CYNA Halloween Challenge: Classic Orange and Black

*Press Samples Used in Post*

Hi everyone! Today starts another Challenge Your Nail Art mini-challenge and today's theme is Classic Orange and Black for Halloween. I kept in theme for this mani...sort of...with a little purple thrown in the mix! :) Earlier this month, Stef over at Fairly Charming did this amazing creepy eyeball mani, and I've been dying to try it out. She has been killing it with the Halloween manis this year, and I've pretty much wanted to recreate all of them! Mine did not come out nearly as amazing as hers since my hand is never too steady with dotting, but it still looks pretty cool. It looks more like a bunch of dots than eyeballs, but yeah...oh well.

I started off with a base of Zoya Willa, from the new Wishes Collection that I will be reviewing soon. It is a great black creme! Utilizing a range of different sized dotting tools, I then I used white (OPI Angel With a Lead Foot) to make the base of my eyeballs. Then I used 2 different shades of orange (OPI Where Did Suzi's Man-go and OPI A Roll in the Hague) and purple (OPI Funky Dunkey) to make the colored part of my eyeballs. Finally, I finished them off with teeny dots of Zoya Willa to make the pupils. Like I said...they really ended up looking like Halloween-y dots, but still looked pretty overall.

Here are the rest of the prompts for the challenge!

So do I get credit since I used black and two different oranges if I threw the purple in? #rulebreaker Be sure to check out what the other ladies have in store for today's challenge! You can also see their work on Instagram using #challengeyournailart. Thanks for looking everyone!
