Halloween Nails: Frankenstein

My nieces will get a kick out of my Frankenstein nails. I used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Limestone as a basecoat and Milani Nail Art Black Sketch for the eyes and mouth. For the hair I used OPI Black Shatter.

Halloween Nails: Spiderwebs Everywhere

This is the second of many Halloween designs I'll be posting. My spiderweb nails were fun and easy to create. Just one coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Black Heart as the base coat. For the spiderwebs I used two nail art polishes: Milani White Canvas traced over LA Colors Silver.

Halloween Nails: Candy Corn

Admittedly I won't be wearing my candy corn nails to work tomorrow, but I had fun creating them. I tried to match the colors exactly: the yellow is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lightening, and the orange is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed.

Nail of the Day: Black Opal

Today's color is Wet N Wild Gray's Anatomy. I love this silvery prismatic shade. The camera doesn't fully capture how pretty it is. At $1.99 I definitely recommend this one for anyone's fall collection!
