I’ve been totally lacking in Halloween spirit this year. Honestly, it’s not my favorite holiday. I feel like as a creative there is just too much pressure to come up with clever costume ideas and carve amazing pumpkins. Neither of which I do. But what I do love about Halloween is the CANDY. And luckily, if Sandy turns off our power, we have plenty of non-perishable Nerds and Candy Corn to survive on. So to try to get in the mood to give away my candy instead of keeping it, I’ve used the quintessential Halloween treat as inspiration for some spirited nails! (I actually made my own Candy Corn, so I’ll post that tomorrow.)
Also, I’ve been wanting to try Maybelline’s Color Show Nail Lacquer, and this was the perfect opportunity since it comes in every color imaginable. The colors are bold and saturated and the creamy formula goes on smoothly. And so far, no chipping!! I used Sweet Clementine, Fierce N Tangy, and Porcelain Party. For only $5 a bottle, I would definitely buy again! So check out the easy step-by-step process for Candy Corn inspired nails! Just don’t be tempted to chew on your nails after painting them!

Sara: So I was on Facebook the other day and this pic of crazy cool nails caught my eye. When I clicked on it the girl who posted it mentioned these Jamberry Nails. This was a new brand to me so I did some googling and instantly became obsessed! The brand is set up like an Avon, and there are individual consultants who sell the nail wraps. They come in so many cool patterns, designs and colors…I have about 10 picked out so far!
Ashley: I had never heard of Jamberry until you sent me the link…and then I wondered how or why I never heard of them! And then I had the problem of liking EVERY SINGLE DESIGN. Stripes and chevron and houndstooth…how am I supposed to choose? Totally pattern happy right now! You know I’m obsessed with nail art, and I know you are too, but I’ve never actually tried any stick-on nail wraps, have you? Do you think they work?

You know we love nail polish around here. Just wrap it up into our makeup addiction. Of course it doesn’t help that nail art is everywhere right now. I feel like every other pin on Pinterest is nail related, and I mean, how great is Pshiiit.com? So needless to say I was so excited by a recent Sephora email: 1000 Ways to Get Polished. In case you missed the email or haven’t been to their site, here are the seven trends they highlight and some of the products you can use to achieve the effects!
(Oh, they also have a YouTube channel devoted to nail art tutorials!)
