Halloween 2012 mani 270x300 Makeup Wars: Halloween ManicureIt’s time for another edition of “Makeup Wars”. This time we are showing off our Halloween manicures. Now, I am not a nail expert, nor do I claim to be. But, I do like to play in the polish, especially for special occasions.

This time around I used Limited Edition products from NYC and Sally Hansen. The polish that I used was the New York Color In A New York Minute nail polish in “Blackula” and “Pumpkin” (*Blackula is a glossy black, without shimmer and Pumpkin is a shimmery, but not glitter) and for the top coat I used NYC’s “Demon Glow”, which glows in the dark under UV light. Since I don’t live in a cool underground club where you can dance all night under purple lights, I couldn’t get a picture of the glow for you, but I can say that it does give a really great shine in natural light. If you do wear this to the club, take a pic for me and let me know what it looks like, okay?

NYC New York Color Halloween 2012 300x200 Makeup Wars: Halloween ManicureFor my accent nail, I used one the Halloween LE Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips – it has orange bats on black background. Of course, the way I put it on, it wrinkled up a smidge so it looks like a demented Jack-O-Lantern which is pretty fitting in this case, so I’m going with it. This was the first time I had used any of these strips and after I applied the top coat, it seemed like it shrank just a bit. I’m not certain if you are supposed to wear these with top coats or not, so maybe I did it wrong, but I just wanted you to be aware.

Since my kid is now a too cool for school teenager, I don’t have much chance to really dress up for Halloween and go trick or treating any more, so I think this is about it for my costume this year. What about you guys? Do you still dress up, or at least dress up your nails? Or even do special makeup for Halloween?

And after you tell me that, make sure and go check out with the other gals have done to their nails for Halloween:

    We made a few companies very happy since we bought a lot of the same things. If I had any talent I’d buy the Demon Glow myself.
