Halloween is still quite a while away but as I like to get in to the spirit of holidays I thought I'd post the nails I'm sporting this weekend. Though expect fun Halloween nail art posts nearer the end of the month!
These nails were inspired by the Maybelline Colour Shot Polka Dots Nail Polish in Dotty which sadly isn't available to the U.K (see swatches here) but is the most perfect polish for Halloween. So I thought I'd try to recreate it with the amazing L'Oreal Confetti Top Coat over an orange base.
To start off my Halloween-esqe nails/ Maybelline Dotty dupe I decided to go for Essie Orange, It's Obvious (£3.99 - Xtras here) which is actually a really versatile orange. This bold organge shade is great to wear in summer on the fingers and toes as well as in autumn and of course for Halloween.
I then applied a single coat of the all important L'Oreal Confetti Top Coat (£4.99 - Boots here) that gives that speckled Halloween look to the nails without being too much. This applies so easily and dries pretty fast. I then added my favourite NYC Top Coat (£1.79 - Superdrug) to give a glossy finish.
If you find nail art difficult or just too time consuming these nails are great as they are clearly Halloween themed and almost look like some sort of candy on the nails!

Hope you all have a good weekend!
