Spooky Beaut.ienomics: Budget Nail Art for Halloween

Mwahahahahaha *echoes off the gloopy and glistening stone castle walls of your office/kitchen/automobile*

Halloween is just around the corner and I for one am very excited. See, I am one of those occasion band wagon jumpers who will leap on a fancy dress opportunity like a witch boarding a broom. I'm not quite as into it as Heidi Klum who we know is a fan of everything spooky and  goblin-y but I will be sporting something in work to give a nod to any souls that are lurking around the Dart on the 31st.


And nail art is back with a firework BANG this season. Impress are back with some spooktacular (sorry) press-on manicures that will have all the children of the neighbourhood screaming in terror.


They come in six varieties ( we have five of these to show you here) this year and the excellent news is that the limited edition is half the regular price and you can get your claws on a pack for €4.99.



 Now some of you creative types will create your own nail art and it will be fabilis, but for the lazy people like me, these will have you out the door in sixty seconds.


To apply, all you need to do is peel off the sticky back and press on to the nail. But word to the small pawed of you out there - it's one size fits all so the thumb nail may be a little large for some (you can read our review of the originals here). That said, as a one night only solution, I think they do the job quite nicely.


For those of you who scoff at such a mere nod to the goth and require a full transformation, we'll be on hand (clawed, natch to help. Last year, our Halloween tutorial was Marie Antoinette inspired (but you still got to keep your head attached) and we've also given Maleficent a run for her money. But tell us, is there any look in particular you'd like us to cover this year?

You can pick these Impress nails up in Penneys and selected pharmacies and retailers. So what do you think? Will you be giving these a whirl come spooky time or do you prefer to go full-on costume? We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
