Any excuse to get a bit arty is good with me, so being close to Halloween I thought I'd try out a couple of simple nail art ideas. I got inspiration for both of these after scouring the internet and finding similar ideas, so I can't take full credit!

The first look incorporates the two colours associated with Halloween: black and orange.
The second look incorporates my favourite Halloween character: Jack Skellington. Okay, no it doesn't look very much like him but I tried!

If you want to keep things simple, this first look can be left with the block colours as in the first picture. I, however, want to add a little detailing and using a fine brush (this ones from Avon!) I painted diagonal tips and lines on the ends of each nail to add a little extra to the finished effect.

This second look is my favourite nail art I've done in a long while! Using nail art pens from WAH, I used the brush end in simple strokes for the pinstripes, and the fine point to detail the face on my thumbs. It might not look the greatest, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out!
What do you think to Halloween inspired nails?
