It's that time of year again when I scrape at the back of my brain to think of new and original Halloween nail ideas that don't litter Google Images. Whilst I can't guarantee the true originality of these nails, I can't recall seeing these before. I did a version of these last year as part of a Halloween nail wheel but I decided to update the finger bone nail design by going nude with the base and adding shadow to make it that bit more profesh.
I used Barry M Vanilla from the Matte collection for the base. It is what I would call a dingy nude, which I think is perfect for a Halloween manicure. I used Barry M Cotton for the main body of the bones, or distal phalanges if you'd like to get complicated and then Barry M Black for the outline. I mixed a bit of Cotton and Black to get the grey for shading but this of course can be done with just a normal grey shade but I'm lazy and didn't want to go back upstairs to get a grey shade.
I'm really pleased with the look of these nails. It's still very much a Halloween manicure but a less in your face and cliché. Don't worry though, there will be plenty of cliché nails in the next few weeks, just you wait and see!
