The Three Best Halloween Nail Polishes

One of the best nail polish brands out there is the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line. The polishes are awesome opaque colours and dry in 60 seconds. They only need two coats (sometimes even one if you’re lucky) and they always deliver bold pigmented shades. I love how quick and convenient they are, and the range of colours is really great. You can see the whole line of shades here.

The Sally Hansen Limited Edition Insta-Dri Halloween Collection consists of three perfect polishes for the holiday. They are only $4.95 each so you’ll have to scoop them up quickly before they’re gone. The three shades are  Pumpkin Queen, a perfect medium-toned orange, Night Fright, a shiny jet black, and OMGhost, a crisp bright white.

They’re all awesome on their own but they can also be used for some cute Halloween nail art ideas. I’m thinking a ghost with the white and black for the eyes, or a jack-o-lantern with the orange and black.

All three of them are super opaque and only needed two coats for perfection. I probably could have gotten away with just one quick coat but I was being extra careful so I went with two. The brush is pretty large and has a rounded tip, which I love. It covers my whole nail in one stroke so application couldn’t be easier!

NOTD: Thanksgiving Turkey Nail Art

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my Canadian readers! I hope you’re spending the weekend enjoying some delicious food and fun times with your family and friends.

You might not know this about me. but I’m a vegetarian, so these nails are the closet I get to a turkey this season. They’re pretty cute  and for somebody who isn’t very artistic, I think they turned out pretty well.

For the base colours I used a variety of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polishes. These are great for quick drying colours that are really opaque and bold. The shades I used are Sizzlin’ Saffron (yellow), Pumpkin Queen (orange), Surspice! (red), OMGhost (white), and Moracc-go (brown). I used each of these as a base for one of the nails and then layered the solid colours with a subtle gold glitter.

For the turkey nail I used Misa Nail Art Pens to make the turkey feathers. The two shades I used were 01 Crazy For Bananas for the yellow and 17 Gold Rush for the gold. Once I did a few swipes of the feathers I let that dry. Then I used an eraser on the back of a pencil, dipped in the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri brown shade to create the turkey body. When the body was dry I used a dotting tool in both black and white for the eyes, and orange for the beak.

He’s pretty cute if I do say so myself. He has a cartoon-like look and I know my little cousins will love him when I see them for Thanksgiving. This is the only nail art I’ve ever done for Thanksgiving, but now it got me pretty excited to look for more ideas for next year.

Valentine's Day Gradient Heart Nail Art

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’m one of those girls who loves this holiday because it features a lot of pink, and I love pink. Skip the roses ans chocolate but another excuse for more pink in my life – count me in! One more pink thing I added to my day today were these adorable Valentine’s Day nails that I did.

To get these super sweet nails I sponged on a gradient base with two shades of pink and white. Then I stamped the heart pattern over the gradient with Essie Licorice using the Bundle Monster image plate BM-317. The polishes I used for the gradient were China Glaze Dance Baby (light pink) and Fuchsia Fanatic (dark pink) from the Electropop collection a few summers back, used Sally Hansen White Out.

I think these nails look a little bit like candy hearts. They definitely fit the Valentine’s Day theme and are totally adorable. They didn’t even take too long to do! I have been having a serious gradient nail colour phase so this fits right in with that. The heart stamp is just cute enough to be pretty, but not too over the top. I really like these nails the more I look at them and don’t think I’ll be taking them off anytime soon.
