NOTD: Halloween Nail Art

With Halloween just around the corner, and today being Halloween Fancy Dress at work for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought it was the perfect time to share my Halloween nail art for this year! This was actually super easy to do, although I should have waited a bit longer for my base colours to dry, as the nail art pens did snag the purple a little..
I started with OPI Nail Envy as a base coat, then alternated OPI's 'Gargantuan Green Grape Matte', which took three coats, and 17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish in 'Woo Me', which was okay in two. I wish I'd used a slightly brighter purple but oh well - you live and learn! Then, I used my Barry M Nail Art Pen in Black to draw in the cobwebs, by first adding three or four straight lines for the main "spindles" and then filling in the strands in between with slightly curved lines. I gave the design a few minutes to dry before finishing off with JACAVA London's UV Inhibiting Top Coat* for a glossy shine, which sadly meant to matte effect of the OPI polish was lost. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out, although I'll admit my right hand is not this neat!

  2. This looks really cute! It freaks me out when adults go too far with halloween themed nails - but this is just subtle and amazing. Best halloween nail art I've seen so far!
