Candy Corn Nail Art

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  I'm proud that I'm sticking to this whole Halloween manicure for every post in October.  I didn't think I would be able to do it because I didn't plan it out like I usually do and I didn't post a nail art wheel this year, so I figured I would be out of manicures, ideas, and time.  I'm finding myself more and more inspired each day.

Today I am sharing a candy corn manicure which is one of my favorites to do this time of year!  When I first started this blog, I believe I did a candy corn design where I used striping tape.  I try to ignore them because they were not my favorite.  Then I discovered that nail artists were creating the look using gradients.  Ever since I've been hooked.

Let's take a look at this years version!

Colors Used:
  • FingerPaints - Paper Mache, Tie Dye Tangerine, Yellow Out Man
Can we take a second and talk about how awesome these FingerPaints colors are?!  I've used them a couple of times, but I don't believe I have for a gradient.  They are the most opaque polishes ever, meaning I only had to paint the make up brush one time and then dab it on the nail once.  It was amazing.  No re-apply to the make up brush, no dabbing so much that my cuticle some how ends up flooded and filled with polish.  It was a wonderful polishing experience.  Everyone needs these.

See, look how perfect!  I think this is my best attempt ever at this look.  Also my nails are a tad longer so I'm really loving that as well.  I'm going to have to trim them back though because when they get too long I always end up with a severe break because, well, I'm a klutz.

What do you think?  Fan of this manicure?  Have you tried the candy corn gradient?

I'll be back this weekend with a Halloween Bestie Twin Nail!

Until next time, <3.
