I’ve been itching to do a Halloween mani and I finally snuck in some nail art time. I decided on doing a cute and simple Frankenstein mani. I’m just going to get right to it.
Here is what I used:
Finger Paints – Black Expressionism
Zoya – Snow White
Orly – Here Comes Trouble
(I also used Revlon Wicked Star, but forgot to include it in the photo)
This is what I did:
Applied 2 coats of Revlon Wicked Star as my undies
Applied 1 coat of Orly Here Comes Trouble
- You can skip the underwear and just use 2-3 coats of Here Comes Trouble, I just wanted to take a shortcut in terms of glitter removal.
Once Here Comes Trouble dried I applied Seche Dry Fast top coat
- I applied the top coat as a layer in-between my base colors and my nail art incase I make a mistake it’s easier to quickly clean off with remover without ruining the base color.
I then used a thin, but thick paint brush to paint Frankenstein’s hair using Black Expressionism.
I used 3 different sized dotting tools – biggest to small to dot the eyes. Black, white, then black again. You don’t really need each dot to dry before applying the next as long as you’re careful and don’t press down hard.
For the mouth, stitches and brow bone I used a super fine brush using Black Expressionism once again.
On my remaining nails I randomly painted more stitches using the super fine brush.
Finally I used another coat of Seche Dry Fast top coat to seal everything in.
- Make sure everything is dry, especially the eyes before applying the top coat as it will drag your polish and smudge the lines.
I really enjoyed how this mani came out! The super glittery base of Orly Here Comes Trouble really made it pop and gave my Frankenstein some glamour. I think his bride would appreciate this version of him
