When it comes to Halloween, I’m not the biggest fan of it. Perhaps it’s because I’m not the biggest lover of scary movies, or clowns or anything that could potentially make me want to sh*t my pants. However it’s the time of year when so many people get so creative with make-up and outfits. As you all know by now, The Dizzying Heights is not a make-up or beauty related blog, but I do on occasion paint my nails (as rare an occasion that is!). I did want to make more of an effort with my nails because I’m not as beauty or make-up obsessed as perhaps my peers are. So when I was sent two gorgeous nail polishes by Leighton Denny*, I thought it would only be right to create some looks for Halloween!
The first look is super simple, using the Leighton Denny Miss Behavin nail polish. The actual nail polishes are such good quality and they wear really well too. For someone whose nails chip constantly, this was amazing news.
I basically used the orange jewels to complement the dark, bold navy blue and give it a simple yet fitting colour combo for Halloween (navy for dark nights and orange for pumpkins). It really wasn’t too difficult with the right glue and I actually think it still looks so classy and cute.
The second look is my favourite look because it was so simple and so effective. I used the black colour from Leighton Denny called Maneater this time, as well as a white nail polish and a nail tool. Having said that you definitely don’t need to have any kind of fancy tools, you can use things that you already have in your house, which makes these nails perfect.
I let the black polish dry, then painted two white spots on top. After waiting for the white spots to dry, I used a nail art tool to draw two smaller black spots to make eyes. I finished it off by using a top coat.
