Frankenstein Nail Art

What's up, Buttercups?

Hooray for October and the excuse to do Halloween-themed manicures! ;)

I'm still pretty new at this. I don't think I have ever actually done Halloween nail art. So I started out slow and went with a Frankenstein fingernail.

To click or not to click...?
The nail polish I used for this Frankenstein manicure is Sally Hansen's Mint Sprint. This manicure was almost entirely my husband's idea. I think it is cute that he likes to help and I am grateful that he is supportive of my obsession. Maybe all those years of me supporting his obsession with his vehicles have paid off... :D

Anyway, we both felt that it was lacking something. We thought maybe I should add something to the other nails? Neither one of us could decide what I should do, so naturally I did nothing.

I used a Sally Hansen nail art pen to draw the black details. I'm not sure why I didn't think to take a photo of the pen. The pen is really easy to use, however, I don't typically get great results with it. You'll see what I mean on the close-up photo below. :-/

I really didn't want to post this close-up because it shows ALLLL the imperfections. The streaks and the bubbles! Not to mention the color in this photo is completely off. The other two photos are color accurate.

Although I let the nail art dry for a considerable amount of time, it still streaked when I went over it with top coat. Nevertheless, I got several compliments on my nails. The imperfections weren't very noticeable in real life, but of course you can see all the ugly details in the macro shot.

I have since stepped up my game in the Halloween nail art department and I'll work on getting those pictures up soon. Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Well Frankenstein's monster was far from perfect, so it kinda fits
