Sparklea Nail Polish - Halloween Polishes (& Nail Art)

Hello! Today I have some of the recent Sparklea Nail Polish Halloween releases to share. Lea released two separate Halloween collections - a four piece Goosebumps collection, and a Hocus Pocus trio. I would have loved to grab all seven, but narrowed it down to my favourite four. I've also added some Halloween nail art over each polish. Read on for that and my full swatches!

These first three polishes are all from the Goosebumps collection.

'Attack of the Jack O'Lanterns' is a dusty orange with shimmer. It has a lovely smooth, easy to apply formula. I could just about see my nail line on one or two nails after two thin coats, so I did add a quick third. This wasn't really necessary though - two normal coats would be fine! Below is three thin coats with topcoat.

'Welcome to Dead House' is a bright shimmery purple. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. This has some lighter patches and minor streaks on the first coat, but covers easily with a second. Below is two coats with topcoat.

'Monster Blood' is a bright green with shimmer. This has a very smooth and easy to apply formula. It is slightly sheer on the first coat, but covers evenly. A second coat builds it to full opacity. Below is two coats with topcoat.

This next one is my pick from the Hocus Pocus Trio, 'Mary', a rich red holographic with added silver flakes. Again, the formula is smooth and easy to apply. This does start off slightly sheer but builds up nicely. I could just about see my nail line after two coats so added a third to make sure. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Now for my nail art. To save this post getting too long, I'm just going to share a quick picture of each mani. I'll share the individual details for each on my Instagram page (here) over the next few days!

What do you think? I have to say that I'm very happy with my picks. These polishes are just perfect for Halloween! They are all classic Halloween colours, but are also still unique due to the added shimmers and flakes. I really loved adding nail art to each one to create my creepy, fun manis.

Unfortunately, the Hocus Pocus trio is currently sold out. However you can find all four polishes from the Goosebumps collection on the Sparklea website here. Each polish is £6.50 for a 10ml bottle.

Hope to see you in the next post!
