31 Day Challenge, Day 21 - Inspired By A Colour: "Electrified Web".

We've hit the "inspired by" section of the challenge, and it's definitely the pointy end of the challenge now. For today's challenge, I looked for inspiration by rummaging through my stash of as-yet-unused polishes (the 31 Day challenge has happily made quite a dent in the ranks of my unused polishes). I pulled out Revlon's Web Electrified, a bright metallic orange polish that always makes me think of spiders and Halloween. Bingo! Decision made. I grabbed my Halloween-themed plates from Bundle Monster and headed off.

Unfortunately I'd forgotten how badly those plates stamp! Ugh, they're too shallowly etched (one spider is even missing a leg!) and always difficult to stamp, so my easy Sunday manicure turned into a bit of a project. I do like the end result though. I did different designs on each hand, and kept it more generically spooky rather than specifically Halloween by steering clear of the "Trick or Treat" and "Halloween" designs.

I love this polish, it's such a beautiful glowy orange. I also really like the other polish that I have from the Spiderman collection, a gold called 1000 Volts, so I regret not buying some of the other colours while they were in the shops. If only I had an unlimited fund for polishes!


  1. ooohhhh Spooky. Completely remind me of Halloween :D Beautiful stamping (;
