Awesome Halloween Nail ideas From Illamasqua

DIY nail art fan? Illamasqua US Nail Art Ambassador Fleury Rose has blessed us with 3 great nail art ideas to try for Halloween. Or even for a True Blood premiere… I mean, I’m thinking about doing the evil eye nail this weekend just for shits and gigs.
Evil Eye

Colors used: Nail Varnish in Scorn, Scorch and Serenity 
Tools needed-
Dotting tool, tooth pick1. After applying base coat, paint nails with two coats of Scorn black matte polish. Allow nails to dry for 3-5 minutes
2. Pour out a small amount of scorch onto tin foil. Dip the large end of a dotting tool into white polish and dot onto nail. Repeat step 3 times on each nail. Allow white dots to dry 3-5 minutes.
3. Pour a small puddle of Serenity onto foil. With the small end of a dotting tool dip into rubber blue polish and dot in the very center of each white circle. Repeat on each nail. Allow to dry 3-5 minutes
4. Dip the point of a tooth pick into Scorn and gently dot a tiny black point into the center of each eye.
5. After drying add optional top coat for a shiny finish, or you can keep it matte.

Vampire's Kiss

Colors used: Nail Varnish in Aorta and Boosh, Precision ink in Scribe
Tools needed-
small brush
1. After applying Base coat, paint nails with two coats of Aorta and let dry 3-5 minutes
2. Dip small brush in Boosh, and paint a tiny triangle at the top of the nail. This will create the bow of the lips.
3. Next, paint an oval shape in the center of the red nail to create the opening of the mouth.
4. Allow to dry for 5 minutes
5. Draw on fangs and lip highlight with Precision ink in Scribe. (Precision Ink is a long-lasting eyeliner, that is SO strong that it can double as a nail art pen!)
6. Allow precision ink to dry 3-5 minutes and apply Top Coat.
Witching Hour

Colors used: Nail Varnish in Phallic, DWS, Scorch and Blow
Tools needed-
Small brush, disposable makeup sponge1. After applying Base Coat, apply a thick coat of Phallic. Allow this layer to dry 3-5 minutes.
2. Dip the small brush in Blow and create a tiny crescent moon. Next dot on very tiny stars with the tip of the brush. Allow to dry at least 5 minutes.
3. Pour out a small puddle of Scorch, then a small puddle of DWS next to it so they are touching.
4. Dip the corner of your makeup sponge into the polish so you get a little of each color on the sponge. Gently dab on clouds.
5. Allow to dry 3-5 minutes, and apply Top Coat.
*Important note: Letting polish dry in between coats ensures that your nail art won’t smudge when you go to do the next layer!
