Halloween Nails

With Halloween just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to embrace spooky chic.

And as the scariest weekend of the year approaches there are several fun and creative ways to play with ghoulish makeup.

Face paint is probably the easiest way to create that pale, hollow, zombie look.

Wounds and scars made of latex are another popular choice.

But even if you’re not going to a costume party, there are ways to bring an element of Halloween to your holiday look.

German budget-friendly cosmetics brand Wet’n’Wild has just put out a collection under its sister-brand Fantasy Makers. The Fantasy Makers range for Halloween 2011 includes three nail varnishes, two sparkly ones and one glow-in-the-dark.

The glow-in-the-dark needs UV or blue lighting to glow spookily and bring an element of surprise to an otherwise nice party dress and a pair of heels.

Great minds think alike and American brand China Glaze has also put out three brand new nail polish shades. The black crackle-effect top coat Black Mesh, the olive-hued It’s Alive with both smaller and larger glitter particles and the glow-in-the-dark Ghoulish Glow.

When it comes to the crack-effect polishes, we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg. And with nail varnishes being the beauty world’s current obsession rest assured there are more glow-in-the-dark nail varnishes to come. © COVER MEDIA
