HPB Presents: Halloween a Zombie pond


Hobby Polish Bloggers presents: Halloween
My last Halloween manicure was such a success that I decided to do another one. I understand you want to see more of them, so I deliver to you, a Zombie pond. *cue scary music* So with the girls at Hobby Polish Blogger, I present to you: Halloween.

For this manicure I used Sally Hansen - 540 - Jell-ous? to help out on the decal making I started out with two coats on the Uber Chic stamping mat, and did one stamp and continued to build Sally Hansen - 540 - Jell-ous? between the stamps.
All in all I used 9 coats on the index finger with one to two arms for each layer of polish. Ring finger and middle finger had 5 coats and my little finger had the least amount of coats with only 4 coats (!!) I also applied some splatter using Makeup Mekka - Strawberry Daiquiri on the second layer before using the splatter.

    1. It's a really cool polish, and it was playing nicely all the way. No streaking to the designs either so very happy with that. Was great for making decals as I didn't need any top/clear coats on the stamping mat.

    1. Do you get tired of all the green, purple, and orange nails too??

      Technically Sally Hansen - Jell-ous? is red, but it does show up pink over naked nails. :D

  6. That is such a cool effect!!! but that is also a lot of coats.. how did the drying go and did you have any lifting with that many coats???

    1. SH - Jell-ous? dried like any clear polish, very quickly, and even with this many coat I did not experience any lifting or chipping in the 4 days i wore it.
      The decal had a rubbery feel to it after leaving it to dry for 5 min, I was able to pull it to fit better over my nails and used clear acetone to "trim" the excess. It did not budge and survived like glitter.

  9. LOVE IT! I really want to try a pond manicure as this looks so good, but I fear all my polishes are too opaque as that's usually the kind I go for, alas it may call for a bit of nail polish shopping. :)

    1. You could dilute them with a clear polish, or if you want an excuse for nail polish shopping I fully support you. Everyone should at least have the primary colours in this level of sheerness.

  10. The pond idea is so clever! I never would've thought to mix pond and halloween. Darn you're a smart lady!

    1. I can't take all the credit for it. There is an author writing under the pseudonym Darran Shan, and in the Darran Shan -series he is describing a pond filled with bodies. Darran Shan is a Vampire, so...
      So I thought why not a pond of zombies...

  11. Ah, the elusive pond mani! Every time I see one I love it and swear I will try it, but it has yet to be. If I am reading you correctly you've added an interesting twist and created this by way of decals instead of directly on your nails, yes? Regardless, it looks very cool and I love the unexpected at Halloween!

  12. Really neat! I still haven't tried a pond mani yet, so I suppose I should add it to my to-try list lol

    1. I would recommend doing it. if you make a decal out of it, it will be so much easier for you as well. :)

  13. I don't like zombies (sorry!), but I like your pink pond mani. It's perfect!
