Halloween Nail Ideas

Today's post is a few Halloween nail ideas.  I'm always on holiday for a couple of weeks in October so it's very rare that I have a moment before I go to talk about designs.  

Typically my clients would only be willing to have an accent nail with something in the theme but I wanted to show you what I came up with that would be quick and easy to do.  I also wanted to give you a few more suggestions that are always great.

If a client wants something over her enhancements just for the evening then I will often finish them with a acetone proof gel top coat and then use polish for the design so that she can then remove it after the event.

I wanted to mention a couple of stamping plates that I have in my collection that could be good to work into a design.  The first is Konad M28 with a skull and crossbones and a spider on.  I could have applied a spider onto my freehand web that I drew on the colour pop.

The next plate is Konad M65 for the roses design.  It's more of a subtle idea but I can imagine this teamed with black nails and the red roses on a white background... or even black roses!  I thought they would be good to go with a 'zombie bride' style costume.

The final plate is Konad plate M5 for the single rose.  I would apply this and have blood dripping from it or around it somehow.  I also think that those three lines could look like claw marks or scratches.

Last year I did one clients nails with one of the deeper Shellac shades and then created an ombre effect with the black CND Additive so that it was red towards the free edge.  It was effective as a Halloween design but still more subtle.

Your imagination could literally run wild with designs.  If the client is going to a fancy dress party then you could always look through somewhere like Pinterest to get inspiration. 

I hope I've given you some ideas for yourself or your clients!
