Blue Halloween Scene | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

It’s Halloween for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group today. I’ve not really done “proper” Halloween nails before. I did a Halloween needle drag, but that’s as close as I’ve got before now.

Pink Scaled Gradient Zigzags: Z is for: Zigzags

We’re finally at the end of the A2Z series challenge. Twenty-six weeks after starting and we’re at Z, which is for zigzags.

It’s an effective look, created I believe by Cristine of Simply […] Read more
