Happy Halloween. I love that Halloween falls on a Monday so I can do an extra special Manicure Monday. How cute are these Halloween Nails? I do feel I’ve cheated a little though. But I couldn’t resist these. I went to the #BloggerHalloweenParty on Saturday and wanted to do something a little different with my nails. I remembered I had these Halloween Nails from last year and thought I’d try them out.
This is a set from Elegant Touch, from their 2015 Autumn range. They had similar designs available this year and I’m sure they will next year too. This was my first time ever applying/wearing false nails so I wasn’t expecting anything amazing. I was over the moon with the final result.
These Halloween Nails are applied using a double sided adhesive gel. I wasn’t sure what to expect of a gel, surely they couldn’t stay on for long? Especially with my lifestyle. Boy was I wrong. I applied these as per the instructions which were so simple to follow. Stick the adhesive gel to the nail, smooth, peel off the protective layer then stick the nail to the other side. I then held each nail for around 20 seconds to ensure the nail was fully stuck to the adhesive gel. It took me around 10 minutes from start to finish.
Considering this was my first time applying false nails I think I’ve done a pretty good job. They’ve now lasted 3 days with no sign of movement. They’ve withstood cooking, cleaning, showering and of course the #BloggerHalloweenParty. I’m sure they’ll last a good week, if not more.
Elegant Touch Nails start at just £4.65 and are available on their website or Boots online or in stores. They’re currently 3 for 2 at Boots too. I’m eyeing up Glitter Lining and Deck The Halls from their House Of Holland Collection.
What do you think of these Halloween Nails? Have you tried Elegant Touch Nails before?
Until next time,
Looks awesome ” 🙂

These look great. Makes me wish I didn’t bite my nails so much 🙂
The design of the nails is so cute, perfect for Halloween! And I can’t believe they are so cheap! Not sure I could wear them though as I get my nails done with shellac and I can’t stick anything on them. Only my nail technician knows what he’s doing, as I am unable to paint a single straight line on my nails.
Hey, those look cute. That’s a nice idea for halloween. I never glued nails on my own nails and I would be scared they would come off so I am happy to hear you had them for a while. Did you also wear an outfit or did you just put on some nails?

Wow you’re so talented! Nice work! 🙂
Cassandra Jane says
AHHH! Your nails are wonderful. I wish Halloween lasted longer. …like perhaps all throughout Fall, hehe.
Ah thank you. I know right. I only kept these on for about a week. Christmas nails next…

I find nail art very fascinated but back off by the fact that how would wear out when I do different household stuffs. But glad to know yours withstood daily chores. And they look amazing.. Loved it
Thank you. Yep I was impressed too!
Sainab Sharif says
Your nails are so cute! I love how each one has a different design on it. Amazing how they’ve lasted 3 days as well!
That’s what I loved about these ones too. I took them off last night. They would have lasted longer too.
Noel Lorenzo says
I love your halloween nails! So creative, pretty and clever 🙂 I must try that sometime!
Thank you. They’re so easy, I’m looking forward to trying others.

I’ve never tried fake nails before, actually I have but they never seem to fit my nails enough for them to look close to “normal”, thus I’ve given up and just stuck with painting my nails instead! These sound great though! Good to know they’ve lasted for a long time.
You should look out for these. I’ve got awkward shaped nails yet these seem to fit perfectly.
Trippin' Turpins (Kelly) says
Wow! Stick on nails have come a long way from last time I tried to apply them….. perhaps 20 years ago! LOL. They look great.
Haven’t they? I was so pleased with the final look.
These are so cute! I couldn’t decide on what I wanted to do with my nails for halloween so I just did black.
Blacks always good. I was going to get a bit more creative but my nails look awful at the moment.
Your first time applying them? You could have fooled me! They look amazing!
I know I was so surprised myself. Definitely buying some new sets.
These are so fun! And perfect for today! I’m wary of doing my own nails (mainly because I suck lol) but you make it sound so easy!
Thank you. These really are SO easy.
Those are so cute, and I love the pumpkin lights! I’ve never tried anything like this because I have small fingers and tiny nails, but they’re so cute that I’m sorely tempted!
Thank you. My fingers and nails are tiny too and these fit perfectly. You should have a look as I’m sure you’ll find some to fit.
Victoria Pease says
Love these! I have tried Elegant Touch before and the designs are beautiful but despite the packs coming with a plethora of nail shapes, there are never any that fit a couple of my fingers properly as my nails are quite flat! Boo! But these look lovely on you and very festive!
Ah no that’s a shame. I found these to fit my nails quite well. Thank you. I love them.
Tania Potter - Soul Sense Coaching says
You did and excellent job considering it was your first time and they are so cute! What a fun way to really make the most of Halloween!
Ah thank you. I thought so. Hopefully it wasn’t fluke as I’m sure I’ll be buying many more.
