Fall is upon us and Halloween just a few short weeks away. While Halloween is not my #1 absolute favorite holiday, (it’s top 5) it is definitely exciting for me because it means dressing up, fun costumes and that the Holiday Season is soon approaching. With the spooktacular day on its way I look forward to doing Halloween inspired makeup and while I’m not skilled in nail art – I do enjoy decorating my nails with fun colors and glitter for the season. In combination with a few of my girlies from The Beauty Council, I bring to you my Halloween Nail Art inspired by Pumpkins, Fall leaves and Halloween.
I love simplicity and since I am not blessed with artistic drawing skills on a small canvas (i.e. my nails), I decided I would go with what I knew. I pulled out my favorite colors for the season, a black striping nail polish and a nail art fimo (which I originally spelled “femo” and my spell check kept saying it was wrong. lol) pumpkin that I had in my collection and worked on my nail design. Overall, I loved the colors and I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out.
I started with a base shade, using China Glaze’s Cruisin as my base color. Then I took OPI’s I Knead Sour-Dough on a sponge and dabbed the shade onto the ends/tips of my nails. I take my time in doing this and then once I apply the brown shade, I add the orange (Cruisin) to my sponge and apply together to blend the colors.
My Accent Nail: For the nail art I used Kiss Brush On Nail Art in black to create my tree, Kiss Brush On Nail Art in Neon Green to add a few Green leaves on the tree and then dabbed Sinful Colors Splatter Spell glitters on parts of the branches.
To finish up the look I added Sinful Colors Splatter Spell Glitters over each of the other nails concentrating the glitter towards the tips of my nails and finished with my Ciate Speed Dry Top Coat. Easy and peezy – pudding and pumpkin pie. lol
I hope you enjoy this simple design and if you recreate it, I would love to see it. Since I’m kind of nail art challenged, I think this is easy to create, festive and definitely cute. Don’t forget to check out the other lovelies in the Beauty Council and their creations – links below 😀
