Funky Halloween nacho nail art

Hi everyone! Only one more week till Halloween.

I think this might be my final Halloween nail art.. I didn't do that many this year but I hope that you like at least one of the few nail designs that I did.

This design is one I've been meaning to do since I got into nail art. I love triangles. I have no idea why. When I doodle, I doodle spiraling triangles and squares. I've tried to google for what my doodles mean. Apparently I have a lot on my mind and I'm trying to get somewhere..?

Do you doodle? What do your doodles mean?

I did this Halloween nail art with my nail art brush that's falling apart >< Check out my Halloween triangle nail art:

I started with two coats of China Glaze - Exotic Encounters. You can see that the color differs greatly indoors and when taken with flash. The most accurate color I would say is the one taken in indirect sunlight (pictures below). It is not a deep forest green but more of a nice dusty teal.

Next, I used my nail art brush and a random orange polish to create the little nacho triangles. You can see that I just made rough outlines and colored them poorly. I should have filled the patches but I figured the top coat would smooth that out.

I strive for imperfect perfection when it comes to nail art because seriously, if I tried to make all my designs perfect (refer to all those famous nail bloggers), I wouldn't have time to do anything else. It's cool that they have steady hands and great precision and detailing but that's not me.

I drew the black triangles with a black nail art pen which I'm gonna have to throw away soon because it's running outta polish. These two pictures above were taken before I added top coat.

Then I added top coat. The weather was gloomy all week long so I didn't manage to take any outdoor pictures. I wanted to mattify these nails but then I forgot... oops.

And that's it. My funky Halloween nacho nail art. I thought nacho sounded cuter so I went with that instead of, you know, 'triangles'.
Finally. Triangles. I'll probably do these nails again but with a different color combination. They look so fun and edible, right?

What do you think? Do they look Halloween enough? Do you want to see any other geometric designs? I'm all about geometry these days, haha.

Thanks for reading!

  2. Very cute! Way more complicated than anything I can ever get on my nails!

    1. Thank you so much Lauren! <3 It's actually not that complicated but it does require a bit of patience :)
