Slasher! Spooky Halloween nails


Ever since I was little, my favourite holiday has always been Halloween.  Although Halloween for adults is much more different than it may be for kids (cute and adorable versus slutty), I still get excited every time October hits. I love watching scary movies, browsing the Halloween sections at different stores, picking out a Halloween costume for Ziggy (he gets a new one every year), and driving around and seeing all the houses decorated.

Although it may not be socially acceptable to wear your Halloween costume all month long, you can definitely get into the spirit early with your nails.

Sally Hansen is bringing it this month with their limited edition Halloween collection, which includes three Insta-Dri polishes, two Fuzzy Coats, and four Salon Effects. As part of their Insta-Dri Halloween collection, Sally Hansen has released three shades which are the most Halloween-like colours you’ll see this month. There’s an orange (Pumpkin Queen), a white (OMGhost), and a black (Night Fright).  The great thing about the Insta-Dri line in particular is its rich colour (you only need one coat) and super-fast drying time.  To add a bit of spice to your mani, layer one of the limited edition Fuzzy Coats, in either Witch-ful Thinking (orange and black confetti) or Fur-ankenstein (green and black confetti).

If DIY nail art isn’t your thing, try one of their Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips.  I’ve used these a lot and are hands-down my favourite nail polish stickers.  The Halloween ones (there are four in total) are super neat as they feature special effects, such as real lace fabric (Little Black Lace), and glow in the dark (Hallowscene).

For those of you who like going full out, try Broadway Nails imPRESS Halloween press-ons that are available in six different spooky designs.  I received four of the six and if you have tried Broadway Nails before, you know how amazing these are.  Just pick a nail that fits, remove the adhesive, and stick on.  They last for 10 days and will have everyone asking you where you got your nails done. They are quite long, so if you aren’t used to long nails (like me), it’s a bit of a challenge at first (especially when it comes to removing contact lenses). There are shorter ones available, but not in the Halloween designs.

Whatever you choose to outfit your claws with this Halloween, make sure they are “boo”-tiful.

What will you be sporting on your claws this October 31st?
