Nail Of The Day – Astor Fashion Studio 237 Orange Cosmos, Sally Hansen HD Hi-Definition Nail Colour 07 Three D

Hi there! Today’s post is about another mani I’m filing under Halloween Nail Ideas.

For this mani I painted my nails with Astor Fashion Studio 237 Orange Cosmos (2 coats). This is a nice pale orange shade which would have been perfect for stamping.

However, I decided to do decals! And I wanted a much cooler base colour. So I painted 1 coat of Sally Hansen HD Hi-Definition Nail Colour 07 Three D over the pale orange.

Once the polish was dry, I applied a few halloweeney decals. Then 1 coat of clear polish… job done! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Waikiki & Stamping With MoYou London 53

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. And it’s another mani I will file under Halloween Nail Ideas.

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Waikiki (2 coats). This is a matte polish. I don’t like matte nails at all, so I applied 1 coat of clear polish to give the mani a glossy finish.

I used MoYou London‘s Festive 53 stamping plate and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto to stamp ghosts, bats, spiderwebs, a broom, bones, a mummy, and a skeleton onto my nails.

I really liked this mani. The base colour and the images are absolutely perfect for Halloween.

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Marshmallow & Stamping With Pueen 114

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently. And it’s another Halloween-inspired mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Marshmallow (2 coats). I like this polish. It’s opaque in 2 easy coats, and it was 90p. Thanks, Primark!

I used Pueen‘s 114 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection) and Manhattan Quick Dry 46K for the images. I did another mani with this stamping recently, and my blogging buddy Helen from Brokedown Vanity thought the image would be perfect for Halloween. I don’t think she had this kind of mani  in mind, but when she mentioned Halloween, I thought “OMG, yes”. 🙂

I do like this mani because it reminds me very much of Dexter. I did smudge a few bits, but all in all, I think this is another mani I’m happy to file under Halloween Nail Ideas.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin, Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey, Water Decals & Foils

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 430 Black Satin (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 270 Steel Grey (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

I love the black polish. It’s a true black. Gorgeous! “Steel Grey” isn’t grey at all. It’s more like one of those (more or less) nude-ish shades with maybe a hint of grey.

I used gold foil to add a contrast to the black base colour, and I used water decals to give the mani a halloweeney look. Yes, it’s not Halloween yet, but doing several Halloween manis throughout the month of October is simply more fun.

Nail Of The Day – Halloween Nail Art Ideas / NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day & Stamping

Hi there! Today’s post is the 6th and last Halloween Nail Art Ideas post for this year.

If you’re still unsure what to do with your nails this Halloween, how about something like this? 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 019 A Perfect Day (2 coats). The black polish I stamped with is Rimmel 60 Seconds Hot Black To Go.

I used a number of different stamping plates:
Bundle Monster BM-224, JQ-L18, and a few unbranded stamping plates.

I also tried to double-stamp with gold polish, but I picked the wrong polish. The golden hues are hardly visible – unless you look for them.

Anyway, I still like this mani. I think it looks great with the grey base, the barren tree, the spooky mansion and the bats. Do you agree? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for reading!
