stripy halloween nails

This year I seem in a bit more of a halloween spirit than normal. My brother is getting married on Saturday, so my other brother and his family are coming here from Wales. We have decided to have a little impromptu Halloween party for the little'uns although I think I am more excited than them. Thinking about it, this is probably where my excitement is coming from.

I was looking through my nail varnish drawers, when I noticed this nail polish and instantly knew what I was going to do with it. Don't you just love it when that happens?!

illamasqua gamma

I used Illamasqua 'gamma' for the base, which is the most incredible Orange shade that I have ever seen. Usually I use striping tape to create sharp lines and designs, but this time I decided to use black and keep that as part of the design. I think these are nice and simple but not too OTT if you don't want an extreme Halloween design.
