Halloween Nails!

OK so I haven't personally done Halloween nails. What I did recently was a sort of warped/backwards French manicure.


I used a grey polish for the base and silver for the tips. This was after almost a week and the photograph actually makes my nails look much better than they were. In reality they were very badly chipped by this stage - I picked the less chipped hand to photograph.

Anyway during my trawling of YouTube I came across these videos which show various Halloween nails. The first is from one of my favourite YouTubers... as mentioned in a couple of previous posts - Torrin Paige!


And then the second video is one that I discovered by chance - it was recommended to me based on me liking Torrin's video... anyway - I Have A Cupcake



Aren't they the cutest nails you've ever seen? Kind of Chibi-ish... and completely beyond my talent... I can barely paint a straight French tip! (Trust me the photo hides it but they were very wonky) In fact come to that I'd struggle with Torrin's designs. Especially when painting the nails on my right hand... because I'm right handed - my left hand can't cope... or my brain just can't cope!

Ooooh, I like the silver polish. Must try to get some of that. (Tried gold once. At first I liked it but then someone said it looked like nicotine stains and I went of it)

The silver polish is by Barry M but it isn't their normal silver polish. It's a new one from their nail effects foil range. It's a £1 more than the regular Barry M polish.

I'm led to believe that their normal silver polish is kind of glittery whereas this one has more of a sheen to it - I've also got the gold one to try

So fun!!!

And yet another reason why I really must stop gnawing on my nails. I don't wear polish because it just draws attention to how ragged and unprofessional they are...

I like your nails! I did something very similar a few weeks back. Visiting from Write on Edge. :)
