Sweet Candy Corn #FallingForNailArt
This month, I am again combining the Nail Challenge posts with another challenge. The NCC theme this month is Halloween, and I have some cute Halloween manis to share with you over the next couple of weeks!
Well, I think they're cute. Hopefully, I'll convince y'all.
Today's look was inspired by a Pinterest pin of IG@Selenadee_nails. I had a hard time deciding how I was going to do Halloween candy, and this look just nailed it for me!
I started off with Butter London Pitter Patter, a metallic royal purple. As with most Butters, it had a great application. Almost a one-coater for me.
I took my white striper and outlined the triangle shape of the candy corn, and then filled them in.
Because of the white background, the orange and yellow are able to pop and show their true colors.
I personally find it difficult to dot with a striper, though it can be done if you are looking for a challenge. I was already challenged by the teeny-tiny candies, so I just put some Cult Nails Tempest on my palette and dotted with that. Sometimes, that extra step may waste time, but it saves sanity. You choose what's right for you!
I loved the shiny candy-wrapper quality of the gold flakies in Cult Nails Feedback, so that went on my accents. Candy and more, MOAR candy! Isn't that what Halloween is about? No? Oh.

Candy Corn isn't my fave candy of the season, but they are winning me over as nail art! What candy are you most looking forward to having at Halloween?
