I have a Halloween manicure for you today. My head was filled with visions of sweets. I decided to use props from the store candy dish. Only the wrappers were returned.
Revlon Mad About Mango forms the base for the cupcake Konad design from plate M14. Princess Polish in brown was chosen for stamping to create the look of chocolate. The funky french was painted with the mini polish Abracadabra from Color Club's Master of Disguise kit.
I couldn't resist pairing the polish bottles with a peanut butter cup!
Mad About Mango is from the Revlon Fruitful Temptations collection of scented polishes. I had mango chutney with my Indian lunch on Wednesday. The remembrance of the taste occupied me as I searched though my untried tray. I used three coats. I would recommend wearing it over a ridge filling base coat. The application is befitting of the fussy diva category. I had to be careful painting each coat to level out streakiness. The polish was viscous. I felt like I was smearing it across the nail rather than painting. Who cares about these issues? It smells like mango candy! I could begin and conclude the review there. I really wish some of the salon brands would come out with lines of scented polishes. That would be amazing for spring or summer to scent pastels or brights.
Color Club's Abracadabra has an easy to work with jelly formula. The round glitter pieces coordinated with the sprinkles on the Konad cupcake design. This look seemed to bring cheer where ever my nails flashed. It delighted children in the store, amused a young woman selling me cat food and prompted just about everyone to confess their love of cupcakes. It's definitely a joyful manicure.
Happy painting, ladies!
