Yes, I know my nails don't look perfect...but here is my Halloween manicure for this year! Polishes Used: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On (White), Maybelline ColorShow Twilight Rays (Black), Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow (Yellow), Pure Ice Don't You Wish (Glitter), Nails Inc Holland Park (purple), Nailtini Mai Tai (Orange), Sinful Colors Nail Art Black (Black details) & LA Colors Art Deco White (White details)
To begin this manicure, I painted all my nails a base color. My thumb was painted black (the polish I used had gold glitter in it), my middle finger was painted orange, my pinky was painted white & my ring and index fingers were painted purple. The thumb was the easiest, once the black base dried, I followed up with one coat of my glitter topcoat. For the index finger (spider web) after the purple base dried, I free handed a spider web with a nail art brush. The nail art polish was quite goopy and difficult to work with, so sorry about the slightly messy spiderweb. I also added some of the glitter topcoat over the spiderweb. On the middle finger (polka dots) I used a dotting tool and the black polish to evenly dot my nail, I also used the glitter topcoat on this nail. For the ring finger (jack o' lantern) I used a white polish to paint the shape of the pumpkin before the orange to make it vibrant. Again, my nail art polish was goopy (I really need to get some new ones) and It was difficult to get the perfect lines I was hoping for. For the jack o' lantern I free handed the triangle eyes, nose & the mouth. Lastly was the pinky finger (candy corn ombre) which I ended up switching the yellow and orange, I guess I thought candy corn went white-yellow-orange. For the ombre, I painted 3 stripes on a makeup sponge and sponged all over my nail until the colors blended together.
I hope this manicure can give you some ideas for your Halloween nail art!
