Finally came round to doing some Halloween nails!
I’d pretty much decided that I was going to do a monochrome design, then after I painted my nails in black and white all these ideas started flooding in. On the index finger is a nice little polka dot design using Halloween-y colours. Then I had to do the blood drip nail after I found a perfect tutorial for drip drop nails.
For the ring finger I wanted to do a spider – obviously very apt for Halloween – but this was the hardest thing ever! “It’s just a spider” I kept telling myself, but that didn’t stop me from having to re-do it more than a couple of times. I got there in the end…sort of. Trust me, it looks a lot less crab-like than my previous attempts!
I got the idea to add a clown when Lacquered by Blue Vanilla did a Clown Manicure and said that she found them creepy, to which I completely agreed. I’ve always found clowns super creepy so this was my tribute to that.
I pretty much used all Barry M’s (White, Raspberry, Gold Foil) apart from Sally Hansen Model Behaviour for the clown’s blue eyes and Nails Inc Tate – for an extra red nose and an Orange by H&M on the polka dots.
Before taking off the Matte Glitter manicure I couldn’t resist trying to add a little touch of Halloween to it:
That skull face, stitched face, ‘thing’ was again something that I came across on Pinterest. I have a Halloween Nail Art & Tutorials board over there with so many ideas and tips if you’re looking for any inspiration. I’m not sure if I’ll be doing any more designs until the big day but it was a lot more fun than I expected, so we’ll see… 🙂
Have you done your Halloween nails yet?
