Halloween Needle Drag: October Polish Party
The Polish Party theme for October is Halloween. I’ve never done a “traditional” pumpkin, ghosts, haunted house, bats, Jack Skellington, mummies kind of manicure. And it seems that this year is no different.
I was inspired by a beautiful needle drag manicure by one of my favourite nail artists, Nail Bamboo, and used the Halloween colours orange and black to recreate it. Google Translate gave just enough help for me to work out exactly how she achieved her look.
After painting one thick coat of the orange base, OPI A Roll In The Hague, I quickly added a couple of largish dots of black, MUA Shade 2, at the tip end using the brush from the bottle. I also added a dot of orange in about the centre of the nail. Then, using my finest dotting tool, I promptly swirled the colours around a bit until I was satisfied with the look.

For this manicure I’ve used:
- Base colour: one coat of OPI A Roll In The Hague
- Black: MUA Shade 2
- Top coat: Glisten & Glow HK Girl
