Halloween

I thought i’d do a different sort of halloween nail from the ones i’ve done so far and here we go. We have graveyards.

If you look carefully at them, (there are more photos after the cut an they’re larger too) you might spot a zombie or two walking the graveyard., and maybe a hand bursting from a grave.

Colours i used:

‘Purple Blue – Beetlejuice’ by Models Own, ‘Aqua violet – beetlejuice’ by Models Own, ‘White on white’ by Revlon, ‘Blackout’ by Rimmel, ‘School Skirt’ by Accessorize, ‘Sidewalkers’ by NYC, ‘Vivid Purple’ by Barry M, ‘Electric’ by Rimmel, ‘Blue Asphalt  by Boujour, ‘Purple Reign – Metal Rush’ by Rimmel.

I chose the background colours based on how i thought they related to night time and dusk. I wanted it to look like a night in a graveyard.

Taking my smallest brush, i took a middle tone grey and started drawing in the gravestones. The smaller gravestones are simple to draw on, they’re just one swipe of the brush and rounding off the top. The crosses and Celtic cross took longer to do.

Once they were all drawn in i took a darker grey and a white and use them for the highlighting an shadows on each gravestone.

Finally, for a touch of detail, i took a nail pen in black and drew in birds in the sky and snuck a few zombie hands and walking zombies into the background of the nails.

I hope you have fun recreating this look.
