Blingy Halloween Skulls

Orly Rebel Chic Kit w/ Skull Gems and Studs- Halloween Nails

For my next Halloween look I used the Rebel Chic kit from Orly. This is one of my all time best finds at Sallys. It was marked down to $4.99 already and I got it during the half off clearance sale, so about $2.50 for all of it! Everything in the kit goes so nicely together, although maybe not in as much excess as shown on the package. I've chosen to use just a few elements at a time for a more understated look. You can also check out this other manicure I did earlier with this kit to see another way to wear these elements.

I mentioned it in my last post, but I'll say it again. Iron Butterfly, the polish that came in this kit is fantastic. I'm wearing two coats here. The formula is easy to apply and dries super fast. I really like the metallic shimmer with the matte finish. The only drawback is that the wear time is a little less than a typical polish before it starts chipping. I also had a bit of trouble keeping the skull on. The back is curved to help it lay flat on the nail which is great. It lasted about 3 days before it came off (I was being pretty rough with it). After it came off the first time I re-glued it 2 more times to extend the manicure, but it popped off much more quickly when I had to glue it over the residue that was left over from the first time.

This is the kind of look I could wear any time of the year. In fact, I did this manicure in June and never got around to posting it until now. This is what I had on for my last day of work at my old job, and it felt so right. I miss everyone there, but I'm so glad I took the risk and moved on.
