31 Days of Halloween – DAY 11: Products to Color Your Teeth Fugly
American society is obsessed with having perfect, straight, blindingly white teeth. No one loves a beautiful smile more than I do, but ’tis the season for icky teeth. No self-respecting zombie, hobo or pirate would walk around with clean, white teeth. So for Halloween, set aside your whitening strips and pick up a bottle of “Zombie Rot” tooth color, by Ben Nye, to give your smile a little extra kick. Tooth enamel (tooth color) is a great way to enhance any Halloween look. There are a variety of colors to choose from like black, nicotine decay, gold, red and even spinach (YUCK!). There is even white, so if you want to be a beauty queen with outrageously white teeth, add a bit of extra white to your choppers. Prices range between $4 to $8 per bottle.
Here are a few brands that make tooth color and excerpt descriptions from their websites. Click on the links to find more information.

Tomorrow we will talk about how to color your teeth with this stuff. It can be a bit tricky because the mouth is a very wet area, I dry my teeth individually, right before coloring. Plus you don’t want to put this stuff over veneers or crowns. We will talk more about tooth color tomorrow. Hopefully, by then I will have a video edited and ready to go and I can show & tell you all about it!
