There are only 10 more days to Halloween and we hope that you’re just as excited as we are! Previously, we have shared with you our home décor tips for Halloween as well as some costume ideas inspired by some of our favourite celebs. Now, let us show you a simple Halloween nail art tutorial that you can do at home!
You’ll need: A base coat, top coat, nail polishes in the colour nude, white, green, orange, pastel blue, black and red, some nail art brushes, nail striper, dotting tool and some nail polish remover to clean up if you have to.
Firstly, paint your nails in this order; thumb – pastel blue, index finger – orange, middle finger – green, ring finger – white and pinky – nude.
Blood Drip: On the bottom half of your nail, use the dotting tool to make some red dots representing drops of blood. Then, drag the colour down to the tip of your nail and fill in the utmost tip with a little more red polish to complete it.
Skeleton: Use the dotting tool and black polish to dot some eyes on your ring finger. Then, use the same dotting tool to draw an upside down heart for the nose of the skull. Finally, use a nail striper dipped in black polish to create some lines at the tip of your nail.
Frankenstein: Use the nail art brush to draw a few triangular shapes for its hair and fill it in. Next, use the dotting tool dipped in black polish to create its eyes. Dot some white polish over the black circles and repeat again with a smaller dotting tool to create its eyeballs. Finally, use the nail striper to draw a horizontal line across for its mouth and complete it by drawing some stitches.
Scarecrow: Use the dotting tool dipped into black polish to create its eyes. Then, draw a little triangle for its nose and finally, draw a curved line to create its smile.
Spider Web: Use the nail art brush dipped into black polish and draw three stretched out ‘M’ shapes on one corner of your nail. Then, draw two lines across the web to complete it.
This nail art is perfect for the season and you’d definitely be the centre of attention when sporting these nails! Don’t forget to show us your recreations by tagging us at @lipstiqdotcom on Instagram or hashtag #lipstiqdotcom.
