New York-based high-design nail studio, Paintbox has unveiled their Halloween Capsule Collection and thanks to the unique designs and fun colors, it’s the perfect way to celebrate the holiday. Edgy and elegant, the designs are available in both classic polish ($55) and gel manicures ($65) and are completely customizable.
The four frightfully gorgeous new looks are available in four styles before November 2:
Raw Talons - a ten-finger style inspired by trompe l’oeil techniques. A nude base gives way to wicked black triangles painted to mimic claws. And though they are introducing it at Halloween, we like this look so much we’d wear it year round.
Ties That Bind - another ten-finger look, this time with bondage-based inspiration. Black polish creates a cage against bare nails and Swarovski crystal accents round out the manicure for a style that’s more glam than ghoul.
Bone To Pick - a copper skull and crossbones accent nail is the perfect way to dress up a single-color manicure.
Zombie Invasion - another accent nail option for the timid few. We love this look for its Tim Burton-esque vibes and the way it plays nice with just about any color polish at the base.
Paintbox is located at 17 Crosby Street in SoHo. For more information, or to check out the salon, go to paint-box.com.
