3 Easy DIY Hallo-Manies
Halloween is less than TWO weeks away and I know I'm not the only person out there counting. Hastily, we pick out our Hallo-Weekend outfits, and to be honest, time is simply running out. This year, whether you're going for funny, cute, sexy or scary-- don't just dress head-to-toe... give your fingers some love too! Use the holiday as an excuse to get whacky with your fingernails because, unfortunately, it's only socially acceptable SO many days of the year to draw mummies on your thumbs. UGH.
Here are my top contenders for quick Hallo-manies for the 31st...
The Oh-So-Cute and Oh-So-Dead
Okay, so maybe I'm biased towards mummies... but is there a better way to start? Start with a light pink to add some girly flare (or maybe a lavender perhaps if you're feeling the purples this fall as I am). For the bandages, liquid eyeliner would give your mummy the perfect wraps in seconds. Older eyeliner would potentially even be a better option, to keep the black light and rustic looking, as well as a great way to recycle old makeup! Follow with black and white nail polish for the eyes, and don't forget to give them that confused zombie daze we all know and love!

Translating well to the everyday style (if you don't want to go TOO Halloween-y in the office) this geometric modern-art-esque look can be pulled off at any age, any style. With a lime green polish sharply cut by the black, all you need is two colors (or again, perhaps just some liquid liner), and some limited precision for the simple diagonals. The Frankensteinista is a great DIY option, whether your passing out candy, trick or treating, or getting down on the dance floor this Halloween.
Halloween is SUPPOSED to be creepy, remember?! This one is for the daring devils out next weekend, ready to commit 100%. Don't even think about forgetting the red veins, and maybe even add some yellow or light green as well. You want these eyes to look as sickly and scary as possible. Flash these bad boys out and you'll for sure get some stares... and your nails will be staring right back!
