Spooktacular Nails

IMG_2558

I was browsing the nail polish section at Ulta a few days ago and I was having the hardest time deciding which polish to buy, as usual. I was debating between a bright coral and a sea foam green when this beautiful polish came into my line of sight. It was my obvious best choice because fall is finally here and Halloween is just around the corner.

This is an Essie polish in the shade Haute Tub. At first glance it seems like your average black nail polish, but when it catches the light it has a sort of purple shimmer to it. I feel like the purple glitter gives the polish a perfect spooky Halloween-type touch. The pictures don’t quite do it justice, but trust me this polish is beautiful. You can find it at Ulta for $8.50. Go out and get it so you can rock some fabulous spooktacular nails with me this Halloween!

Cobalt Craze

While I am excited about fall quickly¬†approaching, part of me is still clinging onto the last bits of summer, and by part of me I mean my nails. I’m the type of girl who always has to have my nails polished, and I am always on the hunt for a new color. Bold cobalt blues were hot this summer and I was on a mission to find the perfect polish.

I have always been a big fan of Essie nail polishes, and this summer I came across a¬†beautiful cobalt blue and I fell in love. My nails were this color most of the summer, which is big for me considering black is my usual go to color. The polish is called Butler Please and I got mine at Walmart for $8.47. This may seem like a lot for a nail polish, especially when you’re shopping at Walmart but it is one hundred percent worth it!

Think of it this way, you probably pay at least $10 every time you get your nails done so just by painting your nails once you already have your money’s worth! Essie is also worth the few extra dollars over a brand like Pure Ice because the formula in general is better. The pigment is bold and the polish is long lasting. I find that this color can lean a little toward the dull side so I always use a top coat just to add that extra shine. Essie has a wide variety of colors to choose from, so go out and find your perfect polish today! And just between us, fall color or not I’ll probably be rocking my fabulous cobalt blue nails all through October.
