Just in time for Halloween, Swatch and Learn's nail art expert Mary has created these fantastically fun and frightening Frankenstein's Monster nails tutorial for all you ghoulish fashionistas to enjoy.

If, like me, you're a huge fan of the spooky holiday but would prefer to show your enthusiasm in a more subtle way, these nail designs are the perfect solution to your Halloween predicament. Using a clear top and base coat, a light-green lacquer, black polish, China Glaze Liquid Leather, Daniel Stone Art Tool #4 and a piece of aluminium foil, you too can don these awesome nails in under an hour! As Mary explains, the trick to successfully adding fine details, like eyes and a mouth, is by pouring a small amount of polish onto the foil and using a nail art tool to paint on the details, like you would with a paint palette.

DIY manicures are a great way to save money and to let your imagination run wild and experiment! Try out these awesome Frankenstein's Monster nails and don't be afraid to add your own personal touch! Stats for Morbid Movie Monster Manicures Trending: Older & Buzzing
