A Skeletal Nail Look for Halloween

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a classic Halloween movie – or is it Christmas? In any case, Jack the Skeleton is a staple character for the spooky season. Here’s a great Halloween-inspired nail look to try using Zoya Nail Polish!

Colors Used: Zoya Nail Polish in Raven & Zoya Purity

Tools Used: A dotting tool, and a thin striping brush

Step 1: Prep nails using Zoya Remove + and apply Anchor Base Coat.

Step 2: Paint all nails except one accent nail using Zoya Raven. Use Zoya in Purity for the accent nail.

Step 3: Choose which nails you want to stripe. Once the base is completely dry, take a thin striping brush and create 4-5 thin lines vertically down the nail with Zoya Nail Polish in Purity.

Step 4: For Jack’s face: Create two dots for the eyes using a dotting tool and drag down a bit to make them large ovals. Create two small lines for the nostrils. Next, draw a smile line from one edge of the nail to the other. Finally, make vertical lines on the mouth for the stitches.

Step 5: Once your accent nails are mostly dry, seal in your festive new look with Zoya Armor Top Coat!

Bright Citrus Nail Art

Zoya CitrusOne of the best parts of summer is sitting out in the sun with a glass of lemonade. This citrus manicure will perfectly complement your end of summer days out in the sun. We love the vibrant colors as a way to bring the sun into your everyday life.

What you’ll need…

Step 1: Paint each nail with the Anchor Base Coat. Follow up with two coats of Wendy on each nail. Wendy will really let Cole pop and create an amazing manicure!

Step 2: Paint a half-circle at the tip of each nail with Cole.

Step 3: After each nail is dry, outline the bottom of each half circle with Snow White.

Step 4: Next, paint a dot in the middle of each nail with Snow White. After you have done this, paint diagonal lines, joining at the dot to complete the slices of each “fruit”.

Step 5: Finally, paint each nail with Zoya Armor Top Coat and enjoy your citrus manicure!
