SPOOKY GRAVEYARD NAILS

Products Used:

  • Purple is Salon Perfect "A Royal Affair" available at Walmart
  • Gray is OPI's "Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine!"
  • Silver tree, grave, skeleton, and house were done using Bundle Monster stamps
  • Bat charm is from Daily Charme
  • Black is OPI's "Black Onyx"

I always do my gradients over white unless I'm using two light colors. I find the colors come out more vibrant.

Make sure to check out Daily Charme for super cute charms! Their Halloween charms are so amazing and unique.

How to place the nail charms:
I put a dot where I'm going to place a charm then once the glue has dried a few seconds to where it's tacky I place the charm and add glue around it and once the glue dries I put top coat around it. That almost always makes the charm stay in place to the point where I pretty much have to pry it off my nail (It doesn't damage your nail as long as you have polish as a layer between the glue and your nail).

Here are just a few of their new Halloween nail charms!

BLOOD DRIP GLOW IN THE DARK HALLOWEEN NAILS!


Products Used:
China Glaze's "Ghoulish Glow"  from HB Beauty Bar REALLY glows. The picture above doesn't do the glow justice. And that isn't using a black light, I just put it up against my desk lamp and turned off the lights and that's how bright it was.

The blood drip vinyls from Hex Nail Jewelry are so easy to use! You can either just stick them on your nails or use them as a guide and paint over them.

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS NAILS

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so here are some nails in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness!

Ladies, please remember to get regular check ups and tests! Sadly, I know too many people with cancer and the chemicals that we're exposed to regular check ups are a MUST.

GLITTER GRADIENT NAILS

I'm so in love with this look! It's perfect for a special event, especially a Birthday or Vegas trip! It's also perfect for glitter lovers (aka me).


Steps:


  1. I started with my base coat then put two coats of white polish, my favorite white is OPI's "Put A Coat On" from HB Beauty Bar (Use my code MODNAILS for 15% off!).
  2. Once the white is dry I did the gradient using a makeup sponge while putting tape around my finger nails for easier cleanup.
  3. Both glitters I used are Julie G polishes available at Rite Aid stores or Jesse's Girl Cosmetics. Turquoise is "Rock Candy" and pink is "Crushed Candy"
  4. I sponged the gradient on four times and then added Seche Vite top coat from HB Beauty Bar.
This look is so quick and easy. 

Clean up tip: I mentioned in Step 2 that I put scotch tape around my finger nails before I sponged on the gradient to make cleanup WAY easier. Glitter is so hard to remove off your skin so the tape definitely helped a lot.
