Hocus Pocus Nails: Black Flame Candle

Inspired by the season and it’s number one movie, Hocus Pocus, I bought some polishes to make some “Black Flame Candle” nails.

I started by applying a clear coat like I always do before using a dark polish. I find it helps to keep my nails from staining. Next, a coat of black Onyx polish from the Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure line. Once dry, I used the Gilded Lily gold sparkle polish from the same line to create french manicure style tips.

I really loved this new polish. First it has a really wide, flat brush which made it really easy to use, even for my less dominant hand. The polish dried fast and the best part was the sparkle polish dried smooth, unlike most sparkly colors which can make your nails rough. I’m still doing the stress test to see how many days it lasts, but this is looking like my new favorite polish.
