Halloween Skull Nail Art Tutorial

Friday, 31 October 2014

Hello!  Today I've got a tutorial for a Halloween look that I have created in conjunction with Your Nails Magazine. This is a really fun nail art look that's easy and quick to recreate.



For this you will need:



  • White nail polish
  • Red nail polish
  • Black nail polish
  • Black nail art pen
  • Top coat
  • Dotting tools
  • Thin nail art brush
  • Orange stick
  • Diamantes (optional)
  • Nail adornments (optional)


To start, paint your nails a white base coat.



Using a thin nail art brush, paint a couple of straight red stripes onto your nails.



Add a second red stripe onto your nails.



Next, add some black stripes to your nails.



Add a couple more black stripes to finish off your stripy nails.



Next, onto your skull nails.  Start by using a dotting tool to add two large eyes onto your nails with black polish.



Use a small dotting tool to add small dots for the nose.



Use a black nail art pen (or thin brush and black polish) to draw a semi-circle for the mouth.



Carefully then add small black lines across the mouth.



Let this dry and then finish with a top coat to seal in your design.



I've finished off this look with a couple of red diamantes on the eyes and a cute ribbon nail adornment on my index finger.


Beauty Bay - It's Snowing on Main Street

Hello!  I've got a sparkly beauty to show you today.... this is the rather fabulous It's Snowing on Main Street from BeautyBay.com.  This is from their newly released Festive Collection.

This is a clear base chock full of tiny iridescent glitter.  I thought I'd jazz this up a bit and put it over a green gradient.  This is only one coat of It's Snowing On Main Street, I reckon you can easily build up a few more coats for some super special sparkle.  Look at the glitz!

This is such a pretty polish.  I think it will look great of pastel shades for a pretty sparkle, and also over dark shades for some super sparkle.  I really like this polish.
