Halloween Manicure: China Glaze & Cult Nails

My nails haven’t had the limelight at the Vanity lately. I have been wearing polish and enjoying a lot of the Halloween polishes I purchased lately, though. This one seems to not only be my favorite but also the one where my cuticles look their best…

The base color is Nevermore by Cult Nails. This one-coat black is a staple for me. I love it! The glitter polish is China Glaze’s Rest In Pieces. More than just a glitter polish with orange bar glitter, this one also has orange hex glitter and smaller green iridescent micro and bar glitter. I like that it gives the polish more dimension than with just the orange bar glitter alone.

I have been using Nailtiques Formula 2 as my base coat and have been for over three months. The goal is to strengthen my nails without drying them out. It seems to have helped but, I also have been putting on some sort of cuticle oil, body oil or hand lotion on at least once an hour to get moisture into my nails and cuticles.

After the Nailtiques, it was one coat of Nevermore and one coat of Rest In Pieces. I topped it off with Seche Vite Top Coat and have been enjoying my spooky nails since.

Have you had as much fun as I have checking out all the blogs showing their Halloween nail art and makeup looks? Β There are some very creative and fun looks this year.

    I have been enjoying all of the Hallowe’en nails and makeup. This time of year really sparks creativity.

    Your mani is smashing. πŸ˜€

    • Thank you. I’m too shaky to draw anything decent. But glitters like this make it still so fun to have artsy nails.

  • This turned out great! I got Nevermore at your advice and love it. I also love the Nailtiques – it really does save nails.

    • Ah, nice to know you love Nevermore! I have to have a second one as a backup. I do use it a lot.

  • You know I love Nevermore

    • It’s been fun to wear. πŸ™‚

  • I don’t usually like bar glitter, but the translucency of these is kinda fun!

    • It still behaves like bar glitter however, I don’t mind it. It IS a fun look! πŸ™‚

  • Thats an awesome glitter!

    • I’m thinking if I got some sort of cool brown as a bottom coat, I could make this into a Thanksgiving manicure.
