Get Ready for Halloween with Spooky Nail Art!

Halloween is coming up next week and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with some spooky nail art! One of our favorite nail art trends is the eerie blood dripped look from Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2013 runway show.

This trend is going to be huge this season! Lacquerous’ own Cyndi Ramirez is rocking this killer manicure by Christina Rinaldi of Prima Creative. How amazing is this minimalist blood and cross design?

 

The lovely Fleury Rose created a few Halloween-themed styles for Illamasqua and Beautylish. We love the evil eye and witch’s moon designs!

Birchbox had a great tutorial on ghostly nail art as well. You can choose which design to create based on your skill level. The mummy nails are especially awesome!

What kind of spooky nail art will you be wearing for Halloween?

Do you dream of receiving high-end & limited edition nail colors from top luxury brands delivered to your doorstep for just one monthly price?

Exploring the World of Nail Art

Over the past few years, nail art has grown from being a fun novelty into a legitimate style statement. These days, stylish ladies are serious about their nails, but not much is known about the origin of nail art. The documentary Nailgasm seeks to explore the evolution of nail art from hip hop culture to high fashion.

 

Ayla L. Montgomery, professionally known as Brass, is the Los Angeles-based documentarian behind Nailgasm. She fully funded the project via Kickstarter, a funding platform for creative projects. Through interviews with luxury nail artists, pop culture journalists, and nail art enthusiasts, Brass aims to discover the origins of nail art and the range of creativity in the industry.

Brass intends to use the money raised through Kickstarter to travel to various cities, including Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas, Oakland, London, and Tokyo to research the different styles of nail art. In New York, Brass interviews Fleury Rose, who excels at fashion-influenced nails and intricate designs. Also in the documentary are the artists of London’s own Wah Nails, notable for their edgy art and use of bright colors. Another salon featured is Disco Nails, whose artists are known for their whimsical designs and use of 3D nail art.
