Hiya guys! It's almost time to start counting down to the thirteen days of Halloween. I'm not quite sure why this is so exciting for me, but I love how all things scary get cranked up as we approach the 31st. I mentioned the other day, I'm going to this haunted house attraction this weekend so I'm obviously very much looking forward to that. And then there's all the movies. There are like a bunch of scary movies playing 24/7 on television right now so I'm in heaven haha. It's funny because I love scary and gory, but I love adorable cutesy Halloween manis instead. Today's nail art is inspired by my absolute favorite Halloween candy aka candy corn! I could eat bags and bags of this stuff and not get sick haha. Anyway here's the mani I came up with!
So what do you think? I'm not even going to try and hold back how excited I am about the way this mani came out.
I wanted to do a candy corn mani last year but this time of year was particular bad for me nail art wise. It was kind of hard to think of something outside of the norm. At the same time, I still wanted it to have a classic Halloween feel to it. Most of all, I wanted it to be simple so that you guys can try it out yourselves.
I used a black base called Lace Thong by Daily Hues Lacquer, which I reviewed yesterday. Everything else you see here was done using acrylic paint and a detail brush. After waiting for it to dry, I sealed it off with a glossy topcoat. I uploaded a quick fifteen second video to my instagram @roselynn787 showing how I created my candy corn if you're interested.
I really hope you guys like this mani. Let me know what you think and any suggestions for Halloween manis you'd like to see me attempt. Take care!
