This is Halloween Nail Art Challenge: Trick or Treat

How's everyone doing today?  It's the second to last challenge!  Today is "Trick or Treat."  For this challenge I did a different design on each nail, and used 19 different polishes!  I also used a Sally Hansen nail art pen in Black for the first time.  It definitely made things easier, but I did notice the black smudged off almost instantly.  This could be due to the lack of a top coat.  I did not apply one because I really did not want to mess up my hard work with black streaks.  I suppose I will do a test with the pen and top coat later on tonight when I am doing tomorrow's nail art.

On my right hand, A.K.A. the "Trick" hand, I did a spider on the thumb which connects to a web on the ring finger.  On my index finger I did an eyeball, on my middle finger I wrote "Trick", and on my pinky I did blood.  Originally on my pinky I did brains but they didn't turn out so well, and the black came off when I washed my hands.  Trust me the blood is much better!

I wanted to share a blurry shot because it really made the sparkly polish come out on the web finger.

My spider connecting with his web!  

The blood was actually the fastest and easiest thing to do, I just painted a free hand french tip and then used my dotting tool and drew some drops!

On my left hand, A.K.A. the "Treat" hand, I did a jack o lantern with my ring finger and thumb.  On my index finger I did a caramel apple, on my middle finger I wrote treat, and on my pinky I did a candy corn.  I am really happy with how the carmel apple and the jack o lantern came out.  You would think the candy corn would have been easy, but really it wasn't.  Taping is not my strongest suit, yet!

Jack o lanterns are way easier to draw when using the nail art pen!

Trick or Treat!

This is all of the polishes I used!  The most used to date!

This is my dog T.K.  I like to take my photos around 2:30 in the afternoon when the sun is just coming into our apartment.  Unfortunately TK loves to start his daily sunbathing around this time too!  Luckily he is a good dog and always moves to the side while I take my photos, and he gets right back to sun bathing when I am done!

If you have any questions about the polishes I used, let me know!  19 polish and brand names would take up a ton of space!


  1. I love this, how you did Trick on one hand and Treat on the other! Very cool. :)

  2. Neat! This looks like a lot of work, but it turned out so cool. I especially like the spider and its web, and the jack-o'-lantern. Looks like T.K. is ready for Howl-o-ween, too!

    1. Thanks Jenny! It is a lot of hard work, it quickly eats up your time! But I love it!
