Finger Painting: Frankie Fingers

Hello, my Pretties!

It feels like ages since I last blogged. So much going here on but I won't go into that. All that matters is that I am here now!

Last blog post was on a NYX nail polish by the name of Lime. I didn't like the color too much until I decided to do a Halloween inspired Frankenstein nail look. This was my first serious try at drawing on nail art. I cannot draw with a paper and pencil so this was such a feat! But it really was fun.

I got my inspiration, or should I say, I copied this look from goldiestarling on YouTube. She has an awesome channel so I do hope that you will check it out!

Here is the direct link to goldiestarling's nail tutorial:
Halloween Nail Tutorial Lil' Frankies

Here is my version of this really cute look.



3 coats of NYX in Lime.

Add a head of hair with black nail polish.

Add some sideburns with black nail polish.

Dot on two eyeballs with white nail polish.

Draw on some eyebrows with black nail polish.

Draw on the mouth and stitches with black nail polish.
(Sorry for the blurry image. You get the idea.)

Dot on two irises on the eyeballs with black nail polish.

Make sure the whites dry well or else the eyeball
will travel like mine did here.

I used the thumb as my accent nail.
All other nails were given a French mani with black tips.

But the sweet-tart wanted me to do all the nails Frankie.

And here is the final full set...top coat and all.

Nail ingredients used:
NYX Nail Polish in Lime
L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Nail Color in Matte Black
Avon Nailwear Nail Enamel in Cloud 9
Wet n Wild Clear Nail Proctector

So, I know goldiestarling's was so much better but this was really fun. I know most of you will be able to do this very well. If I did it semi-good, some of you will rock this look!

I just thought that this was a fun way to feel festive this Halloween season. I highly suggest that you all try this one!

SIDE NOTE:
Since I first did this look using the actual nail polish brush and a tooth pick, I did get a nail art brush from my sister. She begged me to do her some Frankie Fingers so I did and in return, she gave me a Milani Nail Art Polish in a light green. I just use the brush now! I wipe off the green polish and dip it in the black nail polish and the mouth, stitches, and eyebrows can be drawn on so much better. I highly suggest you get one!

Luv & Luk,

  2. @Hunter87, thank you :) Are you going to try them out? You should. It's not that hard you kind of just need a steady hand. Which I didn't. LOL.

  6. @Hav BwB, LOL, I don't have the patience either. I did only one accent nail but the man thought it would look better on all the nails like in the tutorial. It was hard work!

    @Vintage Makeup, go buy some! LOL. Try it. All you need is a steady hand because the actual design really is quite simple. :)

    @Wendy, LOL. Thanks :) Yeah, do them! I'd stick with the one accent nail too. I might to them again for Halloween night but I'm not sure. Maybe some pumpkins instead?? :)
