Hello everyone! It is Halloween! So how many of you are dressing up and going for parties? I'd love to dress as pirate (Jack Sparrow, maybe?) or go as Tim Burton's Mad Hatter, or some cool anime character or a made up character, someday.. someday.. Hahahaha!! Well, that's how I see Halloween as, dressing up fun thingy - but that's not what Halloween is, right? So feel free to educate me about what Halloween is and perhaps next year, I will be able to come up with a look that's more Halloween appropriate.
I was almost going to skip this year's Halloween nail art due to lack of inspirations and with the increase rate of brutality and crimes, I didn't have the mood to do anything gory (not a fan of gory stuff to begin with). So instead of horror related, I wanted to just stick with something more fun.
My inspiration came from a post written by Brittany Watson Jepsen, about simple Printable Animal Mask. I thought it was really cute and the simple mask-do could also be great props for fun photography! But what immediate caught my eyes were the lovely clothes the kids were wearing! Hahaha! Sooo adorable ♥ :)
Inspired by the little girl's outfit, I changed the main element on the outfit and replaced it with pumpkin. Haha!! Though on the outfit was actually little scattered images of roosters, I was seeing pumpkins and knew right away that this is the direction of Halloween Nail Art I would love to do this year. A mix of fun and a little bit of something different.
To give this nail art a more Halloween feel, I took the inspiration from the black and white striped dowel modifying it to Black and White Candy Canes. Which I think would work seeing that treats are given out on Halloween. As for the rest of the nails, they were inspired by the boy's outfit. I think it matches well with the accent nails :)
And there you have it. My Halloween inspired nail art for this year. I do love this look very much, so I hope in some ways you have enjoyed it too :) Have a great Halloween, everyone! ♥
