Then And Now - Halloween Haunted House

Greetings All!

Today I have another post recreating one of last year's Halloween manicures. One of the manicures I was proudest of was a haunted house 'scene', with trees and gravestones. I even attempted a bit of a gradient, and I was pretty pleased with myself at the time!

Fast forward twelve months, and I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself all over again! I created the same basic scene, with a few little twists.

Bonus picture of my left hand!

And here is last year's attempt. Please be aware there is a serious lack of cleanup going on here!

I've kept the pictures small, because they are terrible! I used liquid eyeliner last year for the design, not so far away from the Barry M Nail Art pen I used this year. My trees are probably the most obvious improvement, and I really like how they turned out. Also, thank goodness I got the hang of doing a gradient!

I do think it's nice to be able to look back and think "yeah, I have improved". Maybe I'll revisit this design again next year!


  1. Amazing gradient btw - very jealous... mine never look this sophisticated!

    1. Thank you! As you can see, I used to be terrible! It just takes practice.


I love it when you awesome people leave comments! I read and treasure them all, and I'll always respond to a question as soon as I can.
