Your Luxe Girl Guide To A Fab Halloween
First things first. While we’re sure that your spooky Halloween makeup will be on point this year, don’t forget to glam up your claws! For a cheeky weekend mani, try Skyy Hadley’s easy peasy candy corn nail look. Follow these five super easy steps or get it done by the pros at As U Wish Nail Salon! Kill this look and you’ll be ready for a full day of Halloweekend partying in no time.
- To start, paint one half of the nail white and the other bright yellow (ideally, with glossy polishes from Lauren B. Beauty).
- Then, apply two nail art stickers on each nail.
- Working with one nail at a time, paint the area inside the stickers with creamy orange nail polish.
- Carefully remove the stickers.
And repeat! Allow five minutes for each nail design to dry and finish it with a coat of Lauren B. Gel. How cute are you?
