A Very Totoro Halloween

      I Reallllly wanted to combine Totoro and Halloween and I debated a bit about how to do it. I saw this beautiful totoro cookie art on google after searching Totoro Halloween done by @evelindecora. I love her design so much I had to have it on my nails. I love the way she did the little pumpkin around the last ones’ head like a lamp. So cute :3

I used Essie Lillacism as a base color but my camera cant photograph light purple (or red, 😦 poor phone) it always shows up grey!! It’s actually a really pretty color in person and I’m sure you can find a million other well photographed swatches that aren’t grey.

These are a little worn before I took pictures, this is probably 1 week of wear. Maybe more I’m not sure I’ve had a lot going on here and no time for nails!! surprising as that is. I don’t think I’ll do another Halloween but I will probably do some autumnal themed stuff.

First I did my glow background with 3 polish colors: Pure Ice Home Run, Sally Hansen Pool Party, and China Glaze Ghoulish Glow. I did the glow polish for the background so that when I painted over it only the ghosts would show through.20161006_225020-copy I outlined them with blue and purple acrylic paints (doing their tiny eyes and mouths) then filled in the gaps between them for a random watercolor feel. If I messed up I just used a slightly wet q-tip to rub the mistake away.20161006_225501-copyI love how these little dudes look so happy!! I’m stuck on cute Halloween nail art. I’m doing some Ghibli Halloween nails next!!
