Hi guys! Given that Halloween is ONE week away, I thought it would be fun to get into the spirit and share a simple Halloween manicure! I love split manicures like this because they look great but are so quick and easy to achieve. So, to achieve this simple Halloween manicure, I did a split manicure with the classic festive combination of orange and black.
OPI Chip Skip
OPI Nail Envy Maintenance
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Orange Zest (1 coat)
OPI Metallic 4 Life (1 coat)
Glisten & Glow HK Girl Fast Drying Top Coat
I’ve got to say, I am not a fan of the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri formula. I find it quite thick and goopy so though I only needed one coat because of how thick it applies it really doesn’t dry that quick. Anyways, that aside, the whole process was fairly successful.
Steps for a split manicure:
- Apply base coat and paint all nails with the first polish.
- Apply fast drying top coat.
- Once your nails are completely dry, patience is key, take scotch tape and apply it to each nail to cover up the bottom half. I always take the tape and stick it to my hands a few times to remove some of the sticky.
- One by one, paint each finger with the second polish. I remove the tape immediately after painting each finger.
- Apply top coat.
