|Halloween Nails: I lost an eyeball!!!!!!!!|
-dotting tool/ toothpick/ bobby pin/ flat-head pin
|Pro dotting tool & Cheap dotting tool|
-fine brush/ tip painter
|Essence tip painter|
-Black Nail varnish (I used NYC 119 City Blackout €1.99)
-White nail varnish (I used an essence tip painter €1.99)
-a bit of quiet time (put kids to bed!!!)
Start by painting nails black. I used 2 coats to ensure an opaque base.
To make the eyes:
Drip some white paint onto your foil and dip your chosen dotting tool into the paint and dot white dots in pairs onto nails. Try not to put the pairs too close together (like I did, sigh) and allow to dry
Then drip some black polish onto your foil, dip your dotting tool into the black and position smaller dots in the center of the white dots. Allow to dry and top with a top coat to protect the dots.
I didn't use a top coat and whilst I was washing the kids hair, I managed to loose an eye :(
To do the stitches:
Using a fine brush dipped into white nail varnish, draw a line across your nail, either in a curved line or a straight line. Allow to dry slightly.
Then draw shorter,finer lines perpendicular to the first line. Allow to dry and seal with a top coat.
Super easy. Super quick.
