Wonder Woman Nail Art for Halloween

Wonder Woman is set to be one of the most popular Halloween costumes of 2017. If you’re planning on transforming into the princess of the Amazons this Halloween, we’ve got the perfect mani to match. Jayne, nail art enthusiast and blogger of Cosmetic Proof, will show you step by step how nail the look – no superpowers necessary – using the brand new Prim + Proper nail lacquers, available exclusively at London Drugs. The formula is 7-free, non-chip, and has a brilliant shine that lasts and lasts. You won’t be able to resist their Canadiana-inspired shade names, either!

Awesome Pop Culture-Inspired Halloween Costumes 2017

It’s time to start planning awesome Halloween costumes for 2017. TV studios have been particularly kind to those who are costume-inclined this year. Check out our list below for 7 Awesome Pop Culture-Inspired Halloween Costumes for 2017. And if you should happen to try any of these, please, please share a photo with us on InstagramFacebook, Twitter, or in the comments below.

  1. A Handmaid – The Handmaid’s Tale
    This one is actually easier than you might think. Grab a vibrantly red (but very modest) long dress from a second hand store, and order yourself a bonnet to match. Advanced Handmaid’s can use poster board to create the full bonnet as seen on the iconic show. Here are a few versions of the costume to inspire your rebellion. Blessed be the fruit.

  2. A Dragon – Game of Thrones
    Are you excited that Winter has finally come? What better way to celebrate than to channel your enthusiasm into an easy dragon costume for Halloween? This great blog has instructions on how to make no-sew dragon wings so that you can take flight against the white walkers or the Lannisters. You may not look as fearsome as Drogon, Rhaegal, or (gulp) Viserion, but you’ll inspire enough awe with how little time it took you to pull together this look. Dracarys!

  3. Diana Prince – Wonder Woman
    Flex your amazonian muscles in a Wonder Woman costume this year. This video from Mashable gives a method for a DIY version that isn’t super simple, but doable for those inclined to spend some time with vinyl fabric. You can also do a simple version with a graphic t-shirt and a pair of cuffs (for deflecting bullets, of course). Merciful Minerva!Halloween Costumes for 2017
  4. Redshirt – Star Trek: Discovery
    Gene Roddenberry’s universe is coming back to TV for the first time in 12 years, and we expect to see many a redshirt (or even better Lieutenant Commander Michael Burnham) on October 31st. Here’s a super cute version for little kids. Live long and prosper!

  5. Wrestler – GLOW
    There is never a bad time to bust out truly huge 1980s hair and high-cut leotards. The characters in the Netflix Original show are based on a real group of pretty awesome women, and you can honour them with your Zoya the Destroya costume. Totally rad!Halloween Costumes for 2017
  6. Your Favourite Overwatch Character
    Is someone in your household obsessed with Overwatch? Ours too. This cosplay site offers links to kits that will give you a spot-on look for any of these striking characters (we’re team Symmetra and team Lucio). Certainly the DIY-ers among you can find even more creative ways to channel your favourite warrior. Catch phrase!Halloween Costumes for 2017

Halloween Vampy Lips with NYX V’amped Up! Lip Top Coat

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could instantly double the number of lipsticks in your makeup collection? The NYX V’amped Up! Lip Top Coat will take any of your existing lipsticks and transform them into deep, vampy shades: perfect for fall, and especially for Halloween. Our Beauty Editor Britta shows us how to turn your favourite neutral or bright lippy into a dramatically darker look; the best part is this top coat is build-able, so you can apply a sheer layer for a dark tint, or apply more heavily for a super vampy, Halloween-appropriate pout!
