Here's a tutorial for yesterday's Halloween themed nail art. I mentioned that I freehanded the design but this time around I created the tutorial using scotch tape as I know straight lines can be hard to master with a brush.
Orange Nail Polish - Essie Fear and Desire
Purple Nail Polish - Models Own Pukka Purple
Green Nail Polish - Sally Hansen Grass Slipper
Black acrylic paint or nail polish
Top coat - preferably fast drying
Start by painting on your base colour and topping it with a thin layer of your top coat. Wait 5-10 minutes, or until the polish is completely dry before moving on.
Place two strips of tape on your nail to mark off your first patch - it can be absolutely any shape but I've gone with a triangle.
Paint on your first colour and immediately remove the tape.
Now you've got your patches! If you're a whizz with a nail art brush, you could get to this point without using tape.
nail art brush and first, outline the patches.
clean-up brush dipped in pure acetone.
And you're done!
