Black + Orange - 8 Spooky Nights

This was really the theme for yesterday, but unfortunately I wasn't able to get it up in time. So here it is, a day late.
By the time I got a chance to paint my nails last night I didn't really have energy for water marbling, or flames, or just about any freehand design. Instead I tried my first scotch tape mani. A few weeks ago I got a bunch of scrap booking scissors. I think they're scrap booking scissors anyway. There are 12, and they all cut different patterned lines. I used the pinking shears to cut the tape, and I think it came out kind of like some jack-o-lantern teeth. The orange base is Sinful Colors Summer Peach (and it looks a lot more neon in real life) and I used CG Liquid Leather for the black tips.

I kind of like it for my first tape mani. It makes me think of of a funky French mani, but with teeth. It is hard to believe Halloween has passed and the 8 Spooky Nights challenge is over. I ran into a few hiccups with Sandy, but I had fun doing so many designs in the period of time and I hope you liked seeing them. :o)

Catch you all later!
