Ha-Ha-Halloween! (ft. Spooky Cute NOTD)

♫ Ragnarok Online BGM

It's that time of the year again, when people roam the night with outrageous costumes/makeup, and adorn their nails with blood-stained tips.

It's 31 October, Halloween! ψ(`∇´)ψ

I'm not one for dressing up on Halloween because #homebody, but it may also be due to the fact that I find the whole idea of celebrating (or rather, just using it as an excuse to go crazy with makeup and costumes) Halloween in Malaysia kinda absurd. It's like... why do we even do it? Absurdity aside, I'm always fascinated by the gory, spooky and downright creative nail art designs that pop up online in October. For last year, I did a very simple Halloween manicure using nail decals, but this year I decided to try my hand at some spooky-cute nail art after watching cutepolish's Ultimate Guide to Halloween Nail Art video.

Thumb to pinky: Dripping blood; Jack-O'-lantern; Frankenstein; twilight graveyard; skeleton.
I picked these 5 designs because they seemed easy enough to do, and also because I wanted each finger to have a different colour, haha!

My favourites are definitely the Frankenstein and twilight graveyard, because the former is really cute and the latter looks gorgeous. Although I have to admit, I cheated by adding a bat nail decal to the graveyard. (¬‿¬) What's Halloween without bats, right?!

Did you do anything special for Halloween, like dress up for a scary party or nail the spooky spirit with a Halloween manicure? Do share! :)
