Nailed it! – Spooky Style

1 week to go! I love Halloween, any excuse to get dressed up and be creative. So in spooky spirit I have read through Pinterest and found my top 3 Halloween nails that are super easy to do, using limited tools and skills.

Now to point out I’m not skilled by any means at nail art, so these are simple and effective nail designs using very basic colours and ‘tools’ that you can wear to in the office this week and next. I don’t currently have any green or purple vanishes but they also work with those colours if you have them.

Nail Varnishes:
Black – Crack Your Colour (similar)
Orange – Cocktail Colour
Red – I Heart Lasting
Nail Varnish Remover
Cotton buds
Toothpicks. (Or nail brushes if you have them)

Style 1: Vampire Nails


Boo! Spooky bloody dripping nails with not-so-scary vampire bat face on accent finger.
Step 1: Paint nails black and once dry use toothpick to do dots of red on top.
Step 2. While wet use toothpick to drag red varnish from the dots to edge of nail.
Step 3: Use white nail varnish (or tip ex) to dot on eyes and teeth on accent nail. Alternative you can do the same with green varnish to make slime nails… eewwww!

Style 2: Pumpkin & Spotty Nails


Simple and effective spots and pumpkin nails, not too gaudy and over the top, but still fun and in the Halloween mood.
Step 1: Paint nails black with accent nail orange.
Step 2: Using toothpick and black varnish draw pumpkin face using straight lines.
Step 3: Using toothpick again add dots of orange & white varnish (or tip ex) to index finger to be extra jazzy.

Style 3: Frankenstein Nails


These Frankenstein nails would also look great in green and purple as well! (Next time I’ll try with those colours)
Step 1: Paint nails orange.
Step 2: Paint half on accent nail white.
Step 3: Using toothpick draw lines that cross over looking like stitches with black varnish.
Which ones are your favourite? I hope these have given you some inspiration for some funky nails over Halloween. Don’t forget to check out Boot’s Top 5 Halloween Nail Varnishes – they’re gorgeous!
