Ello ello sweetpeas! Midweek point has been reached at last, albeit a wee bit slowly for my liking! Woop! :D
Today I've another Halloween manicure to share with you lovelies, I really do hope to knock out (knockout? Would that even be the correct term? Sounds rather rude...Hmm) a few more before the end of the month,they're just too much fun! Hopefully hectic work & life will allow me to do so! This time I've gone down the vampiric route with some Count Dracula Nails <insert suitably evil laugh here>
I saw this nail design on Twitter & just loved it so much I couldn't wait to give it a try! To recreate these Count Dracula Nails all you need is a black, white & red polish plus a dotting tool & a nail art brush.
I started off with a white base which was two coats of NYC Pinstripe White, my current HG white polish, I've mentioned this little un a few times now but its pretty darn fab, opaque glossy finish & mighty cheap too!
Next for the Elvis-eque quiff of hair I used a nail art brush dipped in the black polish & drew the curved V like edge before filling in with more polish. For the eyes I used my dotting tool & simply dotted on two red eyes with the red polish, then added a smaller black dot on top of that before finishing off with a tiny white dot.
Lastly every vampire needs his fangs, I mean without fangs he'd just be an extremely pale, crazy eyed dude & these were just simply drawn on again with the nail art brush & black polish. Add a nice thick coat of topcoat for a glossy finish & you have some Count Dracula Nails!
Thanks for stopping by dear ones, have you created any Halloween inspired nails? Would love to see!
Lotsa love to ya!
