Sally Hansen: Salon Effects Nail Stickers Halloween edition!

Happy Halloween monkeys! I have a little something different for you today- Sally Hansen Salon Effects! These are all Halloween themed but they're different finishes. The haunted house scene is a great glow in the dark set (excited about this one!), the glitter set is really cute silver skulls on black glitter with a pink glitter bow (blurred for your glittery pleasure), and the foil set is super cute as well with lips and vampire fangs (love this!). The cool thing about the foil is that the black is super shiny too as a foil so it all shines and is eye catchy. The last set is the real lace and I didn't use those yet because they weren't strictly Halloween, so I'll post something fun with those soon. Overall very cute Halloween edition Salon effects and I had fun spreading the Halloween spirit with friends to try these out! 
They're super easy to do by the way: cleanse and dry your nail, peel the sticker off and apply, then trim down the decal and file off the excess. Add a top coat to seal it in if you'd like. They now come off with warm water and peel right up! Couldn't be easier!

Keep an eye out for Fall, Winter, Holiday themed ones as well!

Skulls Halloween Mani BM413

JORD wood watches gift card giveaway HERE!
I have a cool black and white Halloween mani for you today. I started with two coats of Milani Black Swift (my go to black creme and it dries fast!). I used Bundle Monster 413 to stamp sugar skulls, a skeleton and a little monster guy. I used sequins to make the eyes sparkle a bit more and add color. I'm pretty surprised at how well the white stamped over the black; I used Konad white stamping polish.

Halloween Witch Art BM H07

JORD wood watches gift card giveaway HERE!
Gah! I love Halloween! This mani is more of the cheery side of Halloween with its colorful glitter and fun witch essentials. I started with 2 coats of a white creme and then stamped the witches hat and boots from the Bundle Monster H07 plate. I like that the glitter has multi colored shreds but also lays flat and is dense enough to separate and easy to apply. Digging this combo!

Halloween Kitties that Glow

JORD wood watches gift card giveaway HERE!
 Halloween time Monkeys! I'm not sure when purple became a standard Halloween color, but it's a bandwagon I was more than happy to jump on. I used two coats of Milani Imperial Purple then stamped black Halloween cats on 2 fingers only. I wanted to show off SinfulColors Splatter Spell because it has some shredded glitter mingled with hexes and all orange and black, really fun glitter! I did one coat on my index and little finger and dabbed glitter around the stamped cats. Whenever I do a single image stamp that doesn't take up my whole nail, I like to add glitter in to make it pop and be more interesting. I also used SinfulColors glow in the dark top coat under a black light to show you it's pigment (I did this mani during the day so photos in the dark was not an option). I had to restamp the ring finger cat and ended up taking off some of the glow in the dark so you can see the difference, but for this purpose, I'm ok with it, plus it kind of looks like a moon or spooky clouds.

Milani Charcoal Charm + BM 413,H06

check out the current giveaway HERE for a chance to win a gift card from JORD wood watches!
Another ghoulishly mani for Halloween! I started with two coats of Milani Charcoal Charm which is a fantastic dark graphite gray. I then stamped the scary pumpkin face and the sugar skull from Bundle Monster plates 413 and H06. I wanted to jazz it up a bit so I added orange rhinestones to the eyes of the jack o lantern face and purple rhinestones for the eyes on the sugar skull. Another simple yet fun and eye catching mani for Halloween!
