Graveyard Nail Art

Hello all! Today's post is exciting! (In my opinion)

If you have an Instagram, there is a tag on there called #bestietwinnails and basically you and another person (or people) do the same nail design. So today I have Bestie Twin nails with Selena of @101NailFreak on Instagram.

We decided on a Halloween graveyard design. 

First I'll show my interpretation.

The base was done in polish and the rest is acrylic paint topped with matte top coat. 

Onto Selena's work,

I absolutely love the way she did them. and look how long her nails are! so jealous! 

Here's another one of her designs, 

So amazing right!? She's incredibly talented. Funny story actually, we went to the same high school. She graduated last year and I am a senior this year. It was unknown to us at the time and we recently realized over Instagram! She doesn't have a blog at this time but hopefully soon!

Here's a picture of both of our designs together.

This nail art was actually based on this picture I found on Google: 

Had I known at the time that this was doing to be really difficult to execute on nails, I wouldn't have picked it. But it's good to challenge yourself sometimes right? Painting in shades of grey and black isn't the easiest thing to do. Hopefully my nails don't just look like grey blobs. 

I think that's about all for this post. I had such a great time doing this!

Look out soon for another set of #bestietwinnails!
