Reader, beware, you're in for a scare! (Goosebumps Nail Art)

I have to confess - I never read the books but I used to watch the TV show as a kid and I can still remember the drippy green logo from the opening credits which is what inspired today's mani. I even managed to paint this design on my right hand using my left and it looks nearly as good as my right-handed effort!


I used Collection 2000 Spangles as my base colour, then used nail art brushes to paint on W7 Black for the drippy details.
Spangles nowhere near as yellow as it looks in these pictures. It's actually a perfect slimey green colour!

  2. ohmygosh, as soon as a saw the first picture without even reading the title I immediately thought goosebumps ! tbh. I never read the books or watched it (too scary ! loll) anyway, this mani is lovely and your drips are sooo perfect too, did you draw them on with a brush or use a dotting tool?

    I remember my daughter being scared to death of this show , She was taken to see the live show in Blackpool and ended up coming out it was too scary.
