Halloween Nails With Skyy Hadley

If you’re going to rock nail art, there is no better time of year to do so than October. The month gives you free range to peruse all the wicked-cool Halloween nail art ideas, and try as many festive manicures as you want. See below for tips from celebrity nail artist, Skyy Hadley (who works on Faith Evans, Janelle Monae, and Mariska Hargitay).

Skyy recommends doing your nails the day before Halloween at home and giving yourself 45 minute to an hour of time to complete it. Follow Skyy’s DIY stiletto nail tutorial.

  1. Sanitize hands and nails.
  2. Start out with a square nail by clipping your nail straight across.
  3. Clip the uppermost portion of the two sides diagonally into a triangle.
  4. With a file, focus on curving the sides evenly to get a teardrop shape that softens the triangle.
  5. Whatever you do on one side, do on the other side. For example: If you do three files on one side, do three files on the other so that it looks symmetrical.
