Ghost nail art

Jin Soon Choi's ghostly nail art.

Halloween is all about the costumes, the candy... and the adorable nail art (even if you're not a nail art person the other 11 months of the year). Am I right? 

For this year's festivities, top nail artist Jin Soon Choi—whose celebrity clientele includes Lady Gaga, Kerry Washington, Taylor Swift, Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Stone—dreamed up a ghostly design in a chic black and white palette. 

Here's the step-by-step tutorial. Boo!

Ghost Nail Art Tutorial

1. File and shape your nails to a natural square shape.

2. Apply a base coat. (Jin used her own JINsoon Power Coat.)

3. Apply a dark grey/black shade with a subtle metallic finish to the entire nail. (Jin used her own JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Nocturne.)

4. Draw ghostly shapes at the tips of the nails with a white shade. (Jin used her own JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Kookie White.) Feel free to use your imagination with the shapes!
