So now that it is October I am no longer classing it as too early for Halloween Nail Art. I went away in October last year and barely got to do any Halloween nail art, so I’m determined to make up for it this year. So the first Halloween Nail Art I’ve created this year are these simple Frankenstein nails. There are loads of tutorials out there for Frankenstein nails, but I thought I’d share my version of them with you.
So this design is actually really simple, you only really need to make lines and dots. My nails are quite small so I only created Frankenstein on my middle and ring fingers, I done stitches on the rest of my nails. So I started off with a base coat, and I used A-England’s The Knight.
Then I painted all my nails green. Now you can use any type of green you want, light, dark, somewhere in the middle. I personally used Essie’s The More The Merrier, which is a chartreuse type of green colour and which was on my Unfeatured Nail Varnishes List.
Then taking a small nail art brush and a black nail varnish, I used A-England’s Camelot, I drew small black triangles coming down from the top of my nail and then filled them in to create Frankenstein’s hair. Then using a medium sized dotting tool I placed two black dots towards the middle of nail to form eyes. Then switching back to my small nail art brush but still using the same black nail varnish I drew a small horizontal line across the bottom of my nail. I then placed three small vertical lines going through the horizontal line to create the mouth. And to finish the Frankenstein look I used a small dotting tool and a white nail varnish, I used Zoya’s Snow White, to place a small white dot in the black dots to finish off the eyes.
On my other nails I crated stitches like I did for the mouth but at different angles. I used the same black nail varnish and the same small nail art brush.
And finally I finished everything off with a topcoat. I am currently using Glisten & Glow’s H K Girl Topcoat.
