It’s Day 5 of the Nail-aween Nail Art Challenge from datyorkLOVES/SassyNails. for me, and the theme is ghosts and goblins. There are 10 themes, and I have to complete all of them by the end of October, but other than that, it’s self-paced.
As far as Halloween nail art goes, this one is pretty basic, really just a few doodles with some nail art pens.
For my ghost, I used two coats of Ulta Snow White. The green goblin starts off with two coats of Sinful Colors Exotic Green, while the two jack-o’-lantern pumpkin nails are two coats of a no-name orange creme from a polish line called Paris. The black “Boo” nail is based on two coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl.
All of the black and white details were done with Nail Artist pens from Kiss, which came together as a pair. I bought them at Target. These types of pens are great, really no different than using a regular pen. The black was perfect for what I needed here; the white didn’t cover quite as well as I had hoped.
If you do something like this, definitely do a practice run where you’re drawing upside down before you start drawing on your nail. There really wasn’t a good way to hold my hand where I could hold it with the tips pointed toward me and still draw on them.
