8 Spooky Nights - Candy

Hmm, candy. What could I possibly do for a candy design, around Halloween time? That's right, candy corn! I know candy corn makes for an incredibly popular design, but I love it. I love candy corn - it's so bright and colorful, and it tastes great. So why not?


Instead of doing just candy corn colored stripes on each nail, I decided to make a smaller candy corn pattern. I did do the typical striped version on my ring finger nail, and I like how it serves as an accent nail!


I started off using Sinful Colors Smokin, which I actually just picked up on Monday for 99 cents at Walgreens (they're on sale this week!). I applied Smokin to every nail except my ring finger nail, which started off with Wet n Wild French White Creme. I then took my white nail art polish (with the thin brush inside) and started making white triangles randomly on each nail.


After the white dried, I applied the yellow at the bottom of each triangle, and then the orange. The white served as a nice base coat for each candy corn piece, so the colors appeared brighter than they would have right on top of the dark gray. I used the same nail art polishes to stripe the accent nail, and then outlined each small candy corn piece with Wet n Wild Black Creme and a toothpick.


Once again, another Halloween manicure I'm happy with! Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I suppose it isn't difficult to make me happy with this kind of stuff either! I'm only a little disappointed that the black started to dry and get stringy by the time I was finishing up (the thumb was last), and then my Out the Door topcoat made it streak a bit more! Oh well, I still like it.
