Today marks the penultimate prompt for the Challenge Your Nail Art Halloween challenge, and the prompt is actually one that I suggested, so I knew I had to "bring it" with my contribution. I opted to put a bit of a spin on these classic Halloween monsters by creating them as french tips. Can you identify all the spooky species?
So yeah, this look needed more polishes and tools than I could safely fit into one photo, but using the exact same stuff isn't necessary for recreating it! Basically, I used a light creme polish on my index finger, black on my middle, pale green on my ring finger, and glittery purple on my pinky, and then used a cleanup brush to perfect the french tip. I then lined the arch of the tip in contrasting colors for definition.
I added the little details in with either a detail brush or a striping brush. On my pinky, I used a 3D "puff" paint to create 3D eyeballs, and then added the red irises on top. Once everything was done, I sealed it all in with SV to protect and shine.
Oops! I almost forgot about my thumb! I added this character just for a bit of fun.
So did you figure them all out? My index finger is The Mummy. My middle finger sports Dracula. Frankenstein's monster is hanging out on my ring finger, and some witch left her stripey tights on my pinky! Last but not least, a startled-looking ghost haunts my thumb.
Hope y'all enjoyed today's prompt and nail art. Let me know how you did on the guessing game down in the comments. :)
