My nails are staring at me!!!!!

Are you looking for a spooky Halloween mani which is cute at the same time and not difficult to create? Don’t worry, we have got you covered! All you need is LOOK Halloween collection and you are all set to rock some uber cute nails this season! Let’s get started!
Step 1: Apply base coat on all your nails and then apply two coats of LOOK White!
Step 2: Before moving onto this step, make sure that the white polish on your nails is COMPLETELY DRY. This is very important if you do not want to smudge the base. Now, take LOOK Black and wipe most of the polish from the polish brush on to the neck of the bottle. If required, swipe the polish brush a couple of times on your nail art mat or on a piece of paper. We need “as little” polish on the brush as possible. Once you are happy with the amount of polish on the brush, make some vertical and horizontal strokes on the nail as shown in the picture. This is known as the “Dry-brush” technique!
Step 3: Repeat step 2 with LOOK Orange, Lavender & Lime. You do not need to wait in between the layers of polishes as the thin brush strokes dry very quickly.
Step 4: Now take the polish brush again! This time we do not need to dry the brush as much, instead make sure you have enough polish on your brush to create a French tip. Take the brush and swipe it across the tip of the nail diagonally from one side and then from the other like shown in the picture.
You can use different colors on each nail like I did or you can apply one color on all nails. You might have to apply 2-3 coats depending on the opacity of the polish. Make sure to let the coats dry in between each application.
Step 5: This is my favorite part! :) Using a dotting tool make two tiny white dots on the French tip you just created to make little eye balls for our tiny monsters. When the white dots are dry, make some black dots to complete the eyes.
Step 6: You can skip this step but if you want to make your manicure even more interesting, take a small nail art brush and give the monsters some eyebrows and eyelashes. There is plenty of room to play around here and you can get as creative as you want.
Step 7: Finally give everything some time to dry, apply LOOK gel-like top coat and you are done!
See, it’s that easy! Play around with different color combinations! You can match the colors according to your Halloween costume! You can even give the monsters some go0gly eyes or stitches or some fangs…upto you!
You are the boss!
But beware; the monsters will be keeping an eye on you all day! :)
