Halloween Nails

We're getting into October now and you know what that means - it's time to make everything spooky!  These easy Halloween manicure ideas are sure to add some eerie cheer to your day.

1. Optional, apply clear base coat.
2. Apply purple along the tip of the nail as if applying a french nail. Allow nails to dry between any extra coats needed to achieve solid color.
3. Use a toothpick, nail art brush, or line paintbrush to paint 3 long, straight lines on each nail. Connect the lines with a concave line to make web.
4. Apply a clear or clear with sparkle top coat.

1. Optional, apply a clear base coat.
2. Apply orange to all nails. Allow to dry and apply as many coats as needed.
3. Use a toothpick, nail art brush, or line paint brush to add pumpkin faces in black. Be creative, it's like getting to carve 10 mini pumpkins without the mess!
4. Apply a clear top coat.

- use a q-tip dipped in polish remover to remove any mistakes along the nail edge or to clean up the "french" tip.
- french manicure nail guides can be used if you have trouble free handing.
- scotch tape can be used for any of the nail art for super clean lines, just make sure the nails are COMPLETELY dry before applying the tape.
- check for dryness by very gently touching two nails together, if there is any resistance or stickiness they are not fully dry.
