Misty Green-Grey Halloween Nails

Happy (early) Halloween, everyone! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so even though I've been super busy with work and vacation and then getting sick at the end of it all, I couldn't let the occasion pass without posting some seasonally appropriate nails here.

These may not be stereotypically Halloween-y nails, but they feel dark & spooky enough to me to fit the bill. Like bare, dead tree branches silhouetted against a dreary grey sky, maybe... or cracks in a dingy windowpane. Or... something that sounds a little grim and unattractive? Can you tell I'm still feeling under the weather?

My base here is piCture pOlish Camo, and then I sponged on Julep Janae to create the gradient. Then I stamped on the branches/cracks/web pattern with MoYou London's black stamping polish, Black Knight, and plate 05 from the hehe Superhero collection. That's actually the Black Widow plate, so these are almost certainly supposed to be spider webs, but I can't bring myself to think of them that way. I love Black Widow, but I really hate spiders!

It's amazing to me how Camo changes when it's next to the dark blue-grey of Janae. It looks so green in the bottle, but nearly all that green disappears and it becomes quite grey when used beside another grey color.

This stamping plate and polish combo worked so perfectly. Crisp, clean stamps every time!

Thanks for looking, and if you're celebrating this weekend, have a fun & safe Halloween!


  1. Gradient and stamps - probably my favourite combo :) Looks awesome!

    1. Thank you! I agree... stamping over a gradient is definitely one of my favorite go-to looks too. :)

  2. Gradient plus stamps is a wonderful combination! I`ve got very similar manicure at the nail salon in Ibiza last summer. It lasted for 5 weeks without any peeling.
