Halloween abstract - Artsy Wednesday

In Denmark Halloween is a new thing, a little pumpkins and such, and it's by far not like in the USA.
So I was simply not inspired to do a Halloween mani, when it became the theme of this Artsy Wednesday - and the one I did LAST YEAR pretty much covered it, have a look if you haven't seen it.
But then I thought of how often many of you think of Christmas, when I do red and gold mani's, so I hope that these colors will send you Halloween vibes ;)
The base color is Absolute Nails Ready To Go 19 from the perfumery chain Douglas in Germany. The pattern I painted with various stripers, and the top coat is Seche Vite.
Da vi jo ikke har nogen gammel Halloween tradition her i landet, følte jeg mig ikke særlig inspireret, da temaet for denne Artsy Wednesday var Halloween, og jeg synes at den jeg lavede SIDSTE ÅR dækker emnet ret godt, tag et kig, hvis du har lyst...
Men så kom jeg til at tænke på hvor ofte mine røde og guldfarvede designs får flere af jer til at tænke jul, så jeg håber disse farver kan få jer til bare lidt at tænke Halloween ;)
Grundfarven er Absolute Nails Ready To Go 19 fra parfumerikæden Douglas i Tyskland. Jeg brugte forskellige stripere til mønsteret og toplakken er Seche Vite.

  2. "But then I thought of how often many of you think of Christmas, when I do red and gold mani's" are you talking about ME? XD XD
    Can I say that the first thing I thought after I've seen the pictures was "mmm, somehow Christmas-ish, yay" ? XD
    But after that I took a closer look and I was convinced by the photos, it's a much more Halloween-ish mani ^^

  13. I like this abstract manicure! I saw your last year Halloween manicure and I remembered how much I liked the witch! :-)
    I haven't made any Halloween manicure, I like playing with Christmas themes much more :-) And, I don't do anything special for the Halloween... But, as every year, I bought a lot of candies and I enjoy opening my door to the children that come with their "trick or treat!" :-) My husband is a teacher in a nearby school, so we got a lot of visits tonight (and they are still coming...!) :-) Witches, skeletons, Supermen, Batmen, pirates, Frankensteins... come, come, I still have some candies left! :-)
