Hallowe'en mani 2: Trick or treat nail art (or, messy freehand nails)

Trick or treat manicure for Hallowe'en nail art challenge with OPI Thanks a Windmillion and Suzi Says Feng Shui
Here is why I should not do freehand manis - just look at how I've ruined this one with my incredibly unsteady paws! I'm not even going to try to explain this mani or give you a how-to. If you can identify those rather indecipherable squiggles, you need to go join Mensa. The base I used is O.P.I. Thanks a Windmillion, following up with nail art pens. I also fished out a heart glitter on to each nail from O.P.I.'s Heart To Resist.
Unable to put up with the almighty mess of my own creation, I decided that the problem was overkill - I would re-do the mani, this time with fewer elements:

I pulled out O.P.I. Suzi Says Feng Shui - pictures look lighter and brighter; it is a slightly deeper blue, but a dustier one - and tried out fewer elements with the Konad nail art pens and ended up with a second mess on my hands digits. The natural-light picture to the right is truer than the direct sunlight picture to the left. 
I'm going to revert to my favourite stamping tomorrow and give Hallowe'en another go on my nails. Fingernails crossed, it should look a jolly good sight better than either of these.
Both these manis are my entry to the Hallowe'en Nail Art Challenge hosted by Kitty's Painted Claws and Racho's Nail Love (links in the thumbnails below). Which one of the two did you think was less uggerly?
The rest of this month's blog posts - just two more, then - are going to be devoted to Hallowe'en manis (though it leaves me with time for little else). To disturb you for the rest of the day, here's one more dekko at the first freehander I came up with. Do you think I need to be psychoanalysed a la Hannibal Lecter?

  1. I spot the Ice Creams, Sweeties and hearts on the first mani.. Guess I must pack my bags for Mensa or Nasa then.. Nasa I think.. So i can discover a planet and name it planet! lol :P

    Love the first one.. I don't think its overkill... Its cute... The second one's pretty neat as well :)

    1. Owwww! I've swallowed a piece of my oatmeal cookie the wrong way - naming a planet "planet" LMAO!!

      On a more relevant subject - thanks very much! I did think the second one looked too bland and "A Fish Called Wanda" rather than Trick Or Treat!

  3. They dont look like squiggles, they look like sweets, lollypop and icecream. And it is quite neat too. Im terrible with nail art, can probably just about manage to get French tips properly, and those wont be ao neat either :p
    The blue one seems a bit ho-hum though.

    1. I can't do French tips either! Yes, the blue is a bit "A Fish Called Wanda" - no more of those again!
