Halloween Nails

A few days ago, my cousin asked if I would do her nails for Halloween, so I went looking for a few ideas, and practised some on a nail wheel. I did a few last year, but tried out a few different designs this year.

I decided to do my own nails as well while I was on, and this was what I came up with.

I think the only one I was a little disappointed with was the ‘Boo!’ on my right hand, because I’m right handed and struggled to write it with my left!

And these are how I did my cousins nails.

For both mine and my cousins, I used Barry M Block Orange and Black, Models Own Purple Blue, Pukka Purple and Snow White and Ciate´Mojito. I also used Barry M Lychee and red acrylic pain for the dripping blood on my little finger, and I used OPI Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI? for the base on my cousins right ring finger. For all of the details I used the Models Own nail art pens.

The ‘patchwork’ nail was inspired by The Nailasaurus, check out the tutorial here.

Have you done any Halloween inspired nails? I love all the possibilities there is!

Halloween Nail Art

So, it’s Halloween in a couple of days, and seeing as I’m not going anywhere to get dressed up, I didn’t see why my nails shouldn’t be dressed up! I’ve spent a few days looking around for inspiration, and couldn’t choose one set design, so I mixed and matched, with Frankenstein, spiders webs, Dracula, a sugar skull, mummies, and a Jack Skellington pumpkin.

The polishes I used were Nails Inc Seven Dials and Candy Orange, Barry M 47 Black and 288 Silver, and Models Own Pastel Pink, Beth’s Blue, Snow White, and Hedonist, plus the black Models Own nail art pen.

For the last couple of days I’ve barely moved from my bed thanks to a horrible cold – boo! Today it was driving me a little mad just doing nothing (other than working my way through the last few episodes of Desperate Housewives) so I decided to reorganise my nail polishes a little. I currently store my polishes in a drawer in my wardrobe, (which is quickly running out of space) and until I can find a couple of racks, the only way I can see the colours of some brands is to pick them up to find it, so I spent today painting self adhesive labels, and sticking them on the lids, now I can easily see where each polish is!
