Frankenstein’s nails!

If I was a betting woman, I’d bet Frankenstein’s bride would LOVE a nice manicure to represent the man in her life. I mean after all, everyone loves carrying something with them to remind them of loved ones, even a monster’s mate.

I am doing this tutorial on an artificial nail (actually 5) because I cannot paint my left hand after the nails are applied (left handed).

It is so simple and cute, plus it only takes 2 nail colors and a toothpick!


The first thing I did was paint my nail with my green polish. You want it to be opaque, so apply2-3 coats.


Next I used the thin brush of my nail striper and drew a random, squiggly line across my nails. The thin brush is NOT needed, I just already had it on hand. You could very easily use a toothpick dipped in black polish to make this line.


I dropped a dab of black polish on a piece of paper and used my toothpick (mine was actually a skewer) to draw small lines across the squiggly line I already had.


Apply a topcoat to prevent chipping, and you’re done!

Yes, really, that’s all you have to do! Aren’t they adorable and totally Frankenstein-y?!

Happy fall, yall!
