What Does the Essence Magnetic Polishes Pattern Look Like? Find Out Here!

Hi everyone! This is just a quick note to let you know that I added a bit to my blog about the new limited edition Essence Magnetic Metallic polishes. While talking with @amusedPolish on twitter, she pointed out a little detail on the magnet packaging that I'd missed. I immediately went back into the photos and looked, squinting, trying to see what the magnet's pattern looks like. This is the best I could do.

So, it looks like instead of the gorgeous starburst pattern Lancome's Le Magnetique produced, these polishes will have stripes. That's if the packaging shows the actual pattern. :D

Have a great rest of the day, wherever you are! ♥

Halloween is Coming, and These Nails Are SPOOKY!

I'm giddy. The air has cooled, the skies are that crisp blue that are so gorgeous they take my breath away. It's fall, and that means it's almost time for sweaters and boots, kitty hats and scarves, and for m favorite holiday of all- Halloween! Don't get me wrong, I love Thanksgiving and Christmas, spending time with family and giving thanks for all the good things that fill our lives. But Halloween is my favorite.

I love the drama, the costuming that goes into Halloween. I minored in theatre in college and spent entirely too many hours in the costume shop, sewing costumes or building props to be worn by people. I've bled on costumes (it's good luck!!), I've taken costume and makeup classes, I've worked backstage doing theatrical makeup... I love dressing up!

I know what you're thinking. "But Laynie, this is a NAIL ART blog, where is the NAIL ART?!"  You're so impatient! Anyway... today I got an email showing me the KISS Limited Edition Halloween nails, and I thought they were so adorable that I just had to share them with you! There is a design to go with most outfits, and honestly I want them all! Just look close up...

 The nails on the left are black with tiny spiders on the tips, perfect for any gothy costume where you want spooky nails. Be a creature of the night with ebony nails!

If you're going for glam, the nails on the right are the cat's meow. Deep red nails with a black moon look amazingly retro vampy! Dita von Teese, eat your heart out!

Perhaps you want to be a seductive vampire? These blood-red nails with black scrollwork on the tips will help you unleash your inner blood lust! One wiggle of your crimson-tipped finger and he'll be putty in your hands...

Or perhaps you simply want to enhance your inner undead? With spiderwebs on your nails you can be both creepy and sexy.

Frankly, I think any of these would be a total win for Halloween. You get 24 nails in 12 sizes in each kit along with 24 press-on glue tabs. To remove them, simply soak your hands in warm water! At $3.99 a set, how can you go wrong?
