Samantha’s Mid-Week Inspiration: Halloween Nail Art

I am back with some mid-week inspiration for you and today I thought I would get myself in the mood for Halloween and do a Halloween nail art look! As always I have put together a step-by-step tutorial of how to achieve the nail art yourself so if you want to find out keep reading! In order to achieve this nail art you will need Nail Varnish in Stance, Gamma, Load and Geist. You will also need Precision Ink in Abyss, a sponge and a dotting tool.


Step-By-Step Tutorial:

Step 1: Paint all nails in a coat of Stance. This will act as a base to the nail art.


Step 2: Take a small amount of Gamma onto the sponge and dab this onto the top half of the nail to create an ombre effect.


Step 3: Its now time to create the halloween designs. I used Precision Ink in Abyss to create the fine black details as the small brush is amazing to create fiddly parts of any nail art! I first put a thin black tip onto each nail and then created the designs.


Step 4: Next I took Load onto a dotting tool and created the cats eyes and the door and windows inside the house. Load is perfect for this as it is a mix off white and yellow.


Step 5: The last stage of creating the Halloween designs is to go back in with the Precision Ink in Abyss and paint on the window panes and the centre of the cats eyes.


Step 6: The final stage is to paint the nails in a top coat. I used the UV top coat Geist to add a more spooky halloween look to the nails.


I really hope you have enjoyed this tutorial! As always if you recreate the look yourself be sure to share a photo of your nails on the Illamasqua social media channels so I can see! #Illamasqua on Instagram, @Illamasqua on Twitter or post a photo on the Facebook Wall.

Until next time, Samantha x
