Hello lovelies,

 

I can't believe it's October again! The cold weather is slowly approaching and with it the Halloween and holiday season. I will be publishing few Halloween-inspired designs during October. I've already shown you earthy gradient inspired by Halloween and today I've been playing with textured polishes.

 

Halloween Swirl Nail Design | Textured Nail Art feat. China Glaze

 

 

I have used two textured glitter polishes from China Glaze Apocalypse of Color 2014 Halloween collection - Love Your Guts & Getting To Gnaw You. All I did was paint two coats of Love Your Guts and when it dried I painted swirls and lines with small brush and Getting To Gnaw You. Simples!

 

I find Getting To Gnaw You very interesting because I don't have any colour similar to this. It has dark brown base with copper glitter and it dries nicely textured but looks lovely with topcoat as well. I love how the textured effect 'made' the manicure, it looks so much better than classic glossy finish.

Both polishes were sent to me by nailpolish.co.uk, and they can be purchased for £4.95 each. Nailpolish.co.uk is UK online store that offers various nail polish brands including China Glaze, OPI, Sally Hansen etc. plus it offers free delivery!

 

So what do you think? Would you wear textured design like this or are you done with the texture trend? Let me know in the comments!

Hello lovelies,

 

I think it's time for nail polish from some Halloween collection. Today I have here China Glaze Love Your Guts from Apocalypse of Color 2014 collection. The collection consists of six polishes - 5 new shades and one reoccurring one, Ghoulish Glow.

 

Love Your Guts - rose pink base with black glitter and textured finish. It reminds me of an inside of a watermelon :) I'm not sure if this polish was meant to be a texture but it does look like it. The polish has great pigmentation so two coats were enough for full coverage. On the other hand the formula was tricky to apply as the polish is quite thick and dries fast. I've had to work very fast to avoid patches. As I said, it dried into a nice matte textured finish but I reckon one thicker coat of topcoat would smooth it out.

China Glaze Apocalypse of Color 2014 collection and many others are available at nailpolish.co.uk for £4.95 each! I didn't know about this website until they approached me if I'd like to do a review for them. They also offer OPI, Essie, Barry M, Invogue (of you don't know this brand, check it out), Sally Hansen, Tanya Burr and Rimmel. So I guess one more nail polish place to shop here in UK plus it offers free delivery! So the address is  nailpolish.co.uk ;) Stay tuned for some upcoming nail art...

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
