HALLOWEEN NAILS:
THE WITCH’S HAT

Happy Halloween! Celebrate the season with a chic and spooky witch’s hat manicure, because it’s good to be bad

 

ONE: Paint nails in two coats of beige polish. We used Leighton Denny High Performance Nail Colour in Brief Encounter, £12. Allow to dry for 15 minutes.

TWO: Stick two stripes of nail tape (clear sticky tape cut into thin strips will also work) to create a V shape with the point facing the centre of the nail’s tips.

THREE: Carefully paint inside the lines to create a witch’s hat shape using a potent shade of black. We love Nails Inc One Coat Nail Polish in Marlborough Crescent, £11.

FOUR: Allow the colour to dry for at least 15 minutes before removing the tape carefully. Apply two coats of Autograph Finish Gel Top Coat, £6, for the perfect shiny finish.
