Disney Halloween

Disney Halloween Nail Art

I saw these nails on the @justdisneybeauty Instagram account, and I had to try them for myself!  I love Disney, so combining that with Halloween is a win win.

If you've never been to Disneyland during Halloween, you need to go at least once.  All the Halloween decorations are great.

Nail Polish

Polish Used:
  • Sinful Colors - UFO
  • Wet n Wild - Black Crème
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - White On
  • SF Giants - Orange
  • Wet n Wild - Sunny Side Up
  • Wet n Wild - Red Red
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Mint Sorbet
Other Supplies:
  • Nail art brush
  • Heart and star rhinestones
  • Red and orange round rhinestones
  • Base and top coats

There are a lot of different details to paint in these nails, so sometimes the steps below will have a lot going on.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a clear base coat.  Most of the time this step is implied, but since it is essentially the base "color" for this look, I'm pointing it out.
  2. Use UFO to create a glitter gradient to the tips.  Paint one coat halfway down the nail.  Paint a second coat halfway down the orange glitter, and a third another half of what was just painted.  In other words, the first coat is half the nail, the second is a quarter, and the third is an eighth.

  3. Use black polish to paint the first set of details - pumpkin on the pinky, black drip on the ring, bat with Mickey ears on the middle, and Mickey head with "Halloween" written below on the index.

  4. Add a white circle on the middle finger (this will be Jack Skellington's head), and a ghost body on the thumb.
  5. Use an orange polish to add a face to the jack-o-lantern on the pinky, a Mickey head to the ring finger, and a face to the black Mickey head on the index.  Paint a red bowtie under Jack's head on the middle finger.
  6. Use a lighter orange like Sunny Side Up to paint stripes on the pumpkin on the ring finger, with swirls in the ears, and add a green stem.  Paint a green top hat on the black Mickey head, and add an orange stripe at the base. Add two orange dots for the bat's eyes.
  7. Use black polish to paint a face on the orange Mickey head, paint a face on Jack Skellington's head, add triangles to the sides of the eyes on the black Mickey head, and paint a face and ears on the ghost on the thumb.
  8. Use orange polish to add triangles to the sides of the orange Mickey head's eyes, and paint a bow on the head of the ghost.  Add a black stripe down the middle of the bow.
  9. Last but not least, add various heart, star, and round rhinestones to the nails, and seal them on with top coat.
