Kiss Halloween nail strips

October 30, 2014

These were fun! I could not pass them up in Walgreens… in September.

I waited until October to wear them, even though it was difficult for me! (Though secretly I was stoked that I’d picked them up when I did because they disappeared in two weeks.)

These simply press on like a sticker, then you file the edge smooth. They smell/feel like polish, but the tipwear is a little bit worse in my opinion. Here’s my stumpy thumb so you can see the pattern.

I really like these! Even though I’m not a big fan of the funky French manicure aspect, I would buy again. Anyone else try these for Halloween?

Essie Lapis of Luxury

Need a break from glitter? Step into the serene embrace of Essie’s Lapis of Luxury:

I had to take these in the dark so they are funky. Blue/purple is hard to photograph true to color anyway. This one is my perfect periwinkle. It’s soft and dusty, but I can’t decide whether it’s purple or blue. Perfect.

white balance!

Here’s another view with a different white balance. On my screen, this shot makes it look totally blue, but it’s definitely periwinkle. This is a 3-coater, but the coats dry glossy and smooth. This is one of those Essies that has a translucent finish, not see-through, but deep-looking? It has to be seen to be believed, and it’s my favorite thing about Essie.

I thought I’d try something new for me… a funky french!

This is my very first attempt at freehanding tips. It came out okay… perhaps it’s worth trying again! By the way, this color is part of Essie’s retail line, so you should be able to find it at CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Walmart, Target, etc. I love it when they are easy to get. :D
