Candy Corn Nails!


This is something I've talked about doing for a while now. Maybe it's a little early... but I don't care :)

I started with three...THREE coats of China Glaze's Solar Power. I wish there was such a thing as an opaque yellow because that's what caused this to not look exactly like I wanted! The orange is China Glaze Papaya Punch, the most perfect candy corn orange. And the tips are just a basic Sinful white.


Overall I DO like the way this turned out, but there were just TOO many layers of polish on my nails. Theoretically I probably should've used tape for guidelines since I just winged it, but I didn't have the time or patience for tape. It was difficult to only paint half way down the nail though. I guess it still works though because the lines where colors meet on real candy corn aren't perfectly straight!

What do you think of this fall look? Something you'd wear? I want to chew my nails! Om nom nom. I always forget how much I love fall :)

  2. I LOVE THIS! I attempted to do this but it didn't turn out so good. I also used Solar Power & Papaya Punch! Papaya punch is my fav. color for Halloween orange :)

  4. I think for not taping your nails, this looks pretty awesome :-) Makes me hungry for candy corn, lol.

  6. Very cute!
    Say, how many coats of Sinful White did you have to use?
    I'm constantly on the lookout for a decent opaque white, and haven't tried Sinful's yet.

  7. @Meme: I think this was about two - three. It's not very opaque. Pure Ice's white and Zoya's white are both pretty good though, might want to check those out!

  14. Love this! But my nails are totally too short to successfully pull it off. My bff and I went to the mall today and Claire's sells fake nails in this exact design. She was tempted to buy them and I was like "Uh, no. I'll do your nails like that for free." And then I came home and saw your post! :D

  15. I have two yellows in my stash right now and I think both would work for one coat: Sally Hensen Xtreme in Mellow Yellow and Revlon Top Speed in Electric. I think Electric would probably work best though!
