Happy Halloween everyone! I haven't done any Halloween-inspired nail art this month because I simply haven't been in the mood. But we had out annual Halloween party at work on Friday and it got me excited about it. I decided to use two designs from Givenchy's Spring 2017 collection that incorporate colors Halloween colors for today's nail art design. So this is my ever so subtle nod to the Halloween season!
Winstonia Berry Liner Brushes
What's Up Nails Stripe Nail Vinyls
Zoya Cam (base color)
Zoya Willa, Serenity, Tara
OPI Squeaker of the House, We The Female
Hit the Bottle White Stamping Polish
KBShimmer Clearly on Top
I started with 2 coats of Cam and let dry completely. Then, using my thinnest liner brush I drew on the outlines of the curved patterns. I filled in using a thicker detail brush. I originally was going to use acrylic paint for the thick white lines but the white acrylic paint I own wasn't applying smoothly so I grabbed by white stamping polish from Hit the Bottle. This polish stamps so well and also works really well for freehand nail art. For the striped nails I applied my striped vinyls and painted on Willa, I then quickly removed the vinyls and cleaned up any bits that bled under the vinyl. I finished with a thick coat of Clearly on Top.
This was my final post in my October Inspired by Fashion series. I've really enjoyed doing it and it has helped me brush off the cobwebs on my nail art skills.
