This week was sponsored by Swarovski Crystals. We were asked to created Halloween nail art, inspired by our favourite witch on 5 tips using a mix of hand painting, 3d elements and Swarovski Crystals. I chose to do an old child hood favourite of mine, Hazel witch from the Looney Toones. I was drawn to her strong witty sense of humour and her hysterical cackling laugh. I hope you enjoy my tutorial.
