The One With the Candy Corn Drip Nail Art

9:00:00 AM

Good morning, Polished World! How are you all doing on this fine, fine Sunday?  I meant to have this post up yesterday, but my days kind of blurred into one another and I thought yesterday was the 11th and not the 12th.  I literally am the worst person when it comes to remembering dates, or knowing what day of the week it is in general.  I can't tell you how many times I have to ask people what day it is.

Oh well, what I do know is that it's still October, and Halloween is right around the corner!  That means it's time for me to start creating some Halloween designs.  While on Pinterest, I came across a candy corn paint drip manicure originally created by Adventures in Acetone.  Her blog was one of the first that I followed, and I was so surprised that I had never seen this design until now.  Since I love the paint drip look, I decided to re-create it.  At 11pm the other night.  Not my wisest decision, but so worth it!

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Zoya - Storm
  • OPI - Alpine Snow
  • OPI - Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet
  • OPI - No Tan Lines
Isn't this awesome?  And yes, I used all nail polish to create the look.  I started off with two coats of my favorite Zoya polish - Storm.  I need to get another bottle of this black scattered holo beauty.  It's the perfect base coat for nail art like this.

Once dried, I added some very messy paint drips using Alpine Snow.  It was my first time making an all polish paint drip, but it was actually a tad easier than using the acrylics.  When that dried, I added the orange and yellow for the candy corn colors.  I then cleaned up any messy edges using Storm to make the paint drip more even.

What do you think? Fan of this look?

Until next time, <3.
