It’s been quite a long time since the Pampadour team has used sponge-tip applicators to apply our eyeshadows. Thanks to brands like SigmaMorphe and Coastal Scents, there are many more sophisticated brushes on the market to get the perfect crease or smoked out look. When we found one lying around the office this week, we got to thinking…how can we make use of the plethora of little applicators we’ve collected over the years? Read on for our suggestions.


The Best of Halloween Nail Art

Every nail art junkie counts down to October. Why? Because there’s no nail art like Halloween nail art. Creative, fun and spooky, some of these designs are so cool that they make more of an impact than a full-on costume.

If you’re ready to accept the challenge, round up a few polishes, a nail striper or nail art kit and get painting! If not, there are tons of cute press-ons and nail decals to get you Halloween-ready.
