Halloween Faces: Devil

Hello fellow sinners. Today is day three in my series of tutorials on Halloween faces. Today I have the mischievous creatures known as devils. There are lots of various myths and legends surrounding devils and demons but the most well known face is of a red creature with yellow eyes, horns and a pitch fork. This is my cutesy nail design for it.

I started with a red base. If you are observant you can see I used three different reds on my nails of various similar shades. You do not have to do this, but I was feeling adventurous.

I took a dark brown and my detail brush to make the horns. Its sort of a side arc from the edge to the tip. I am not really sure how else to describe how I did them.

Next I used my doter to dot yellow eyes.

I followed up with a small black dot inside of the yellow.

Taking a black and my brush again I made small lines below the eyes in a V-ish pattern to create the nostrils and a straight line for a mouth.

Again I used my brush and made small triangles with the points going up to make the teeth. It gives the appearance of the lower canines sticking out of the lips.

As always I finished up with a thick top coat after about ten minutes of drying time.

Hope you guys enjoyed this today. Ill be back tomorrow with another tutorial. Mischievous Polishing!

  2. I was reading your post about how you are part native american, and how you said you can't wear certain pinks, because of the gold glitter, and so I was actually just putting on OPI's "Pink of Hearts" and I realized it is a light, opaque pink with ONLY silver glitter in it, and all the money from it goes to breast cancer funds. I hope you check it out, and I love this blog!
