🎃 Days until Halloween: 4
Welcome back to my mini Halloween series. Today’s post is all about nails. I’ve been seeing some pretty impressive nail designs on Instagram and Tumblr, and really wanted to attempt to recreate one. The images below have all been taken from Tumblr, I especially love the cats in the pumpkin design. The skeleton is also really creative.
I decided to keep my design simple though and paint the CSI inspired bloody fingerprint pattern. This pattern was actually really easy to recreate and perfect if you’re in a rush or haven’t got anyone who’s able to help you paint the other hand. If you’d like to see how I got these Halloween inspired nails, then keep scrolling 🙂
Step One: Begin by painting two coats of white nail varnish.
Step Two: Once the white coat is completely dry, pour some red nail varnish onto a sheet of paper. Dip your index finger into the red varnish, then remove any excess paint by dabbing it on the sheet. Next, gently press your red coated finger onto your white nail varnish to create fingerprints.
Step Three: Remove any excess nail varnish which may of landed on your fingers using nail varnish remover, then once dry, apply a coat of clear nail varnish to add some shine.
And there you have it, really simple and easy to do Halloween nails. Let me know if you’ve recreated any designs this Halloween, I’d love to check it out. Tag your blog below 🙂
