R.I.P. Halloween Nail Art and Tutorial

Hey y'all!  Today I have another Halloween nail art idea from my husband.   He's a pretty creative guy, I must say.

I used China Glaze Recycled,  Sinful Colors Black on Black, Sinful Colors Exotic Green, Sinful Colors Innocent and the light grey is a franken I made.  Do you see the rippling on my middle finger?  How weird is that?  It actually went away once it dried completely.  I had this happen a while back with some Tinker Bell nail art I did but it didn't go away.  My theory now is that it wasn't my top coat per se, I think it has to do with the heat from my lamp I use.  Maybe?  I dunno.

His basis for this was that my nails are kind of shaped like tombstones.  It is true though.  I like the black cat, I thought it was a pretty cute accent to an other wise morbid idea.  lol.

This is his drawing he did in my nail art sketch book.  Pretty cute huh?  ;)

I also made a quick little tutorial for you guys while I was doing these.  It's really a very quick and easy Halloween design.  If you were feeling adventurous you could add some shading or sponging to the tombstones to give them an older, creepier look and maybe a few little cracks.  Adding a little pumpkin would be cute to go along with the cat too.  There are a lot of options for this I think.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you like the tutorial.  :) XOXO
