Our first pre-challenge is  Sponsored by Swarovski Crystals. The task was to create Halloween nail art inspired by our favorite witch. Nails should be spellbinding, complete with the Swarovski items and a mix of hand painted and 3-D elements. My favorite witch is "Evil Grimhilde" from Snow white. For my creation i used 5 tips, acrylic paints, gels, 3d lace gel, gel polish, acrylic powders, swarovski crystal and a lot of passion !

Step-by-Step Nail Art Tutorial

I took five tips buffed them and glued them together.  Took the paper from the forms put it to my finger to give the curve that i wanted  and create the cauldron with black-grey acrylic powder.  I glued the cauldron first in the middle of the canvas to be sure for the right spot.  \nWith black acrylic paint i designed the lines for the stone wall and then covered all the empty spots by mixing acrylic paints (brown, yellow ,beige ,white and black).

 For Snow white start with her head. First  use just beige acrylic paint to give the shape and finish the head with face details (eyes, nose, lips ) and her hair with the bow. Then add shadows and lighting. Start with the top of the dress using blue, white and some details with red. For the bottom of the dress use yellow, white and gold acrylic paints. Use beige for her hand. For the apple  use a piece of wire and take a big ball of acrylic powder dipping first in light red powder and then in dark and give the shape of an apple with a brush. Glue the apple first at the edge of the last tip and then with a small ball of cover pink acrylic powder give the shape of her fingers on the apple. Finish her by painting her 3d hand with beige and brown for the shadows.

Witching time!!! Use cover pink acrylic powder to create the face first and then with black powder the cape.

To complete the witch use acrylic paints .Mix water with brown paint for the skin in that way the paint will go to all the carvings and details that were made before (wrinkles , fingers ,nose, eyes ,mouth.)  For the apple  use a piece of wire  and take a big ball of acrylic powder dipping it first in light red powder and then in dark and give the shape of an apple with a brush.
