Halloween Night! China Glaze - Ghoulish Glow

Yep, yep... everyone is out trick or treatin and I'm at home posting..... a Halloween mani from hell.

Does this look scary?  No... oh, okay.

Happy Halloween!!!

Here is three coats of Ghoulish glow all by itself.  It is translucent, kind of foggy looking.

And in the DARK!  The more coats you put on the higher the glow intensity.

Then I added some nail wraps.  These were a total bitch to put on right!  I'm not doing this again.
You can go ahead and tell me - "Ummm, Jenni, this looks like a five year old did your nails.."
Go ahead.  I won't be offended.  I might get defensive, but I won't be offended.  Plus my hands look terribly dry!  I'm cringing!

Horrible, horrible, horrible.  It took me an hour and half to apply these wraps and there was no way this was going to be wrinkle free.  The cashier at Sally's warned me that they were horrible.  She advised me not to go all the way to the edge because of peeling issues.  Well they started peeling at the cuticles instead.  On top of it, after apply Seche Vite, the entire nail wrap just start to pucker.  Testament to the Seche Vite shrinkage theory.

Here they are in the dark!  Neat, huh?

I painted black tips to hide all the wrinkling at the tips, which worked out okay.
But they still look bad to my standards.

In the dark again.
See the puckering from Seche? 
Black tips are Sinful Colors Black on Black.... an excellent black to own, I might add.

Here are my nails without the bottle so you can see how they really glow.
Well that's it for now!  I hope everyone is having a nice time tonight. 

Thanks for all the caring comments in previous post.  My hubby, animals and I survived the storm.  All of us are intact, no damage to anything or anyone.  I am content indoors with electricity and heat!  There are many things to be grateful for right?


  1. Aaaah I don't know you're talking about Jenni, those nail wraps look super cool!! Your pictures are perfect as always :) I always wanted a Glow In The Dark polish and this one looks very strong and glowing!

  2. Hahahaha! What the hell..? I am not blaming your skills at all here, I am 100% positive those wraps sucked bad time. Wow, and then Seche would not help at all! A nightmare manicure, Jenni. It's perfect for the occasion! Though you had a great idea with the tips, it improved the thing a lot. I understand you're disappointed by it but hey, on the bright side: it made a super fun post, and now we all know those wraps suck. Even if the cashier knew it before us, that doesn't matter!

  3. I've never tried nail wraps before, but from what I can see they look pretty good to me! Sucks that they were such a PIA to apply. I love the overall look! Perfect for Halloween :]

  4. I totally love the glow in the dark polish! But wow, the wraps? I have never tried to use those, I went ahead and jumped into Stamping with both feet and never looked back and love it! I can totally see what you mean about the shrinkage, wow! *eek*

  5. These look so cool in the dark. I didn't get that good of a glowing effect from Ghoulish Glow. I'll have to try it again. It's a shame the nail wraps sucked for you, because the designs are so cute!

  6. The puckering is pretty wild! I put Seche over my Sally Hansen candy corns wraps and didn't have any shrinkage, which I was worried about! That said, I DO still think these are pretty cute- and I bet from a normal distance they still look fab. And did I mention that I dig the glow in the dark effect? Very cool. :D
