It's officially one of my favorite months of the year! Mainly because it leads to one of my favorite holidays of the year, Halloween! In honor of this awesome holiday I will doing Halloween themed manicures that you could rock no matter what costume you are wearing.
We are starting this awesome month off with one of my favorite haunted places, graveyards! Here is the finished product:
Here is what you will need to complete this awesome look:
- Nail Polish: Light purple, Pink, White and Black.
- Tools: Sponge, Small brush, Acetone and Liquid latex (optional)
You will need a white base to start, I used Sally Hansen's - Get Mod. While you're letting that dry, if you have liquid latex, paint this around nails and cuticle area. You could also use tape to accomplish a similar end result.
Your next step involves the light purple and pink polishes as well as the sponge. You will be creating a sponge gradient for the background of your graveyard. Have the purple closest to your cuticle for a 'sunset' type look on all of your nails. See below for an example of this:
After this dries you will want to make hills on your nails using your black nail polish. Feel free to make them as different and unique as you want, they will just end up looking more natural. Here is shot of mine after I added my hills to them:
After that use the black nail polish, I used China Glaze- Liquid Leather, to create your tombstones. For normal tombstones start with a light touch pushing slightly as you go down your nail. For crosses, you will need a small thin brush and the same black nail polish and carefully paint the crosses at whatever heights you would like.
Put on a glossy top coat and you're done! However I'm sure it would great with a matte finish as well
As usual thanks for reading!
Until next time,
