Sally Hansen Costume Glitters AND What I Am Wearing for Halloween 2014

**Press Sample**

Since I decided not to dress up for Halloween this year- mostly because I ran out of time- I decided to do it big on the nails and makeup. This year I blinged it out with GLITTER and MATTE. Two of my favorite polishes in the world. Everybody feels better with a little glitter on their fingers and I feel a little better with my nails matted out.
 First, the polish is a glitter topper in a clear base. It has silver holographic squares, hexes and micro glitters throughout. It applied really well and was not clumpy. I had two coats on each finger and let the first coat dry a little before applying the second so it wouldn't drag the undies with it. 
 Now, the design!! I did a little skittle for some pizzaz. I used the matte polish to add some vampy french tips and stripes to kick it up a notch. Overall, I think this was a great addition to my Halloween 2014 holiday. What did you wear on your nails?

NYC New York Color Midnight Beauty 2014 Collection

**Press Sample**

Today, I have some pieces from the NYC New York Color 2014 Limited Edition Midnight Beauty Collection. I have make up, I have lipstick, AND I have nail polish.All of these are perfect Halloween colors if you need to add any more to your collection. and if you get a chance to pick any of these up, they are all reasonably priced. I have seen the eye shadow, the lipstick and the nail polishes in previous collections, so if you missed them this time they may come back around again. 

Animal Instinct
I love most of my NYC New York Color polishes that I own, but this one I must say I am slightly disappointed in. I had to apply 3 coats just to get over the streaky-ness of it. I looooove the color so much and I wanted it to work so bad, but it was just really difficult to work with. I am hoping that they can reformulate this polish and make it work, because the orange shimmer is just awesome and I am totally not an orange person.

I'm Not AffRED
This is a sexy vampy deep red color that leans very closely to a jelly. I used about 2 coats with this one and 3 in some areas just to get full coverage since it is a jellyish polish. The application of this was much better than the previous one. For $1.99, it is a great addition to any vampy lovers collection.

Limited Edition Individual Eyes Eye Shadow Palette in Hate the Light
This eye shadow palette features a step by step guide the to perfect smokey eye including a primer and a highlighter (illuminator). Each of these did create a lot of fallout, but blended well with a good brush. This palette does come with a brush, but I recommend using your own set of brushes. A good blending brush is a must especially with a smokey eye look. You can get this at most local drug stores for only $4.99.

Expert Last Lip Color in Red or Alive
This is an orange red color. I used 2 coats on my lips for this color. I am always surprised in NYC New York Colors Lipsticks. For only $1.99, this was a great application, a great finish, and lasted quite a long time.
 This lipstick had a semi-gloss finish. I have been really digging matte lipsticks lately and shying away from ultra glossy ones. I am happy this this one was not drying, but at the same time was not ultra sloppy when applying.

Sally Hansen Halloween 2014 Fuzzy Coats

**Press Sample**


Fur-ankenstein is a black and light green bar glitter in a clear base. Now, there are two parties in the  bar glitter camp. You either love it or hate it. I am a bar glitter lover, so I love all of the Fuzzy Coat polishes. These were applied by doing one coat of straight brush strokes and then filling in by dabbing. 
 I kind of wish that this was glow-in-the dark. That would have made this awesome!! I used Fur-ankenstein over OMGhost below and Night Fright above. 

Witch-ful Thinking

Witch-ful Thinking has black and orange bar glitter in a clear base. I applied this in coats the same way as above. 1 coat with a swipe and 1 coat with a dab. 
 I wish I would have left more time for nail art, because this would have been awesome with some little hair monsters. Same as above, I used Witch-ful Thinking on top of OMGhost and Night Fright.
If you love these, you can find them and the entire collection here

Little Monsters Halloween Fun with Jindie Nails

More Halloween madness with some Jindie Nails love. 
I got Screaming Halloween on clearance last year and had to wait this whole time to wear it. Now, is the time!! Wahoooo! I love this. It is such a cute Halloween color with super cute Halloween glitters. If you can snag or find it anywhere, I would totally grab it. 
For my two middle fingers, I used some other Jindie Nails favorites and dotted little monster dots on them. They kind of remind me of inspired by Monster Inc. They are super cute and I love the endless Halloween combinations.
