Orange with bats
For my Orange nails I have a Halloween mani to show you 🙂
I really couldn’t work out what to do for my nails today. I don’t like orange nail polish, I don’t hate it, I just don’t like it. I feel the same way about yellow nail polish, I don’t like that either.
As I don’t actually own any “orange” nail polish, I decided to use the same polishes from my GOT polish challenge orange water marble mani, you can find that Here.
I started with a couple of coats of East Austin from Color Club, then using the cling film technique I applied Roguish Red from China Glaze. to make the orange coloured background.
For the bats I used Konad SP in black with plate 10 from the Moyou Suki collection.
I finished it off with Color Club topcoat, there is a little bit of shrinking but it’s not too bad. 🙂

I don’t really like orange nail polish, so I don’t have that many (by not many I actually only own two and I got those recently)… so I used the most orangey colours I have that meet the rules for the GOT polish challenge!

I used Roguish Red from China Glaze… it’s a very orangey red, it’s probably why I haven’t used it very much, it being to orange, it’s from the 2012 Halloween collection. The other polish I used is called East Austin and that’s from Color Club, it’s a light bright pinky orange, and it’s been sitting unused in my nail polish box for quite a while!
I tried out a lot of techniques with these polishes and none of them worked well, both of these polishes are rubbish for stamping, then I tried a gradient but the color club polish ate my sponge oO so that was a massive fail, and the polishes on their own aren’t orangey enough… I was about to give up on the challenge for this week.

I’m so glad that I decided to give water marbling another try! This is my second successful water marble 🙂 and I’m so glad that it worked so well!
I may have forgotten to tape up my fingers… So the clean up was an absolute pain lol!

the challenge for this week was a pain in the butt for me but it turned out well in the end 🙂 I just hope that the polishes I used are orangy enough!
