Nail art novice: Halloween nails..

As many nail art novices know, sometimes your nail designs don't always go to plan. As much as I would be happy with a smidgen of artistic capability compared to the likes of DIY Nails and Nancy Mc Nails, it's going to take a lot of practice to even get near.

That's why I thought I'd share with you a nail art attempt that isn't quite perfect.. Because we're all only human, right?

At the beginning of the month you may have spotted this photo on my Instagram..

Turns out Halloween nail art is a whole lot easier when you're doing it on someone or something other than your own nails..

Quietly impressed by my first attempts I felt ready to tackle my own nails and attempt a bit of left handed action. All Halloween style. Obviously.

Nope.. Definitely not perfect.

Like I said, this wasn't exactly what I was aiming for. Turns out straight lines are hard, pumpkin mouths are tricky and thumb nails are pretty much a pain. But I wouldn't be an honest nail art novice if I didn't share a few of my hiccups along the way.

What are the other trials and tribulations of a nail artist that I should be preparing myself for now? Any other good Halloween nail art tutorials out there?


  1. Looks pretty perfect to me! I'm incredibly hopeless at painting my nails :P

  4. These are AMAZING! I wish I could do my nails like that!

  5. That is freaking awesome <3


  6. These look really good :D


  7. I think they look great. I really can't do nail art with my left hand and last time I tried I resorted to begging and begging my husband to help finish them off! He wasn't impressed! X

  8. Wow! I can't believe how well your nails turned out! I am so bad at nail art so it seems absolutely amazing to me haha. Lovely! And festive!
