Halloween Nails

I wanted to try a Halloween nail tutorial so I enlisted my Mum as a hand model. We have an annual Halloween party so I considered it a dry run for next weeks festivities. None of us has decided what to go as yet.. any suggestions are very welcome! Anyway… I saw a picture of Jack-O-Lantern style nails somewhere and was inspired. I wasn’t sure how easy it would be so played it safe with crackle glaze over most nails and a statement nail art finger. I think I will try some different styles during the week.. maybe ghosts or witches… hmmm…
The pumpkin pattern was actually really simple to achieve with the nail art pen I have so I think I could be more adventurous with my next try.
What I used..
Models Own polish in Orange Sorbet
Barry M Crackle Nail Paint
Models Own Wahl Nail Art Pen
Let it be known that the extra bit of nail art (on the left)… entirely the models idea! Not that I’m not totally on board but it gives you an insight in to the mind of the woman who raised me and perhaps why I am like I am…

    Awwww I love those nails! I have to have a go at re-creating those! I'm usually quite boring when it comes to nails, but these dark nights are a perfect excuse to experiment! Thanks for sharing xx
