Spooky Nail Ideas For The Artistically-Challenged

Friday, October 10, 2014

One thing I've always been jealous of? People who can do their nails really well. Cause homegirl is pretty terrible at it; and by homegirl I, of course, mean me. Really though, how do you people create these amazing designs? Teach me your wayyys!

Now I may be nail decal illiterate and unable to polish my right hand without smearing everything (lord, help me!), but I want themed nails too, especially with Halloween approaching. I'm not going for anything too elaborate (that would be a big fail), but I'm already feeling so festive, my nails should be too! So if you're challenged like me or can't go completely all out because of work or whatever, try your hand at these 4 designs I was able to successfully pull off (so basically a kindergartner can do it).

Shout out to my ratchet lil DIY dotting tool at the bottom! You da best :)

Spooky nails are great, but so's a deep purple or berry shade for fall! My dear Deb mentioned that she love Bahama Mama by Essie, and well, now I'm polishing my nails that color. What Deb says I do #basic :)

  5. I love those little eyes for Halloween, and I'd wear those lace nails year-round!

  6. Can I please thank you SO much for this post?! I suck at nail designs and am so jealous when I see Insta posts with these fantastic DIY designs, so this is right up my alley!
    One of my favorite fall polishes is Bahama Mama by Essie, which is a dark burgundy color (not tropical as the name would suggest!). Another new favorite is Pin the Tassel by Essie, which is a metallic gray and is perfect.
    Awesome post!

  7. I love your nails! I used to paint my nails all the time when I was in high school. I had artistic nails before it every became cool. Now a days, I'm way too lazy to spend that much time on my nails. Hah. Oh, well. :)
