As I had promised here is my next post featuring some of the easy peasy Halloween nail art attempts I had. I tried several different ones but the perfectionist in me wasn’t satisfied so I only snapped pictures of the two I liked! This whole blogging idea gives me giggles, everything that I talk or post on here, is something I did years ago as a tween or teenager. Dressing up during summer break nights and posing infront of the webcam for pictures, making silly ads and videos, painting nails with characters on them. I always noticed I was better at doing others’ nails in comparison to mine. I guess i can twist someone else’s hands the way I want, just like a piece of paper. But hey practice makes perfect! Now that I don’t have many people available to me who will let me paint their nails I need to learn on my own 🙂 (one of my younger male cousins back in the day was only 8 and he let me paint his toe nails with mickey mouse character on them…he denies that ever being done to him cause now he is some macho hot shot guy lol)
Below are my Dexter TV show inspired nail art. These were my fave, I actually wore it the rest of the day and they make an appearance on my outfit of the day post this week 🙂 They were super easy and required only 2 to 3 minutes of effort! I am going to wear these for my halloween party unless between now and next Saturday I come up with a better idea! Will keep you guys posted 🙂
These were alright hence I didn’t keep them on but I guess with more effort these can be flawless too! Lets not give up hope 🙂
What are some of your nail ideas for Halloween?
So I have been slowly but surely increasing my Lana Del Rey H&M ad campaign collection…It is just sooo pretty , flowery and artsy each piece just speaks to me, asks me to wear it! So this past week I was like you know what? I need to come up with a nail pattern to match the most famous pattern from the collection. This is my first take on the pattern. I am hoping to try some more variation hopefully in the coming days and week! Dont you justtttt love this pattern from the collection as well? Scroll to the bottom of the post for how I created these nails.
Here is a photo of the top Pattern from the H&M Website
Here are all the nail Polishes I used to achieve this look. The two on the far left are from H&M store and the other two I am not sure probably came with some nail polish set cause I seem to not recognize them as top brand nail polishes.
Instructions: First paint your nails entirely white. Next take the purple or violet and make sure you rinse of excess nail polish on the sides of the bottle so we you have barely any nail polish on the brush slowly dab it on your nails in random spots. Then next use the blue and repeat the same process. Think of being an artist and doing tiny dabs on a canvas with paint that you are running out of but thats the effect we are are going for. Next repeat the same step with red! And viola you are done 🙂
Nail Art is pretty big on the web now. I recall my first infatuation with nail art was when I was 11. I was visiting my birth country and my aunt brought me some nail paint set! It was just like an actual paint set with tiny pots of nail polish with a few brushes. I recall drawing mickey mouse faces on my toe nails and my cousins’ toe nails. Ever since then I had been searching for a nail paint set but wasn’t really able to find one anywhere. If you guys know of some place that I can grab it from please let me know!
I got the inspiration from these strawberry nails from my fellow blogger: ilovegreeninspiration, who posted a picture of professionally done strawberry nails. Ofcourse this is my first time painting nail art in ages but hopefully the creative juices will flow constantly and I will only get better in time 🙂
Some more nail inspirations I am hoping to try out in a few days!
