will be back on schedule tomorrow with the next Halloween Challenge!

Thanks for popping in!


  1. I didn't have the bottle for Deutsche You Want Me Baby because I left it at home with a friend who loved it as much as I did when I put it on. The bottom two nails are a bit more accurate for the color, which is absolutely gorgeous!

  2. This was the first time I've used acrylic paint for nail art. It was surprisingly easy to work with and I would have enjoyed the experience more, except that drawing those bats on with a toothpick was a giant pain in the butt.

    1. Making the bats was most frustrating indeed. I do not excel in bat art.
