nails inc

As someone who’s self-manicure challenged, I can definitely see the appeal in a new product called Paint Can.

Paint Can by Nails Inc is spray-on nail polish that’s designed to stick to your nails but not your skin. All you need to do is spray paint your nails for about 20 seconds, let it dry and then wash your hands with plain old soap and water. The polish washes off your hands and stays on your nails.

Paint Can will debut on November 12 and it’ll retail for $11 a can. I’m not sure if I’d use it for when I need flawless nails and a perfect manicure, but it would be an awesome time saver on a day-to-day basis.

See it in action after the break.

crimson peak ghost

If you haven’t seen Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak yet, do yourself a favor and go see it now. It’s a stunning film, and the sets and effects are simply outstanding (which is to be expected from a del Toro film).

But, if you’re like me, you probably thought that del Toro used CGI to create all the ghosts. The director is known for using practical effects and makeup in his films, so a few fans were disappointed with all the computer-generated ghostly effects.

However, del Toro has revealed that the ghosts were created using a blend of practical effects and CGI. He Tweeted some behind-the-scenes photos (which you can check out after the break), that show makeup artists creating some crazy-good ghosts with live actors. Apparently, CGI was only layered on top of the physical costumes to create a fantastically hazy aura.

killing joke makeup

Everything was coming up Joker in makeup legend Rick Baker’s family this Halloween. Can you believe that this Killing Joke version is actually his daughter Veronica?

His other daughter Rebecca was Heath Ledger’s iconic Joker (unbelievable), Rebecca’s husband was The Man Who Laughs (the original inspiration for the Joker), Baker’s wife was Harley Quinn, and Baker himself went for the New 52 Joker.

Seriously, how cool would it be to have a dad like Rick Baker at Halloween?

Makeup artist Kenzie Gregg has created a cosplay that is wickedly fantastic. With elegantly exaggerated ears and subtle brown and cheek forms, she has accomplished something that’s both creepy and beautiful. What’s even more impressive is that Gregg completely designed, sculpted, molded, applied, and painted this character herself.

Check more photos of the character and the creative process after the break.
