Day 8. Glow in the Dark Slime Marbling (difficult)

If you have not marbled your nails before here is a link to my howto youtube video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aboD5jk1IqM

Please forgive the unfocused pictures. My camera just could not focus in the dark.

Start with one coat of white polish. Then two coats of glow in the dark polish. I purchased mine at my local drug store for $1.99.
Then tape your fingers to prep them for the marbling process. This helps to keep things cleaner.
Drop the polishes one in at a time.
Then with a tooth pick or dotting tool, make swirls in the glass. When doing this part, there is no right way. In fact the more swirls the better. Remember, you want it to resemble slime.
Once it is to your liking. Dip your fingers in. I dip two at a time. That way I use less product. And for this design it works great.
Remove the tape and clean around the edges.
Add a thick top coat and your done!
Glow in the dark!
Black light!
I love these! They are so much better in person. Trust me. Try these!

Day 7. Halloween Stained Glass (easy) Cheeky Plates

Start with one coat of white polish.

Then one nail at a time sponge on an orange,purple and green polish. You will need to sponge twice on each nail. Rotate the sponge on each nail.

You could clean the edges, add a nice top coat and be finished. The color combo looks great.

I added a stamp to give it a stained glass effect.

Add a top coat to seal the stamp.
