Glow-in-the-dark Cute Frankenstein + Drippy Nails;

hey~~ :)

So, I'm excited to share this mani with you cause ... I actually like it. :D It's still a few days before Halloween, but I have another non-Halloween mani planned for Halloween ... so I decided to do a Halloween mani a bit early :P (Wow. Could I have used 'Halloween' enough in that sentence? hahaha.)

For the the base of Frankenstein & for the drips, I used OPI's Who The Shrek Are You? (you can still see the Shrek-color green around the edges of the drips) and then I painted Serum No 5's Day Glow over it. I previously swatched Day Glow here if you want to check it out. For Frankenstein, I free-handed the details with a black nail polish.

Here's the mani .. glowing in the dark~ You gotta give it a second for your eyes to readjust ... hahaha. It's weird because the mani would only 'glow' in certain dim lightings. When I was in the complete dark, it wasn't glowing very well. /shrugs. I don't know .. but I still love it :P

Another picture, obviously not color accurate, but I really like it. I posted this on instagram (@kahtreenahh) yesterday after I finished the mani.

Anyway, the weekend is just around the corner. Hope the rest of your week goes well :)

Have a good one!,


  1. Really really cute! I think I'm going to try this on my daughters for Halloween!

  2. That's the cutest Frankenstein I've ever seen! Hihi.

  3. OMG I can't even tell you how much I love this!!! So adorable!! :) Oh and I find if you charge your nails under a black light they will glow SO much more so its easier to take a pic of them :)

    1. thanks Kristine~ I'll have to try that next time :D

  4. Uwaaaaa this turned out so cute! Especially the Frankenstein head one <3

  5. This is super cute!! The layering of the darker color under the drips makes them look 3-D. I think if I do drip nails, I'll add shadows in because of the cool effect your mani has going on!

  6. Omg I'm so in love with this mani!!! Very nice job!
