It's Polish Party time again - Yay! This month's theme is Halloween... Well how could it not be?
I was a bit stuck for what to do, because you can often see a lot of the same things when looking at Halloween nail art, and whilst I haven't steered too far away from 'the norm', I hope I have come up with something a bit different.
I wanted to keep to the same colour pallet on all my nails as I didn't want too many colours all trying to compete with the others, so once I had decided on Frankenstein nails I chose the others based around that. So obviously I had green and black. I then paired those with silver and a bit of glitter.
I painted my thumb and ring finger in the limited edition green from Barry M that was out in the summer from Superdrug. Then my middle finger and little finger are painted in Sterling Silver from Models Own. To finish off my base colours I used Knockout from Revlon on my index finger.
For the details on my silver nails I have done some simple stripes and dots. I used the Models Own nail art pen for the stripes and a dotting tool dipped in my Revlon black polish. On my index finger I kept it simple with a coat of Startlet by Jessica. It's such a pretty multi toned glitter that would go with anything.
My thumb nail is a little bit more fancy. I have done the ends of a plaited nail just on the tip. I added a diagonal stripe in silver first and then another in the opposite direction in black. As you can see from the photograph the silver over the green has actually gone a greenish gold colour. It's a happy accident as I really like it, but obviously wasn't meant to be like that.
On my ring finger we have a not so scary, but rather cute Frankenstein. I simply added some dots of black for his hair near my cuticle and then wiggled the polish around to create the cover required. I then added two white dots for his eyes with a smaller black dot in the middle. Using my nail art pen with striper I added his little stitched up mouth.
I really enjoyed doing this design even though it wasn't what I had originally planned. Don't for get to check out the other girls taking part in Polish Party this month x
