The Digit-al Dozen DOES Spooky Days, Day 3: Fan Brush Mummies!

Good morning, readers! It's Day 3 of Spooky Days with The Digit-al Dozen! I have another "cutesy" Halloween nail art mani for you today and I really loved it. I used a fan brush to add some dirt/age to the "bandages" and I love the extra detail.

  • I started out with 3 coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff. 
  • Once dry, I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys to add some "dirt" to the bandage base. I just swiped back and forth lightly over the base. 
  • Once dry, I used OPI Icebergers & Fries to add stripes for where the mummies would peek through the bandages. 
  • I used two sizes of dotting tools to add the eyes with white and red cremes.
  • OPI Black Onyx was used to make the bandage lines.
  • HKGirl Top Coat was used to seal in the design.
  • OPI Matte Top Coat was used to mattify the nail art.

What do you think? I don't think I've ever done mummy nails so I'm really digging these. They are definitely not creepy, but I usually go for cute over creepy nail art anyway. Thanks so much for reading!

Pin It!
