Halloween Nail Art

Happy Halloween! The creative juices were flowing yesterday and I was able to create some over-the-top Halloween nail art. I didn't really think it would be appropriate to dress up for work today, so my costume was on my nails!

Right Hand

Thumb: OPI Chopsticking To My Story with jewel-eyed Jack-o-lantern

Thumb: CG Zombie Zest over OPI Did It On Em

From Left to Right:
China Glaze Mummy May I?
Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance
Deborah Lippmann Funky Chunky
Sinful Colors Black on Black
OPI Take the Stage
OPI Y'all Come Back Ya Hear?
OPI Chopsticking To My Story
OPI Rising Star
China Glaze Ick-a-bod-y
China Glaze Zombie Zest
Zoya Shawn
OPI Did It On Em
Color Club Platinum Record

What do you think? I love how the Jack-o-lantern's eyes glow red like an evil zombie pumpkin. I also love how you can see a little bit of the unique texture of Funky Chunky. I tried to mimic that effect sandwiching silver glitter between layers of sheer polish on my left middle and pinky fingers. My favorite nail though is the polka dots and gems on my right index finger. It's just so fun and I keep rubbing my nail like it's Braille. On a side note: I got to see the tomb of Louis Braille this summer in Paris! He's buried in the catacombs of the Pantheon. Fun fact!

How will you be celebrating Halloween? What will you dress up as, and more importantly, what's on your nails?
