Digit-al Dozen Does: Halloween - Colorblock

It's Digital Dozen time again and this week we are doing a Halloween Theme!  I have to say that I am so excited about this week because I decided to go in a completely different direction.  I didn't want to just do the predictable Halloween nail designs. I wanted to do designs that were outside the box, but easy.  By "easy" I mean designs that anyone can do.

For my first design I took the Halloween colors and created a colorblock design.  The color that really sold this look was my brand new bottle of Illamasqua Load. Thanks to Sephora and Wrapp I was able to purchase my very first bottle of Illamasqua and, of course, it had to be the beautiful yellow-y, white one!  I am so glad that Load was my first because it is just so gorgeous!
This is 2 coats.  I did have a tad bit of streaky - ness, but the second coat and some settling seemed to clear that up.  I also added 1 coat of BL Hardwear for fast dry.



I taped off a section of my nail and added my first color, Milani Jiffy Orange, and another coat of Hardwear.  It was a tad difficult to capture the true color, it was too bright outside and too dull inside.



I taped off another section, added Milani Black Swift and topped it off with 1 coat of HK Girl and 1 coat Hardwear.






I love how this turned out! It's one of those designs that I can't stop staring at! It's just so COOL!!!! :)
