For a witchy halloween mani that looks like a dark cloud of black smoke dancing out from a black cauldron, look no further. 

Using CND's Creative Play polishes, CND Education Ambassador Ashley Craig gives you the steps to create this spooky, smoky nail art look.

STEP 1:  Apply one coat of CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer Base Coat.
STEP 2:  Apply two coats of CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer in I Blanked Out, and let set until completely dry
STEP 3:  Using either the polish brush or a small dotting tool, diagonally place a bead of CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer Top Coat and a small bead of CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer in Black & Forth to the center of the nail
STEP 4:  Drag CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer in Black & Forth in a figure-eight motion from corner to corner, allowing the color mix
STEP 5: Apply one coat of CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer Top Coat.
