Halloween (Part 2) : The (Eye) Monsters Manicure

It's November 12th and i'm still so into Halloween since it's my favorite holiday for the whole year hoho. For me Halloween is not only about wearing costumes, collecting chocolates and candies, or even being scary or scared. Halloween is a moment when everyone celebrating a day with the devils and monsters. It sounds scary and doesn't right i think, but let me put it this way: it's a holiday that considered you that you're not alone in this world. That human is not the only one who has this world. We live together them and share the place and time with them too. So, this time i'll show you how a monster can look funny and cute!

A one eye monster like Mike Swazovski in Monster Inc is my inspiration for this manicure. So, my mani this time consist of three parts: the colorful skin, an eye, and a mouth/lips. To make it not scary (because i'm soooo done with people scary with monsters, please, they can be cute in some ways :p) i put colorful color as a base for their skins and cute facial expressions for each monster on each nail that illustrated by cute-lips-expressions.


1. choose a color to be the skin of the monster, for this example i choose my favorite, pink. And this pretty pink polish is Revlon Top Speed - Candy.
2. Still with the same polish with the monster's skin, with dotting tools, make the horn of the monster on the edge of your nails and your skins.
3. to do the eye, use white color. This time i'm using white polish from Trendy Nails by The FaceShop.
4. enhance the eye with the dotting pen to make a perfect circle. I'm using The FaceShop Dotting Pen.
5. to do the lips use dotting pen in black color. I'm using The FaceShop Dotting Pen - black.
6. inside the white base for the eye, use green/blue as the pupil of the eye. You can use the dotting tools to do it.
7. inside the pupil, use dotting pen again to make the black part of the pupil.
8. to create the effect of light reflection in the eye, use the white dotting pen again. Make a dot on the black pupils for the effects.

Voila, and......... DONE!
I'll be very happy to see your version of one eye-cute-monsters on your nails :D

Happy (Late) Halloween!
Still wanna trick or treat? ;)
