I wanted something a little simple and clean today, but still felt like doing some sort of (easy) nail art, so I came up with these. They’re really nice and subtle, but still something a little bit special. I think they turned out really well, and they’re a great alternative to full-on sparkle.
For the base, I used an e.l.f. polish that has no name (I got it at Target and it has a snakeskin-printed cap). For the dots, I used a small dotting tool and my new favorite glitter, China Glaze Champagne Kisses. So pretty!
I think next time, I’m going to try this with just single pieces of glitter for the dots. I think that would look really pretty!
These are kind of gross, but I absolutely love the way they turned out! These would be great for a zombie Halloween costume, and they’re actually pretty easy to do. I’m actually considering doing a tutorial for these if any of you would like to see it.
I started with a base of a nameless (I hate when they do that) e.l.f. polish I got at Target (the ones with the snakeskin caps). Then I mixed some olive green (OPI Uh Oh, Roll Down the Window), a little bit of brown (China Glaze Mahogany Magic), and some clear topcoat and sponged it around the edges to get that dirty, rotted flesh look. On top of that, I used Essie Matte About You to make it more skin-like. I mixed a blood color (because I don’t have a good one), and then added random cuts.
These might be some of my favorite Halloween nails so far. But we’re only halfway through the Twelve Days of Halloween, so maybe I can try to top these!
