Jewli's 31 Day Halloween Nail Art Challenge: Day 20 - Violet

These are another example of something that sounded super cool in my mind and didn't translate well with the execution. I received these two polishes (CG Ghoulish Glow and Bizarre Blurple) in one of my birthday packages from a lovely woman in my birthday group Momma Elizabeth yesterday. I saw swatches of Bizarre Blurple and thought it was nice, but nothing special. After putting it on, I was in love. :) And as I've said before, I will never be one to put up swatches to help people decide if you should buy a polish. I'm about the art. :)

My idea was to paint the violet base and use the Ghoulish Glow to paint an invisible ghost. Then I was going to work on my glow in the dark pictures. The first problem was that I put the GG on too thick (hoping it'd make it show up better) and it wasn't invisible by any stretch of the imagination. The second problem was that I can't make it show up in my dark pictures.

Well, on to the next one! :D


  1. Too bad it didn't come out the way you'd envisioned, but your ghostie is totally cute! Love the finish on that blurple too. ;)

  2. I love that the ghostie is a little transparent. And I've not yet mastered GITD photography either!!
