This is a freehand nail design. I have been asked several times if the nail art I post here are my creations or, are they nail stickers. I have disclosed that yes, I paint my own nails and create these nail designs personally. I am in the process of publishing a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page to serve as reference to future inquiries.
Four Frankensteins Nail Art Design by Simply Rins
Base colors are 2 coats of China Glaze Tree Hugger for the green, and Color Club Paris White for the accent nails. I also used Tree Hugger for Frankenstein's face for consistency.
For the other details of the design, I used black acrylic paint, a detailing and stripper nail art brush.
I am personally not so fond of wearing green. I only have a few shades on my stash and I bought them mostly for nail art purposes. Aside from Zoya Shawn, I am surprised to have like Tree Hugger.
I made 4 accent nails for this Halloween nail art design. On my left hand, Frankenstein can be seen on my ring and index finger. He's on my pinky and middle finger on my right hand. I painted stitches on all the other nails. If you have the time, you could probably paint all your nails with Frankenstein and create different facial expressions.
Out of personal preference, each Frankenstein is facing another Frankenstein, sort of like a mirror image. I also painted him in 3/4 perspective, an effect that you can simple create by making one eye smaller than the other. I wanted a little white to show just to break the monotony of the green.
I did a Frankenstein Halloween nail art last year that you can view here. I was new at freehand nail painting then and decided to take it slow by starting with simple shapes that is easy for my weaker hand to do. It has been a year since then and I want to believe that my skills have improved.
To fellow nail art enthusiasts who are starting to explore freehand nail art, I know that there will be times of frustrations, but with a little practice, you'll eventually develop the skill.
