NOTW 12: Halloween Nails: Creepy Eyes

So I know I'm spoiling you a little but I have another Halloween Nail design for you today! One thing I really wanted to try was some creepy eyes in the dark! I thought I'd make it quite cartoony, as they would be more simple and fun! These were actually really easy to do; I started off with a black base (the base I used was actually a black from Primark, but I had my Barry M one to hand when I took the photos) and went in with my largest dotting tool to create pairs of dots over my nails. I also used a slightly smaller dotting tool in some of the gaps to fill up some of the space and create more eyes on each nail. I then waited for the dots to dry and using a smaller dotting tool than the one for the white, went in with some red, yellow and green polish to create the iris's of the eyes. I think that the yellow and green worked best as it was easier to see the pupils over these colours. After the colours had dried I went in with my smallest dotting tool and created the pupils on the eyes and finished with a top coat and some of my Essence Express Dry Drops. I think this is actually a really fun design and it's so easy to create. I wish I'd had some glow in the dark polish however, as I think this would have made the nails so much better at night! If I can grab my hand on some glow in the dark polish, I think I'll experiment some more with this design! Have you tried anything like this for Halloween? What are your nail plans for your costume?!
