Halloween Nail Art

I promised you nail art did I not?  I’m fairly certain that I did!  I was inspired by a manicure by CutePolish on YouTube.  You can view her videos here.  My handpainting skills are not all that I would love them to be (I’m still practicing!!!) so I knew that if I was going to recreate the cute mummy in her Halloween mani I was going to be using tape!

For this mani I used Bondi – The Limelight, Julep – Ingrid, and Barielle – Purple Hearts.  All of these polishes were great to work with, I love both Bondi and Julep’s cream formulas!  Purple Hearts by Barielle went on like a dream with great glitter spread in one coat and was also not very rough to the touch and did not require anything but a generous coat of HK Girl to smooth it all out!  Not to mention purple and silver and black glitter topper played right into my Halloween theme!

On the accent nail I did a coat of Illamasqua scorch and then using striping tape I taped off the design and painted over it with Mentality Rascal.  When I pulled the tape off I added the eyes and then covered the whole thing with HK Girl Top Coat!

I hope you enjoyed this Halloween nail art – I was pretty pleased with how it turned out!  Share your spooky halloween manis with me!  Come visit me on Facebook!
