Candy Corn Carnival

 Hello, and welcome to my third Halloween nail art!!! I can't believe Halloween's only in 4 more days!!! Get ready  for some more nail art, as I'm working on a manicure to go with my Robin Hood Honey costume! :)
 But for today, we have candy corns! I don't think there is anything more iconic of Halloween besides the pumpkin and candy corn. So I chose to do the candy corn several different ways to make it more unique.

We have a gradient design on my first and ring fingers. The thumb and pink were done with, what else- masking tape!! LOL :) (Gotta love me and my obsession with tape... :) My middle finger though is definitely the most creative and different technique out of the three. It's more of an "abstract design" and I want to try it out again with different colors.

The technique I used was based off of this "Sugar Spun" design by Kristine at Pink & Polished. She has a pretty good tutorial for it, so if you're interested, check out her post!! I unfortunately had the same problem she did: impatience. Therefore, the nail didn't turn out as well as it could have...
Here is just another shot that gives a better view of my thumb. I'm pretty happy with the stripes- I think I'm getting neater!! :)

Polishes used:

  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lightening
  • NYC in Times Square Tangerine Creme
  • Wet n Wild in French White Creme

Anyways, enjoy!!!

((^_^)) Trendy Tips ((^_^))


  1. Aww I'm so happy you like my tutorial ^.^ I always feel like I explain things way too much and it gets all confusing but maybe I'm wrong :) All your nails came out so awesome! I definitely love your sugar spun nail it just looks so abstract but at the same time we know exactly what it is! And your gradients are beautiful!! I'm such a sucker for gradients I think I might be a little obsessed O.O Oh well! And I keep having issues with my tape manis how do you get your lines so straight? Mine always comes out all squiggly -_- But really great mani! Love it! :)

  2. Am I the only one with a slight addiction to candy corn this year?


I'd love to hear what you think as well as any advice or other constructive feedback you have! Thanks for visiting :)
