A Different Kind of Vamp

Halloween is literally right around the corner, and though I’ve never been a super-fan of the holiday, as I get older, I kind of like it more and more. I get to play with my nails now, and getting creative with makeup and costume ideas is kinda fun! So yay for Halloween! Plus, the candy doesn’t hurt… This year, I’ve pretty much decided I’m going to be a vampire (not original, I know, but I just really want to wear fangs for a night) so I decided to test out a look on my nails. I saw this post on Instagram and found it so awesome, I wanted to create my own version.

I love how the lips turned out and I’m surprised I could even get them to look that good! I also usually don’t like matte nails, but I feel like they totally worked with this one. As for the colours used, I stuck to all Essie, using Dress to Kilt as the red throughout, the white is Blanc, the black is Licorice and the nude is Topless & Barefoot. Even the matte top coat is Matte About You. Plus, I can’t write this post without linking to this amazing tutorial from one of my favourite nail gals, Chalkboard Nails. She’s ridiculously good at what she does and if you were wondering what my ring fingeris,it’s smoke. Definitely not as good as hers, but a girl’s gotta try!

So, are these bloody and vampire-esque enough for Halloween? What are you planning to go as? Any other Halloween nails you’d like to see? Let me know! x
