YOU WANT SPOOKY NAILS, BUT MAKE EM’ CUTE?

Well, we’ve got you covered. It’s no surprise that one of the top tending styles for Halloween nails 2020, has made a huge comeback in Halloween nails 2021.

Magpie Brand Ambassador, Jordan Ward, used FALL FROM GRACE, a new colour from our gorgeous COVER UP gel collection, as a base. Then mixed WHITE GEL PAINT and PINK GEL PAINT to create custom pumpkin shades.

Jordan used a selection of Magpie’s PREMIUM DETAILER BRUSHES and DOTTING TOOL to paint the ghosts and pumpkins.

Next, Jordan added bats, stars and moons from NAIL ART STICKERS 137132 using EARL and the SILICONE TOOL to ensure perfect application.

To encapsulate the design, Jordan used GIVE ME STRENGTH CLEAR and finished with LIKE A DIAMOND gel top coat.

We are obsessed with these super cute nails.
