Halloween Manicure for my Costume! OPI Blue My Mind and China Glaze Lighthouse

The man, Coach Taylor.

Let me give you guys a little background on my Halloween costumes. I have this thing were I dress up as a male every year for Halloween. It started a few years ago when my best friend and I were Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World and has spiraled our of control since. And my affinity for television series lead me to decide to be Coach Taylor (a la Dillion Panthers) from Friday Night Lights this year. Some of you might think this is bizarre and whacky and all I have to say  is, well, I am a little bizarre. But it’s fun and it is Halloween after all!

Picking out the perfect Panther blue for my large collection of blue nail polishes was not very easy. But I ended up choosing two polishes that I really love for their vibrancy and overall they are pretty polishes.

Metallic royal blue with glittery yellow / gold

Despite the erratic nature of an “every other nail” manicure, I think this manicure looks pretty good. I really like the texture difference between the smooth, slick finish of Blue My Mind and the gritty, sparkley finish of Lighthouse. It adds for extra oomph and intensity. It works for a special, fun occasion manicure.

Easy, smooth application on both polishes.

I ended up using three coats for both polishes.  As you might know, Lighthouse is a little sheer on the first coat, but builds up very nicely by the third coat. Blue My Mind is overall pretty saturated and applies very easily on the nail. I probably could have gotten away with two coats, but added another for good measure.

  1. My boyfriend & I are dressing up as Wayne & Garth for Halloween! I’m just wearing orange nail polish with black glitter over it. I’ve never seen Friday Night Lights. I’m gonna go check if it’s on Netflix because everyone says it’s so good.
