Halloween Nail Candy


Halloween may not be until next Wednesday, but most people (read: adults who love cosplay and can’t drink All Hallows Eve-themed cocktails into the wee hours of the morning on weekdays) will be celebrating this weekend. While full-on fake blood and zombie adaptations of everyone from Taylor Swift to Kim and Kanye might not be up everyone’s alley, it’s decidedly lame to show up to a party without some form of festive ornamentation—even if that just means a themed nail overlay. Luckily, there are quite a few to choose from. Right in time for the candy-coated holiday, Sally Hansen has released five new motifs for its incredibly popular Salon Effects collection, in Numbskull, a white base with black crossbones; Spun for You, black-on-silver spider webs; Batty for You, black winged creatures on a purple base; Patch-O-Lanterns, orange eye and mouth cutouts on a black background; and our personal favorite, How Corny, which literally amounts to a handful of candy corn. The drugstore brand has some competition from Kiss, another mass nail giant that has debuted a range of easy-on imPRESS tips in designs like webbed French tips, and a host of limited-edition prints for its Nail Dress line as well, including a super fun mix-and-match, black-on-orange spider print. It’s not, say, a really believable Honey Boo Boo outfit, but it’s something.

Available at drugstores.
