Nail Art: Hallowe’en Nails

Halloween Nails Nail ArtYesterday, I was a little tease and only gave you 3 clues on Swatch And Learn plus a small social-media reveal of the Hallowe’en nail art on my thumb.

Well, now I’m going to show you the full manicure of the Hallowe’en Nails I’ve been wearing for a few days!

To create this simple look, I used all 4 shades in the OPI Rock Goddess Mini Lacquer Set (the 4th shade was used on my thumb).

Then, I brought out a bunch of my beloved Bundle Monster Image Plates from different collections.

The images stamped in black were done with my almost-finished bottle of Konad Special Nail Polish in Black, and for Mr. Skelly Ton, I asked China Glaze Snow for some help!

Although I like all the designs, my favourite definitely is the skeleton because he looks like he’s throwing his hands in the air, and waving ’em all around like he just doesn’t care! 😉

Hehe, and when I show you that nail in closer detail, you’ll see how it appears that he’s throwing confetti in the air for a cray-cray dance party! (Yeah, that’s how excited I am about him. I never say cray-cray!)

I can also imagine him dancing to some awesome hip hop – haha, nothing like the music played by this skeleton I showed you a while ago on Instagram!

Also, as you can see, I trimmed my nails quite short, but look how much of the skeleton shows up! And see how even the fine details show up? I’m very impressed with the Bundle Monster image plate allowing me to pick up the image well with my Konad stamper!

If you’re new to nail stamping and are looking for a tutorial, please check out my nail-stamping tutorial for step-by-step written instructions & visual aids to make nail stamping simple! (When I wrote that post, I had literally just tried my hand at it, so I addressed many of the common problems that I ran into and how you can make stamping easier.)

Finally, I want you wish you all a HAPPY HALLOWE’EN! (It’s my favourite holiday!)

Have a fun (and safe) time whatever you choose to do!

What’s on your nails today? Do you dress up for Hallowe’en or do anything special? If you could create any nail art with a wave of a wand, what would it look like?

Edit: It’s cool when companies take the time out to retweet and/or reply to encourage ‘the little guy’! 🙂

      Hey Melissa!

      Thank you so much! Hehe, I’m still wearing this manicure today – I don’t want to take it off, even though Hallowe’en is over!

      Hey Lacqueerisa!

      Thank you, and I hope you had a Happy Hallowe’en, too! 🙂

      I love the image on my thumb, too. Haha, but the rest of my fingers are too narrow to fit the entire design. Thank goodness for my thumbs! 😉 And it took me quite a while to find an image that was small enough to fit on my baby finger.

      Hey Arathael!

      Haha, do I need to hide my nails from you in case you try to nibble my nails? 😉

      Hope you had a Happy Hallowe’en, too! What did you end up doing this year? Did you dress up or wear a fun manicure?

      Hey Lorraine!

      Thank you – hehe, the skeleton is my favourite, too! Had I not trimmed my nails so short, more of him would’ve showed up. But I was really happy that even this much of the skeleton still showed up on short nails!

    Happy Halloween! I like the pumpkin and the Trick or Treat on your thumb the best. For my Halloween nails I painted all but my ring fingers Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Gummy Grape and then painted candy corn on the ring fingers using OPI liquid sand in Solitaire, Jinx and Nicole by OPI Lemon Lolly.

      Hey Tanya!

      Love that you had so many great colours on your nails and even did a candy-corn design! 🙂

      If you took a photo of your manicure, I invite you to post it on my Facebook wall so that I can enjoy it (and so that other nailphiles can be inspired, too).

    OHMYGOD THE PLATES ARE AMAZING! 😀 I love the skeleton! ^^
    I’m thinking about might buy some plates from bundle monster, the only drawback is how long time I’ll have to wait until the drop down in my mailbox haha. But looking at this I’m starting to feel that it might be worth the wait! 😀

      Hey Amelia!

      Yes, Bundle Monster makes a lot of amazing collections with images that work on all lengths of nails. It’s easy to get images to work on wide, long nails, but this manicure just shows you that even if you have narrow nails like mine and you trim them very short, you can still get a lot of use out of the images plates!
