Well it would seem that all of my posts this week have had a Halloweeny feel to them in one way or another so I thought I might as well see out the week in spooky style.
Now eagle eyes readers of this blog may have noticed the title and be saying:
But Chippy you said you weren't going to buy any more nail varnish for a while!
That is true - I did post a couple of weeks ago that I had placed a ban on myself when it came to buying nail varnish and lip balm but what I used for this nail art I've had for quite a while anyway.
No I used the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips. I don't know if you can still get this particular design anymore as I got these from a discount make up shop. I saw these and just had to get them - and in the shop in question they were only £2.99!
So they were easyish to put on. Peeling them off the backing paper was a bit precarious - you know how tape loves to stick to itself? Well if you are not careful these will do the same. You get 16 in a box, which are split in to 2 packets.
They were a little fiddly at first but I got the hang of it... eventually. And as they are supposed to be 'real nail polish' I put a top coat over them.
So endeth the Halloween festivities - next stop Christmas! (unless you are in the US and then it's Thanksgiving)
(actually I tell a lie - in the UK we have Bonfire Night coming up on 5th November... but then it's Christmas!)
Update 16/11/12 - these lasted about six days before they started chipping. On the seventh day I got fed up of the edges that were lifting up catching in my hair so I removed them. A word to the wise the spider web bits are a bit like glitter polish - a pain to remove!
