Nails are an important accent to every outfit and occasion! Thankfully, you don’t have to be a professional to easily get the coolest Halloween designs. From simple press-on nails to the recently infamous nail stickers, we’ve got your manicure covered. Then there’s always the option to do a solid black or orange polish, but why not make it a bit more fun? Take a look at these great Halloween nail designs:

imPRESS Press-On Manicures by Broadway Nails $10.99

The perfect manicure that takes only a minute is a stick on manicure! Stick on nails have come a long way and will last up to a week if applied properly (make sure your nails have no polish or oil residue before applying). Here are a few beautiful Halloween swatches that are available:

Kiss Nail Dress $10.99

My personal favorite are the nail stickers which are so easy to apply, appear flawless, require zero dry time, and last well into the week. Simply apply the sticker to a clean nail, fold over, and gently trim off the edges with a nail file. And voila, festive Halloween nails!

Maybelline New York Color Show Nail Polka Dot Nail Lacquer $3.99 each

You may have been hearing that orange is actually the new black this season… and Maybelline has you covered!  Their line of Polka Dot Nail Lacquers offer a super fun twist from having just a solid color and they are so affordable.



One of my favorite things to talk about next to makeup and fashion…is hair! I’ve recently become addicted to Batiste Dry Shampoo which to me is essential for any occasion. Even when my hair is freshly shampooed I lightly coat my roots to make my hair more workable and textured. And now with their recent release of tinted sprays, I’ve gone to dry shampoo heaven. The hints of colour come in 3 shades: Light & Blonde, Medium & Brunette, Dark & Deep Brown and Vibrant & Red (not shown below).

For Halloween especially, Dry Shampoo is essential for big hair-dos (60’s & 70’s) and keeping unruly wigs in order! And be sure to take it to your Halloween party–It will bring life back to your hair and refresh with in minutes. If you don’t need a hint of color (which will also hide greys might I add), they come in a variety of delicious scents as well. Cherry has been a big winner for me!


Halloween Fragrance?

Now if you REALLY want to go all out, Demeter has come out with a Halloween fragrance line from “Zombie For Her & Him” to “Dirt” and even “Funeral Home” scents. YIKES! But really, they don’t smell bad. Just interesting and earthy.

Zombie for her includes a combination of dried leaves, mushrooms, mildew, moss and earth with a touch of Dregs from the bottom of the wine barrel for that feminine touch.

Demeter Fragrance $25 USD each
