I know nail art is so huge right now. I am sure that many of you have come up with some really fabulous and decorative Halloween-art manicures. My manicures these days tend to be a bit more on the quick-and-easy side. It almost always seems that when I finally get some time to paint my nails, the baby wakes up! So, color plus possibly a glitter top coat seems to be about as creative as I get these days!
With all that said, I am sharing my favorite Halloween Manicure today for this installment of Makeup Wars!

While I am a lover of vampire-lore year round, Halloween really is the best excuse to vamp-it-up! Any other Vampire Diaries fans here? I will admit to being a bit obcessed with this show even though I am probably far beyond the age of their target audience, lol! As I have proclaimed many times, I am a kid-at-heart through and through.
Sure, Vampires seem to be the "it" thing these days with the likes of Twilight, etc. I have been drawn to vampire fiction since first reading Bram Stroker's Dracula in High School. After that, reading the Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles in College continued the facination. But what cemented my true love of this genre? Yes, you guessed it, years of watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Um yah, I have seen every episode countless times and can easily quote the quippy Buffster.
Long tangent aside, lets get to my Vampy Halloween manicure!
Please excuse my cuticles! They are in rough shape.
This is my first Wet n' Wild Spoilied Polish! I have eyed the displays many times but had no idea that they were this good! Now I want to go back and try more from this line!!! There really is a great assortment!
Not only is the my favorite Halloween Manicure, but also it is a fun manicure to wear beyond October and throughout the cooler months...or anytime you are feeling vampy or are in need to channel Buffy.
