Halloween Nail Art Set: Free Silhouette Studio Cut Files

My daughter and I love to do DIY holiday manicures - so this week, for Freebie Friday, I'm sharing a recent set I created for some fun Halloween vinyl nail art!

The set, which you can download below, includes three sizes of pumpkins (sized for adults and kids),  #31, dots and stripes.  Everything is already sized to fit 'average' nails.  I'm assuming the two us are average don't resize the shapes.

Now these nail designs are tiny so they can be scary to cut and difficult to weed.   Don't be scared!!

I had no problems cutting them on 651/permanent/outdoor vinyl with my CB09 Carbide blade and with a speed setting of 3.

The trick to weeding designs this small is to reverse weed.  I actually took a shortcut to the shortcut for these.  Start by cutting a small piece of transfer tape off the roll. (I prefer tape because you can see through it  - which is ideal for placing on the nail.)  Put the tape right over the cut vinyl design and burnish is.

Peel the tape back off bringing the cut design with it.  If you try to weed this vinyl like you normally would you're likely going to end up pulling the tiny dots and lines up with the excess vinyl - so just trust me on this one.  PS You can re-use the same piece of transfer tape multiple times. I used only 3 or 4 pieces total to transfer all of the designs onto our nails.

Place the vinyl decals on your pre-painted, well dried nails!

When I put vinyl decals on my toes I don't put anything over the vinyl. But when I put vinyl nail art on my finger nails I find I have better luck keeping the decals in place longer, if I put one or two coats of clear top coat over the vinyl. All that hand washing crafting and whatnot takes a toll!
