Halloween is less than a week away! Here’s a medley of random nail polishes that would make for sweet Halloween nails.
This is Pumpkin orange and black bar glitter – the nail polish that comes in the super cute pumpkin-shaped bottle. I used two coats on top of CG Idyllic, a burgundy-based duochrome with a gold/green shift. P.S. What’s the difference between “bar” and “string” glitter? Or are they synonyms?
Mattese Elite (ME), a brand sold by Ricky’s – I can’t remember for sure, but I think this is called Purple Sky. It’s a dirty dark eggplant that leans towards grayish brown in certain lights. This is a good zombie color I think!
Wet N Wild “Craze” Inferno. Wow, look at that glow in the bright sunlight!
Brucci Black Emerald is one of my favorite colors of all time. It’s black, it’s green, it’s heaven. Good color for a witch or swamp monster!
LA Splash Crimson Tide is a dripping bloody red glitter for vampire vixens. Due to its dark red jelly base it builds up nicely in 3 juicy coats.
Kleancolor Golden Nightmare has a funny name. I agree with the nightmare part but “golden” sounds too angelic. It’s a black base with greenish gold glitter. It’s very bumpy on its own and begs for a solid topcoat.
It reminds me a little of China Glaze It’s Alive meets Nina Ultra Pro Mossy Britches.
Sally Hansen XTreme Wear Pumpkin Spice is an orange glitter with a brown jelly base.
Here’s how it looks matte.
Sinful Colors Serena and Chloe, an orange glass fleck in a jelly base. This one is so pretty.
Then I used some crackle on top for extra Halloween flair.

Jewelry, art, music… and makeup! For me, these are all natural ways of expressing myself. The face is a canvas waiting to be enhanced, just like a blank sheet of sterling silver or clay. Here you’ll find an archive of my makeup looks and tutorials. For about 2 years I did my best to never repeat the same makeup (!!), so as you can imagine there are quite a few! I’m happy to answer any questions about how I created a look, product recommendations, etc.
From time to time I have makeup sales, which will also be posted here.
