With Hurricane Sandy making its way up the East Coast, the editors here at HuffPost Style had much time this weekend (in between making trips to the grocery and hardware stores) to give ourselves a manicure. Some of us experimented with intricate designs, while others kept it simple with a single color. Meanwhile, some of our favorite DIY nail art bloggers added the finishing touches to their Halloween-inspired manis with stickers, glitter and more.
