Nail Art Tutorial: Happy Halloween!

Finger nails with sparkly clouds across them and a harvest moon on the ring finger; a second set of fingernails with pumpkins on them.
I am a little in love with Julep's Casper Glow in the Dark Nail Polish! It sparkles and with two coats it glows enough that I've scared myself at night when I go to brush my hair out of my face or something... also apparently I'm rather jumpy these days.

Anyway, this time I had the foresight to actually take pictures of each step so here is my first nail art tutorials.  Enjoy.

First is the pumpkin nails...
 Step 1: Two coats of Casper
 Step 2: Roundish Dots of Nan
Step 3: Curved Stripes (with a striping brush but still thick enough stripes that a regular little paint brush would probably do) of Marjorie.
 Step 4: Little steps of Candace (again with the striping brush)
Step 5: Strip over part of the stem and add little background leaves beside the pumpkins with Popova
 Finally, back to Casper for little pumpkin faces that will glow along with the background.  I used a dotting tool for this one.  :)
 And now for the harvest moon nails...
Step 1: Two coats of Daria.
 Step 2: One big dot of Anisa.
 Step 3. Before the Anisa is fully dry, add a generous dot of Casper over top and move around with a dotting tool to get texture on your moon.  

Step 4. When the moon is dry, use the end of a Q-tip to sponge Brandt clouds accross the nails.
Step 5. Sponge Casper over your Brandt in places to finish the clouds and make them glow like the moon!
Hope you love these as much as I do!!!!!
