NAILS | Spook-tacular #MummyMonday

I am just squeaking this in for ManiMonday, but in all fairness I did at least have the photo up on Instagram this morning! I tried to get this post up last night, but I ended up calling it a night at 10pm and then being rudely awoken at 2am by Hugo and Hemingway fighting. On me. Multiple cats I tell ya!

I'm not intentionally trying to be an unofficial spokesperson for nail polish brand Prim+Proper, but I just really love these polishes and I have been really surprised by how much I keep wanting to use them! Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year and I actually love doing Halloween more than Christmas nail art. I've done a mummy or two before, but never on allll my nails so here it is!

Mummy Nail Art

To get started with this manicure, paint your nails two coats of Prim+Proper "Fresh Powder"* and then take a black striping polish and draw random lines all over the nail. Make one section a little bit thicker and colour it in so that your mummy eyes have a place to go.

To create your mummy eyes, first dot some white polish followed by a red polish like Prim+Proper in "Fireweed"*. Wait a solid 10 minutes before applying your top coat as the incidence of smearage is HIGH with lines and dots and you are DONE!

Anyone headed to a Halloween party this weekend? Are you planning on dressing up?
