I am appalled at myself for starting my Halloween manicure so late in the month! I adore Halloween, but this year I am finding it hard to come up with ideas for nail art that I have not done. I could always re-do the very first set of Halloween nails I EVER painted in my life (here)? I look at them and I am grateful for the progress I have made in 5 years! I am starting off Halloween with some elegant stitches nails reminiscent of Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas. I decided to do multi-coloured tips because I get so sick of orange and black so it's nice to mix it up a little.
I started off with three coats of Essence - Wild White Ways* and the painted some fairly wide French tips in the shades: Essence - Don't Be Shy!*, Avon - Coral Beat* and Ceramic Glaze - Honolulu Hibiscus*. Using black acrylic paint, I painted a thin line along the edge of the French tip and then the "stitches". This part was kind of fun because there was no need for the lines to be straight.
Top it all with your favourite top coat and you are done!
What are your Halloween plans this year?
