Whee!! Today is the first day of the Challenge Your Nail Art group’s Halloween Challenge. First, a little information on the group. The group was started by the wonderful Jessica who runs the blog Be Happy and Buy Polish. Every few months Jessica puts together prompts (with input from the group!) and inlinkz codes for short, bite-size challenges. There are never more than four daily prompts but each theme is different and usually touches on the time of year. What I especially love about these challenges is how unique each prompt is! And even though they are different, I can take it any direction I want. Perfect! But be warned, the link-ups are only open for 24 hours! Mwahahaha. (That was my poor attempt at Halloween humor…)

Moving right on past that…


I hope you like my classic orange & black manicure. I cheated a little since I did not do “nail art”, per say, but as you know, I am not all that into Halloween so I usually feel pretty uninspired in this department! But hey, I will take any excuse to use my Formula X Halloween topper during this time of the year!


Halloween Nail Art Challenge - Orange & Black | The Rite of Aging EarlyI used 2 coats of Milani Spotlight White and 2 coats of Revlon Parfumerie Fresh Linen as my base.

I used a sponge-tip eyeshadow applicator with Formula X by Sephora Bombshell at the cuticles.
