Halloween Nail Ideas

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.

Goodbye, Summer

The nights are getting nippy, the fragrance of wood smoke is in the air, and Halloween will be here in a couple of weeks.  There’s no denying that fall is here and summer is over.  Still, I wanted to do a last hurrah with some summery nail polish spam.

Sinful Colors San Francisco + Kleancolors Afternoon Picnic

San Francisco by Sinful Colors is a dark emerald green glass fleck.  (The smile line is not visible in real life like it is in the picture.)  This is two coats.

Then I brushed on some glitter!  I used Kleancolors Afternoon Picnic, a joyful hullabaloo of multicolored, different sized hex glitter.  I used one coat on all my fingers except for the middle, which has two, to illustrate how the glitter accumulates with each layer.  The only thing I didn’t like about Afternoon Picnic is that the edges of the larger hexes tended to turn up, resulting in a fragmented nail surface.  Kleancolors also smell kind of funky, but I’m used to it.  You will definitely want to use a quick-dry topcoat with this level of mega glitter going on.

What a fun mani!  San Francisco reminds me of grass so an addition of an Afternoon Picnic only seemed logical :)
