Happy Halloween with Sally Hansen and Rimmel!!

*Some products sent for review*

Happy Halloween!!!!! Hope everyone had a fun Halloweekend and maybe got a chance to dress up, because that's the best part of Halloween! Sally Hansen and Rimmel London sent me some products (both new and old) recently that are just perfect for Halloween. I used some in my Halloween mani (above) and others over the weekend for a costume party. Let's start with my NOTD- a graveyard scene with a twinkling gradient night sky. For the tombstones, I used my favorite tombstone vinyls from What's Up Nails and Sally Hansen Hooked on Onyx. It was important to me to have a really pigmented jet black polish for these, as you really can't do a second coat with vinyls, and Hooked on Onyx worked perfectly here.

For the night sky gradient, I used one coat of OPI Angel with a Lead Foot, then sponged on OPI I Saw... U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw and OPI Reach for the Sky. I topped it off with one layer of China Glaze Fairy Dust before adding the tombstones. Love love love the finished product and super happy that I had some time to do this for Halloween!

Over the weekend I wore this easy mani. This is two coats of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Blacky O, with freehand designs using the new Sally Hansen I 💛 Nail Art Pen in Orange. This pen is probably the best nail art pen I have ever used. Usually I find them to be kind of a pain, either the polish doesn't come out enough or it floods your nail and ruins any design you might be going for. This one is just right, enough polish comes out to write or draw, but not so much that you can't control where it's going. I did this in a huge rush and it still came out half way decent for me and freehand designs haha.

My pinky nail is supposed to be googly eyes but I didn't really have enough room. Don't judge.

Rimmel London also has two great new products that are perfect for Halloween makeup. Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color in Pitch Black is a super black matte liquid lipstick (top pumpkin swatch in the picture above). It is a very saturated black color. I am not the world's best applier of matte liquid lipstick, but it was pretty easy to work with and didn't dry down so quickly that it became patchy. I just had trouble smoothing out the edges and couldn't figure out what to use as a liner! My new favorite Rimmel product is the Scandaleyes Bold eye liner (bottom pumpkin and line swatch in above picture). It has a very cool innovative round tip that I found to really help me apply the liner evenly. I wore this liner over the weekend and it lasted perfectly, no flaking or smudging at all. It's very very black too, which I prefer!

If you are in need of any last minute Halloween supplies, these great Sally Hansen and Rimmel London products are all available at a drugstore near you!
