BLOGTOBER DAY 2: EASY HALLOWEEN NAILS

     

Hi y'all, and welcome to BLOGTOBER DAY 2! 

I love adding a bit of Halloween spirit to everything I can this time of year, and my nails are no exception. It's so fun to play around with different nail polish colors and create Halloween themed looks. Since I've always loved painting my nails, and am a nail polish hoarder, I thought it would be perfect to create three (easy) Halloween nail looks to share with all of you so that you can keep your manis looking festive!

I am by no means anywhere near an expert at nails, so I wanted these three looks to be something simple that everyone can do! I hope you enjoy! 

(BTW: these nail looks are not perfect, uniform, or anything like that, they're actually quite a bit messy and all over the place, but I did them for fun to give you all ideas for nail looks that you can go perfect yourselves ♥)

1. Candy Corn Ombre Nails

I love this nail look! It's so easy to do and since it's ombre, you don't have the worry about getting straight lines since the colors are supposed to blend together a bit. Plus, I just think it's so cute! I mean, who doesn't like candy corn?



You Need:
Orange Nail Polish
Yellow Nail Polish
White Nail Polish
Clear Top Coat
Foam Cosmetic Wedge
Nail Polish Remover
Q-Tip

Steps:
1. Take a cosmetic sponge, and brush a stripe of each nail color onto the flat side of a cosmetic sponge in the order of the candy corn colors (see picture below).
2. Press the sponge onto your nail, dabbing until the color transfers. Repeat, adding more nail polish stripes to the sponge, and continuing to press onto your nail until you achieve your desired look and opaqueness.
3. Allow to dry for a couple minutes, then put a clear top coat of polish on top to blend colors together. 
4. Use nail polish remover and a Q-tip to clean up excess polish around finger, and you're done! 


2. SPOOKTACULAR NAILS

This one is super easy, and basically just plays on the traditional orange and black colors of Halloween with a couple of cute accent nails! 



You Need:
Black Nail Polish
Orange Nail Polish
Silver Sparkle Nail Polish
Toothpick, or pencil, or some other dotting tool

Steps:
1. Paint 4/5 nails black.
2. Paint remaining nail orange.
3. Top orange nail polish with silver sparkle nail polish. 
4. Take a dotting tool and the orange nail polish and put orange dots on one black nail.

3. Vampy Ombre Nails

I liked this one because it gave off a different, darker, vampireish Halloween vibe than the other two looks did. It's also easy to do!



You Need:
Red or Dark Red Nail Polish
Black Nail Polish
Clear Top Coat
Foam Cosmetic Sponge
Nail Polish Remover
Q-Tip

Steps:
1. Take a cosmetic sponge, and brush a stripe of red and black nail color onto the flat side of a cosmetic sponge.
2. Press the sponge onto your nail, dabbing until the color transfers. Repeat, adding more nail polish stripes to the sponge, and continuing to press onto your nail until you achieve your desired look and opaqueness.
3. Allow to dry for a couple minutes, then put a clear top coat of polish on top to blend colors together. 
4. Use nail polish remover and a Q-tip to clean up excess polish around finger, and you're done! 


And that's it for my 3 easy Halloween nail polish looks! I hope you all enjoyed this post and are inspired to try out one of these looks, or create a Halloween nail look of your own! 

Stay tuned for Blogtober Day 3 coming soon!
