Halloween nails pt 4: Mummies

Hi again!

This Halloween theme is driving me nuts,in the good way! So many ideas and so little time, ugh. This must be the easiest mani ever!! Everyone can do this and I encourage you to do so and see for yourself. OPI Alpine Snow is a great bright white which applies very well. I used two coats and it was complete even and opaque, great. I combined the Konad Special polish in black with the S6 imageplate from Konad. I absolutely love this plate. It has celtic-like design which I adore! With the tip of my black striper (or just use a pen/toothpick/dottingtool) I created the eyes. And guess what.. that’s all!!!

Watch it, you’re being watched!!! =)

Edit: the awesome Egyptian brushes for Photoshop were downloaded from here!

  18. Iris says:

    The Konad was my own idea, the concept with the eyes I stumbled upon on YouTube which is a great source for nailart ideas. Never thought I’d use this imageplate for a design like this haha!

  25. Polish &amp;amp; Konad says:

    Love it! I’m gonna have to try this! So cute

  26. DragonRhia says:

    These are my absolute favorites of your halloween nail art series. The lines are so sharp and then you’ve got the googly eyes and it totally changes that uniformness of the lines…I can’t explain it but it draws my eye every time I look at all your designs.

  27. Elizabeth says:

    This is so cute, I had to copy it…but I didn’t take a second look and ended up making faces on all of my nails. Oh well, it’s not as nice looking as yours, but I love the idea. Hope you don’t mind a copy cat! This was just too good. :)   I even had to order the Konad disk! Love your designs. So glad I found your blog.

  28. Iris says:

    Please do try! :D

  29. Iris says:

    Stop with the sweet commentssss! I’m a sucker at receiving compliments, all I can do is ehm, tell you a BIG thanks *blush* :-[ That’s the good thing with Konad, lines are sharper than you will ever be able to do yourself freehanding haha. 

  30. Iris says:

    I don’t mind at all actually! I’m very curious to the outcome now, care to share a pic? I’m sure you will looooveeeee the plate, it’s has such pretty designs, it’s one of my favorites and most used :) thnx girl! :*

  31. Trincess says:

    incredibly cute =DDD

    Ohmygoodness.  Iris I have come here to make my confession.  I just finished up an entry for a competition at Chez-delaney, and I totally did this so close to your mani!  I wondered that someone else might ahve already done it but I did a google search and didn’t find anything. I entered a different mani in Polish Freshie’s competition and when I saw yours I had to come leave a note.  I have posted a link to your Mummy entry on my blog post so that people who come see mine know about yours too.  You definitely made yours first! 

    I hope you don’t mind. 

  33. Iris says:

    JQ! Don’t be silly! It’s not like I own this design, the mummy idea itself has been used all over the internet already, the usage of this specific plate for the wrappings I personally hadn’t seen around yet, but I definately don’t claim it! You made an extremely cute entry for the contest and I will make sure to enter with a different pic, no worries :) Thnx for telling me your concerns, but now instead of wasting time at my blog, gogo make more awesome halloween mani’s! pleaaaase!

  34. Iris says:

    Thanksssssssssssss <3

  35. JQ says:

    Thanks you.  :)   But so you know I really dig wasting a bit of time here at your blog.  :p
    Okay I’m off to make more manis!
