Halloween Nails #3: Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips in Spun For You

I have had so much going on lately that I haven't had much time to experiment with my nail polish. I have just been slapping on some awesome nail polish strips and leaving them on for a week at a time. I really do love Sally Hansen's nail polish strips a lot. They are so great. As Halloween is tomorrow I decided to wear these gorgeous nail polish strips called Spun For You. They are metallic silver with a black spider web pattern which is so cool. I've never had spider web nails before and I'm guessing that you have to be very talented to paint spider webs on your nails free hand. In reality I absolutely hate actual spider webs but these nail polish strips are the cute standard web pattern which is why they are so pretty:).

I really wish I had the time to try out spider web nail art so I would love to hear if you try it. I think painting my right hand would impossible. 

Have you ever tried to paint spider webs on your nails? How did it go? Do you think you would try out this pattern free hand?

Halloween Nails #2: Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips in Hot Wired

I am loving wearing these Sally Hansen Hot Wired Nail Polish Strips at the moment. Halloween is almost upon us and this year I am taking full advantage of being able to have themed nails. These awesome bright green nail strips have a barbed wire pattern on them which I love. They are channelling Frankenstein but I think if you were brave enough you could totally pull these off anytime if the year. It would be a pretty edgy look but I am all for a bit of edge. If you teamed them with an oversized leather jacket, floral dress and some biker boots they would really help grunge up an outfit.

What do you think of these? Would you try and recreate this look with nail polish?

Halloween Nails #1:Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips in Batty For You

Ok so I know that my posts have been rather erratic recently and well a bit non existent. I've really missed posting regularly so hopefully I will be back to regular posting ASAP. So, seeing as its nearly Halloween I thought I would do a three part series of posts on Halloween nails. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do any Halloween nail art which is a shame but I have been getting in the spirit of things with some crazy cute Sally Hansen nail polish strips. I thought it might give you inspiration to try out some spooky nail art.

The first Halloween nail strips I tried by Sally Hansen were called Batty for You. They are a gorgeous deep metallic purple colour with black bats on them. These nail strips are super cute and pretty subtle in their spookiness so if you want more subtle Halloween nails then these might be for you. I think they actually just look like animal print unless people look closely. I had a hospital appointment and these nail strips were getting a thumbs up from the nurses. 

I really love these. They secretly reminded me of being a wee kid and dressing up as a witch with a purple feather bowa :-). As always, Sally Hansen's nail polish strips did not disappoint in their quality and longevity.

Have you ever tried these? Have you been experimenting with Halloween nail art?

Jessica's "Sophia" Polish

Jessica's Sophia polish is one of my new favourite finds. It's a gorgeous baby blue coloured polish which has a very fine shimmer through it which shows up in sunlight. I have been really impressed with Jessica polish lately. I really like the formula which provides a streak free, opaque finish in two coats. The pigmentation of these polishes is really lovely. Their brushes look like they will not be as good as other brushes because they are thin, however, I have found that the brushes actually do a great job. 

All in all I really like Jessica polishes and would like to add more to my collection. I would definitely recommend this baby blue polish. These polishes are a little more expensive but they are great quality. They would make great presents.

Let me know what you think of this colour! Have you tried Jessica polish? What did you think of it?
