IG Collab Manis - Creme and Holo Splatter, Watermelons, and Halloween Bat Tip Nails [Part 1/4]

I did a collab mani quite a while ago with @nailsandthings_ on Instagram. We decided on holo splatter, but with a twist.

We did a black creme background, splattered with Color Club Cloud Nine, Kismet, and Cosmic Fate, then over Color Club Beyond, splattered matching cremes!

The creme colors I used for the splatter on my index finger and pinky are Julep Courtney, China Glaze Dance Baby, and Zoya Arizona.

I used my syringe splatter technique for these, and I just love how they turned out!

I also did a twin mani with @amazing_nail_design. She picked a watermelon design she wanted us to recreate.

I wasn't sure about it at first, but I really like how this design turned out! It was super simple! I used a shiny topcoat over my watermelon and seeds, but matted the rind and I just love how this looks with both finishes in one!

Lastly for today, @paintedparadisenaildesign and I decided that it was time to start pulling out the Halloween manis! So we went with striped French tips (with one accent nail fully striped) in green, orange, purple, and black, then added some bats to the French tips!

For my stripes, I used Zoya Carter (purple), Ruffian Fox Hunt (orange), and China Glaze Tree Hugger (green).

I'll have more IG collab manis tomorrow!
