Right off I just want to admit I suck at nail art. I seriously can't even work the Konad that well. When the idea for
Makeup Wars Halloween Manicure
came about I'm all.. "OMG time to TRY and be amazing & do some nail art, I can totally do this". Nope. Luckily, a package arrived in the mail and inside lay my saviors -
Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Patch-O-Lanterns
NYC Demon Glow Top Coat
. (Yes, I literally just noticed that I photographed the non-English side of the SH box. Whoopsie!).
The Salon Effects are so perfect for holidays and special occasions when you really want a fun nail look, but completely stink at doing anything fanciful with your nails. They smooth on easily and actually LAST. Patch-O-Lanterns (aside from having the best name ever) features grinning pumpkin mouths and eyes in a sparkly orange and a black background. When you add on the NYC Demon Glow Top Coat your nails will glow under a black light. Be aware that Demon Glow will turn the black background of Patch-O-Lanterns purple, BUT you can't tell in the flash photo.
And, for fun, I used Picasa to Demon out the mani. Creeperrrrr!
For a full review and my wear test, check out my first experience with Salon Effects.
See what the other participants in this installment of Makeup Wars came up with! What WILL we think of next?!
