Looking Back at My Top 5 Halloween Nail Art Designs

* Contains Press Samples

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope your night is spooky and fun and filled with candy. :) I didn't get a chance to put together any new Halloween looks this year because for some reason my mind decided it was going to bypass Halloween and move straight on to Christmas this year. But I wanted to acknowledge the day somehow, so I've decided to do a throwback post to some of my favourite Halloween-inspired looks from the past couple of years. :) Enjoy!

Review + Tutorial // How To Repair a Mani with the Nailene Designer Collection Active Square Artificial Full Cover Nails Kit

I can't be the only one who knows the painful feeling that comes with spending the day doing your thing, planning for later in the day when you will sit down to swatch some new polishes... Only to realise you've broken off one of your nails during your travels. I hate when this happens and usually it means I need to file everything down to nubs and wait for them all to grow out. But not this time, I decided. This time I was going to try applying a single artificial nail to my nub, using the Nailene Designer Collection Artificial Full Cover Nails that I picked up at Shoppers on the way home. How did it work out for me? Check below to see!

Today I have a short and sweet review to share with you for Laneige's Water Bank Gel Cream. I know this isn't strictly nails-related and so may put some of you off, but honestly this cream is just as good for your hands as it is for your face! So both beauty lovers and nail lovers can check this review out. :)

Swatch and Review // Claire's Leopard Print Glitter Top Coat

Claire's leopard print glitter nail polish top coat swatched over grey

Hey lovelies! Remember when all the indie brands were releasing their leopard glitter toppers? I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved the look of them - especially KBShimmer's Spot Sign. Ahhh. But alas I don't really do indie polishes so I just thought about these glitter toppers... A LOT. So imagine my delight when I was at Clarie's and saw they have their very own leopard glitter top coat. Oh my gosh you guys! I was shopping with a friend and I'm pretty sure I talked her ear off over how excited I was. :)

So this is the polish I'm choosing to share with you today, as I work back into the groove of blogging after coming out of an (unplanned) hiatus. Did my dream polish hold up to my expectations once I applied it? Read below to find out!
