Bats Attack on Ombre Blue


Here's a spooky night time bats attack manicure! I was quite happy with the hand-drawn bats on the accent finger!


First I painted a solid base color using various shades of blue.


On the 4th finger, I used a sponge to make the gradient/ombre effect using a mid-tone and a dark blue. As always, I used a piece of tape to protect the skin around the nail so I would have minimal clean-up to do from the sponging.


After the ombre layers had dried, I used my black nail striper to draw the bats on. I started by drawing the outline of the bigger bat and then I filled it in. And I added two more smaller bats below it. 


On the thumb and middle finger, I added a black holographic glitter on the dark blue nail color and this color is so gorgeous that I couldn't stop looking at it while moving it under the light!


On the second and pinky finger, I topped the blue polish with a black chunky glitter to give it an extra boost. After applying top coat and we are done!
