Amor de Lacquer: Halloween nail art

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to

It’s Halloween time, y’all! I don’t really get into the whole dressing up thing–although this year my girls want to go to Miami. In which case if I DO go, I’m dressin’ up as a cop. Or a “sexy cop” since most Halloween costumes for ladies are nothing more than baring more. HA!

I got a little inspired and wanted to play around with some new konad plates I got.

I finally ordered from I HIGHLY recommend them. Kathleen is a pleasure to work with and shipping was fast. Gotta love it.

The plates I got…

I knew that I wanted to use China Glaze’s new Fortune Teller.

How amaziiiing is this color? It is black with orange glittery chunks. It looks SO good on its own. It really is a fabulous Halloween color. I got mine from Sally’s Beauty Supply.

I used a design on Konad plate m57.

I fudged up the pointer. My konad-ing skills STILL need some work.

Then I took China Glaze’s Style Wars and used a design on plate m61.

Can you believe I don’t have a black polish? 100-somethin’ polishes and not one is black? The horror! I ended up using Man Glaze’s The Death Tar. See my review here. A black polish would really make the art POP. So I guess I need to buy one.

I am really loving konad!

I was trying to do a fancy nail + face photo and look what happened?

I so messed up. HA!! I’m a mess, y’all.

Check out my konad tutorial here. Anyone doin’ any funky nail art for Halloween?

Or even dressing up for Halloween?

Tell meez!

    I'm going to try a few Halloween manicures. I don't have the Konad skills together yet, so my art will be free-hand! :)

    My favorite black polish is ChG "Liquid Leather", get that one for yourself, B. Black polish comes in handy more often than you think.

  • Bsquared86/Bsquared0408

    I have this polish called "Black Diamond" by China Glaze and i looooove it!

    I can't wait to use my bottle of Fortune Teller, but I'm saving that for a little closer to the day – I'll probably wear it blingy for a day or 2 & then mattify it.

    So far I've only done one Halloween mani, but it was maybe the best nail art I've ever done, neon orange with spiderweb tips. You can check it out HERE on my blog if you want =)

    Hey Brittany! I'm still a Konad novice. What a learning curve. The best black is Wet N Wild's black… opaque in one coat and only $0.99. Best one out!
