Hello lovelies! How are you doing on this fine Saturday? I slept like 11 hours last night, so you can imagine how tired I was. I'm going to see the new James Bond movie tonight and I'm pretty excited. Has anyone seen it yet? Are you planning to go see it? Today's post is all about Halloween and I think it's going to be my only nail art for the holiday this year. It's actually a design I came up with last year but it didn't make it on the blog until now. It's sort of a cute take on Halloween. If you are a fan of creepy designs you can check out this post from last year.
So these are my vampire candy corns. Aren't they cute? I tried to film a tutorial for them but it came out unusable. That's why they look a little uneven, because I was trying to do them on camera. Since I can't post the tutorial, I will just tell you how I did them. I started with a base of white polish. The one I used is Moyra 03 and it's a thick, gloopy mess. I really need to get a new white! After it dried I sponged an orange (Essie Orange, It's Obvious!) in the middle and a yellow (NYC Lexington Yellow) on the tips of the nails. Here's a shot of my left (dominant) hand where I didn't draw any vampires and only had the candy corns.
I used white and black polish to draw the faces of the vampires. For the eyes I used a few different sized dotting tools and the rest was free handed with a small nail art brush. I think this is an easy design that anyone can do and it doesn't have to be perfect to look cute.
I hope you liked my little vampires. Please check out the other Halloween designs from the Sat-ART-Day Club!
