Happy weekend all! Since I’ve been in the Halloween spirit all week, I wanted to share some fun nail ideas to go with your costume looks come October. I’ll start with my most recent creation:

TiM BuRtOn-InSpIrEd

I have this spooky look  featuring Jack Skellington and Frankenweenie (thanks to Goldie Starling for the idea!) on my nails as we speak and get compliments on it every where. It’s a little time consuming, as it’s all by hand, but a really fun process.

You will need:

Black and white nail polishes, black and white stripers (Rite Aid sells them for 1.99 each), top coat and tiny little googly eyes (I got mine at Michaels).

I call this a Sexy Spiderweb look. Paint all of your nails a glossy black (no chips!) and cover the thumb nails in multi-colored glitter. Then, using a silver striper, create the spiderwebs on your ring fingers.

Lil Frankies are another inspiration from Goldie Starling on Youtube. That girl is super talented! I wore these last year with my Bride of Frankestein costume.  

Mermaid’s Tail is perfect for a sea creature of any kind. I painted my nails a medium turquoise shade then covered them with white, iridescent glitter polish (at least 2 coats). I added the purple rhinestone for the bling factor.

November Plaid is super cool for a nerdy school girl outfit or even just a everyday. You will need an apricot-gold polish base and black, white and gold glitter stripers (again, Rite Aid sells those babies for $1.99 each!)

Dead Man’s Tale is perfect for any sea-faring pirate. You will need red and black nail polishes and black, gold glitter and white stripers. I used the end of a bobby pin to get the points on the X’s and the top end of a pen for the skull head, dipped in white polish.

Let Skele-Bones dance across your fingers with any base color of your preference (I actually wish I had picked a darker color like plum or black for this) and a white striper polish!
