Happy Halloween!


I'm not really one for fancy dress but I love a good horror, so I like to spend to my Halloween tucked up on the sofa in a blanket with a good movie; no tricks, just treats.  Speaking of a good horror, I've just finished watching The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix.  I had really high hopes for it after reading what a scarefest it was, how it would have me jumping out of my skin and would be unable to sleep at night.  As much as I enjoyed the series I don't think it was half as scary as it was made out to be, in fact I only jumped once during the entire series and that wasn't even at a ghost, ha ha!

Anyway I'm getting a bit sidetracked here, as I'm not one for fancy dress I thought I'd get into the spooky spirit with some Halloween themed nails.  As a huge Disney fan I decided to go with some Nightmare Before Christmas inspired nails and thought I'd share with you all how I created these Jack Skellington nails.

You will need:

Black nail polish
White nail polish
Top Coat nail polish
A large dotting tool
A small nail art brush

Start off by painting the ring finger nail on each hand white and the rest of the nails black.

Once the white nails are dry, use the large dotting tool with the black nail polish to create the eyes.  Dot the nail polish onto your nail dragging it down slightly to create a more oval shaped eye.

Then using the small brush dipped in the black nail polish draw two small lines between the eyes to create the nose, then draw a curved line along the nail and carefully cross it with small lines to create his stitched mouth.

By this time your black nails should be dry, you can then clean the small brush and then dip it in the white polish to create vertical stripes on each of the black nails.

Then paint your nails with a top coat and you are finished!

I love creating themed nails, they are such a fun way to get into the festive spirit without going to too much trouble.
