Halloween Challenge #1: Classic Orange and Black


So I decided a little while ago that I was going to join in with the Halloween Nail Art Challenge in the Challenge Your Nail Art group on Facebook.  Here are the prompts (and a very cute graphic!):

I saw this a little while in advance, giving me plenty of time to prepare.  And it's only 4 prompts, so there is some small chance that I may actually finish it.  So how many manicures did I prepare in advance?


I am a fool.

I am DETERMINED to actually do this though, so I have just been furiously painting my nails, and here's my first challenge manicure!


Yes, I did indeed attempt a water marble.  Yes, I have lost my mind.  I think it's not my worst attempt though...?

I used Barry M Black and Max Factor Bright Orange.  Then I added W7 Orange Dazzle on my little finger nail, and painted the stem of my pumpkin with Barry M Spring Green.  I'm pretty happy with this actually :)  Although, I confess, it's only on the one hand...  Must remember to take it off before work tomorrow!

Have you done any Halloween nail art yet?  I'd love to see - leave your links in the comments or post a picture on my Facebook page!

And don't forget to take a look at all the other orange and black manicures!


  1. Hahahaha, you and I can be fools together! I had it all set up what I wanted to do for each prompt the day the prompts were finalized! So I had plenty of time...and you know how that story ends!
    Anyways, I like the water marble a lot, and that pumpkin french tip is a nice addition!

    1. At least I'm not alone! And thank you :)

  2. Beautiful watermarbling! The pumpkin is cute too!

  3. I think this is a good attempt at a water marble! Those suckers are hard to do! :) I didn't get any prompts done ahead of time either, you're in good company. ;)

    1. And don't I know it lol, I've almost ended up throwing my glass of water at the wall during previous attempts.

  4. Especially for being a rushed job, this is really good! Love the water marble and the pumpkin!
