I’ve been rummaging through my favourite lip and nail colours to try and find shades that I can wear to a Halloween party. On a daily basis I tend to shy away from darket colours as they can be a bit harsh for my age and colouring but still I’ve found that I’ve got quite a wide range to chose from – ranging from reds so dark they’re almost black to moody and mysterious mauves. So I started off by putting together a shortlist of five polishes:
China Glaze – Midtown Magic dark brown base with red, gold & green shimmer £.3.95
OPI – Black Cherry Chutney blackened red with a subtle shimmer £11.95
All That Jazz – Simply Irresistible blue-purple shimmer £5.95
No.7 Stay Perfect – Temptress dark crimson/blackberry £6.00
Nails Inc – Victoria dark cherry red £14.00
And five lip colours:
Makeup Revolution – Private Members Club darkest vamp red £3.00
Essence Matt Matt Matt – It’s a statement deep burgundy £2.30
Vincent Longo Lip and Cheek Stain in Baby Boo rose pink (but it looks like blood in the tube which is why it made the first cut!) £18.50
Collection Deluxe Lip Colour – Dancing Queen mauve shimmer £4.19
W7 Fulltime Lip Colour – Angel Dust deep plum £1.99
During the day I’ve matched up two lip colours and two nail colours as my final picks but I can’t decide which to wear – so it’ll just have to wait to the last minute on Thursday. My top two pairings are (on the left) Temptress and Private Members Club and (on the right) It’s a Statement and Victoria.
I’ll let you know which I choose on the day and what other products I team them up with – probably on Instagram so be sure to look out for that and follow me there: Instagram
