Is Halloween Getting Rust-y? Try Forever 21’s Version

Oli Oli In Come Freeeeee!

Only one more day left to call out Halloween polishes. After that, I’m doing ‘Fall’ manicure swatches. OK, maybe they could be Halloween ones still. And, just because I didn’t get in all the Halloween looks I wanted to, doesn’t mean I can’t morph them into Thanksgiving/Fall swatches. I’m getting into this ‘my blog, my rules’ thing. Bwaahaaahaaa!

This polish definitely fits into both categories…

‘Rust’ is a copper glitter overload from Forever 21’s love and beauty. And one thing about Forever 21 polish, most of the glitters are dense and easy to use. This one makes coverage by using a lot of different sizes of glitter. Look close…

Hex, micro and regular sizes galore. And these babies didn’t have any issue laying down on the nail.

I swatched up some orange and black fun…

Starting from the left: Forever 21’s ‘Rust’ over Cult Nails’ ‘Nevermore’; ‘Rust’ all by itself; ‘Rust’ over Zoya’s ‘Arizona’; Pure Icing’s black crackle over Zoya’s ‘Arizona’; ‘Arizona’ all by itself; and last is Cult Nails’ ‘Nevermore’ all by itself.

I really liked how ‘Rust’ seemed to be glowing orange embers with ‘Nevermore’. I did a manicure with it and it was definitely THE Halloween look…

How’s that for some fire on the fingertips? ‘Rust’ wasn’t terribly hard to remove. Since ‘Nevermore’ is a one-coat polish (love that!!!) and I only used one coat of ‘Rust’, this was a quickie.

Are you finished with Halloween looks and ready to move one? I feel I am.

Pure Ice: Halloween Crackle Looks Get You Into The ‘Spirit’

I’m all about getting the best deal for my money. And Pure Ice polishes deliver. Their color range is huge. Even their crackle polishes come in 11 colors. And, at $1.99 each, you can get several.

Here are some that will get your nails in the Halloween spirit…

For the nail wheels, I started off with Cult Nails’ ‘Nevermore’: my go-to one-coat black polish. The next swatch is the yellow ‘Catwalk’ crackle over the black. And then, the Shattered’ green over black creme. The far right is Pure Ice’s black crackle, named ‘Strobe Light’ over L’Oreal’s ‘The Temptress’ Touch’.

And then I just went Pure Ice Crackle Happy…

‘Catwalk’ over black on my thumb and middle finger. ‘Shattered’ over black cream on my index and ring finger. On my pinky, ‘Nevermore’ by itself.

Wait…I still have more to show you…

Random polishes with Pure Ice over them. Check out the middle finger: that’s an orange glitter with ‘Shattered’ over it. The pinky is an orange and yellow glitter with ‘Strobe Light’ over it.

So, you can see that it would not be hard to come up with some spooky, crackle nails for Halloween. And, just one bottle of crackle from Pure Ice, you can make lots of combos with polishes you already own.

Pure Ice is found at Walmart stores.

The Pure Ice crackles were sent to me for my review and my honest opinion. Cult Nails sent me ‘Nevermore’ for promotional use as well.
