Capitalizing on the classic movie monster that was sewn together from dead bodies, this look takes some ingenuity and patience to create, but the rewards are monumental!
There are also so many choices as to design for this look.
First, this trend works best with longer nails with squared-off tips. The reason for this shape is that the shape of the classic Frankenstein head is rectangular and boxy.
If you want to have the actual face of this monster painted on your nail tips, squared-off nails are the ticket.
However, you can still successfully pull off this theme with other nail shapes.
Get playful with it by creating a Frankenstein head on only one nail with your cuticle being the hair portion, and use other spooky designs, like gravestones or black cats, on other nails.
Another playful way to do this trend is to not have a Frankenstein face at all!
Simply paint your nails an acid green color and paint on black “stitch” marks at various angles to evoke the Frankenstein aesthetic.
You can also do diagonal slashes and paint one half of your nail green, the other half purple, with a stitch mark in the middle. Though no faces are involved, you will get your message across.
Color plays a big part in this look. Think bright yellow-greens, purples, blacks, yellows, ghostly grays and oranges.
The combination of these wild and crazy colors not only suit Halloween and the fall season in general, but together they remind everyone of that lurching monster everyone loves.
With the famous undead monster on your nails, you’re sure to be the life of the party!
