Ghoulish Glow

I love glow in the dark everything!! And Halloween gives me the perfect opportunity to take my glow-in-the-dark polish out of the vault :)

This manicure happens to feature all China Glaze polishes :)
I started with a base of CG White on White (the white base helps the polish glow really well.
Then I added 2 coats of Ghoulish Glow.
The designs were freehanded using CG Liquid Leather. I added the ghost's eyes with a dotting tool.

I was playing around with my camera for a while before I found the right settings to capture the glow and the designs. For those of you who have pre-set "scene" or SCN settings on your camera and struggle to photograph glow-in-the-dark nails... try the "candle light" setting. It even allows you to put it in macro mode. The firework setting on my camera worked well to capture the glow but it was fairly blurry. 

Only 4 more days until Halloween!! :D Stay tuned for more halloween designs..
