Quick and Easy Halloween Nails Tutorial


Happy Halloween everyone! I'm sure most of you are at home and prepping up for your respective Halloween parties. If some of you guys have unfortunately forgotten to dress up your nails, here's a lightning fast nail art tutorial that's done in 30 minutes!

As always, prevention is better than cure so be sure you have the following nail products at home:

Vampy nail polish (I've used a deep purple shade)

Orange nail polish
Black Nail Polish
Top Coat
Optional: Base Coat
Nail Art Brushes

Alternatives to nail art brushes: Toothpicks and old eyeliner brushes

Read the rest of the tutorial after the jump!

For the base, I've used the following:

Revlon Colorstay Base Coat
Revlon Colorstay Nail Polish in Bold Sangria
Revlon Colorstay Top Coat

 STEP 1: Paint your nails and let the polish dry up for at least 5 minutes before proceeding with the rest of this tutorial in order to prevent accidental chips on your nails.

For the Jack O' Lantern nail art, I've used the following:

Revlon Colorstay Base Coat
Orly Mini Nail Polish in Life's A Peach
Shu Uemura Nail polish from the Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Collection in Karl Black
Revlon Base Coat

 STEP 2: Warm up your hands and your drawing skills by practicing on a piece of paper. In here, I have practiced on a blank nail plate. If you have it, it's much better but it's not really necessary. :)

STEP 3: After your warm up, start drawing on your thumbs. The quickest and easiest way to achieve the drawing is to create outlines of the eyes, mouth, and head of the Jack O' Lantern, then fill in the gaps with black polish afterwards. I've used a glittered black polish, hence the gritty look and feel of the drawing. If you have plain black polish, that's much better.

 In 10 minutes, I'm done drawing on both of my thumbs. By the way, you have the option to draw Mr. Jack O' Lantern on a different fingernail. As for me, I thought it would he would look cute on my thumb. :)

 STEP 4: Let your nail art dry up completely then seal with a top coat.

 Voila! We're done! And you can now spend the rest of your time doing your hair and makeup, and preparing your costumes!

 It's not really a full blown artwork and it's not as nice compared to other Halloween Nails in other beauty blogs but the goal here is to just dress up your nails for the season in no time at all!

Yes, master, I am done.

That's all! Enjoy your Halloween parties! :)
