Halloween Nail Art Featuring the Julep Plie Wand

A little while ago, I posted about how I finally received my Julep Plie Wand but hadn't had time to review. I figured this was the perfect opportunity to get my nails done for Halloween and use the wand for the first time.

I used the wand to create 3 simple designs. Check them out below!

I began by painting 3 stripes (white, orange, and yellow) on my middle finger. I painted each of my other fingers solid black.

Using the Plie wand with the striping brush attachment and black polish, I angled in the sides of my middle fingers to create a candy corn look.

Next, I used the same striping attachment to carefully draw a spider wed on my pinkie. This is where I realized how great the Plie wand really works. My nails are very short and it was extremely easy to get in the small details with the attachments.

I then switched over to the dotting tool attachment and dotted a small pumpkin on my thumb nail. I went back with the striping attachment to create the jack o lantern's face and stem. I then finished with a top coat.

Here's a list of the polishes I used for this look:

White - Sally Hansen's "Natural White" from this set
Yellow - Julep's "Alma"
Brown (pumpkin stem) - Julep's "Alma" mixed with China Glaze's "Liquid Leather"
Green (pumpkin leaves) - I've had this colour for years and sadly, the labels are missing so I have no clue who made it!

I also used Julep's Plie Wand as well as both attachments from the creativity kit.

In case you didn't notice, I had to mix a few colours in this design to create the orange and brown I needed. Orange was easy (because I have so many red and yellow polishes) but brown is a bit more difficult.
It was recently brought to my attention that Julep has the perfect brown (which I need to get immediately) called "Chloe". Check it out in Julep's shop here.


If my Halloween design isn't for you, Julep has a great tutorial for a design that's a bit more complicated. Check it out below!

Wishing everyone and their kiddies have a safe and happy halloween! Happy nail painting!
