Weekend Nails: Halloween nails

It's halloween already!

I wasn't able to join the nail art contest for i have been busy for the past couple of days. I was only able to do my nails yesterday. This is what i came up with.

This is a random design for i want you to be able to have as much choice as you want in picking out the design that you want to do as your halloween look.

I am not able to do a tut for all of the design but just some of them. So i'll start with the pinkie.. the spider web.
Procedure: (i suggest that you use polish to make the colors really pop)
  1. On an orange base color, apply white on the top half of the nail with 3 sharp edges like in pic 1.
  2. Then trace the edges with black polish like in pic 2.
  3. Make vertical lines like in pic 3 to connect the web.
  4.  Then just fill the space with horizontal lines for it to look like a real web.
Next is the Ring finger design.. the pumpkins!

  1. On an orange base color, trace 2 or 3 (depending on how long your nails are) circles on your nail.
  2. Then fill it with black polish except for the circles. I did it this way because i want my pumpkins to have that bright orange color. If you apply orange on a black base, it may not look as bright though.
  3. Then put the eyes & mouth on your pumpkins.
  4. For my last touch, i decided to put a star design on the bare part of my nails. I topped it with glitter polish but i wasn't able to capture it.. gomen ne..
 The Middle finger has that party ghost look!

  1. On a white base color, add a small strip of orange polish on the side...either right or left.. whichever is easier for you.
  2. Then draw a ghost face on the white side.
  3. You can add any decoration to spice your ghost up... I decided to add a bit of real glitters at the top & 2 stars. It's ought to be a ribbon but i forgot where i put my ribbons yesterday. (-_-")
  4. Then on the orange side, i drew green half circles at the sides then a strip of yellow polish where the white & orange polish meets.
I'll skip the pointer finger since it is easy.. just draw 2 equal circles to serve as the eyes & a bigger circle just below the eyes for the mouth.

Then the last one is the thumb... just a plain jack-o-lantern look.

Just draw the face of the jack-o-lantern just on the side. Then i put yellow stripes at the other side just to spice it up. I apply a single white strip of polish to cover up the unevenness of the yellow stripes...

There ya go!
This would be my nails for the halloween. If i would have the time i would go for the ring finger design. I think it is really pretty fun. But if i won't have the time then i'll probably just go for the pointer finger...hehehe

Anyways, hope that you are enjoying day!
