When we found out that our favorite nail artist, Fleury Rose, was joining forces with Illamasqua for some goulish Halloween nail art, to say we were excited was an understatement. The U.K. brand is a staple in our nail-polish repertoire — thanks to its super-opaque formulas and fashion-forward color palette — and Fleury never seems to disappoint when it comes to decorating our digits.
Click through to see the frightening fingertip fun these two powerhouses dreamt up and get the scoop on how you can re-create these seriously scary (and awesome!) looks on your own digits this Halloween.

Witching Hour
Illamasqua products used: Nail Varnish in Phallic, DWS, Scorch, and Blow.
1. After applying a basecoat, apply one thick coat of Phallic. Let dry.
2. Dip the small brush in Blow and create a tiny crescent moon.
3. Dot on very tiny stars with the tip of the brush. Allow to dry for at least five minutes.
4. Pour out a small puddle of Scorch, then a small puddle of DWS next to it, so that the colors are touching.
5. Dip the corner of your makeup sponge into the polish so you get a little of each color on the sponge. Gently dab on clouds.
6. Allow to dry 3-5 minutes, and apply topcoat.

1. After applying basecoat, paint nails with two coats of Scorn. Allow nails to dry for 3-5 minutes.

3. Pour a small puddle of Serenity onto foil. Dip the small end of a dotting tool into polish and dot in the very center of each white circle. Repeat on each nail. Allow to dry 3-5 minutes.
4. Dip the point of a toothpick into Scorn and gently dot a tiny black point into the center of each eye.
5. After allowing to dry, add optional topcoat for a shiny finish, or leave it off to stay matte.
