cute halloween nailsHere’s my final Halloween manicure for 2015 – Cute Skull! This design was partially art directed by my 4 year old girl, Anastasia, who likes all things cute. For example,  she preferred to dress up as a princes instead of a ghoul for Halloween. Fair call, she still meets the original tenet of this ancient celebration – to dress up as someone else to mislead bad spirits. It’s only in modern times that Halloween became associated with monsters etc.

So when Anastasia brought this Halloween bracelet to me a couple of days ago and asked “Mama, can you paint a cute skull like this on your nails?”, of course,  I had to try! She loved these cute Halloween nails I came up and even requested the same manicure for her little nails too. So if you’re still Haloweening (or maybe for next year), here’s a quick how-to:

  1. Paint all nails in black except your ring finger – paint that in white.
  2. To do the ribbons: with a striping nail art brush, first paint white stripes as pictured over the black nails. Over the white nail, paint with the colour of your choice (green, pink, blue and purple).
  3. To do the skull: on the white nail use a detailing brush and black polish to paint the outline of the skull. Once done, fill in the areas around the skull outline. Paint eyes, lashes, nose and add a pink bow.
  4. Wait till your design is dry and seal it with 2-3 coats of glossy top coat. Done!
