Hobby Polish Bloggers Presents - Halloween (13 Days of Halloween)

27 comments

Hiya guys! Do you realize it's THE week of Halloween?! If you're not as into Halloween as I am then I totally can understand skipping my gushing. For me though it's time to watch horror movies every day and eat tons of candy. Okay, so I have been doing that since October began haha. But there is still much excitement to be had and much more nail art to share this week. Speaking of which it's time again for this months link-up brought to you by the Hobby Polish Bloggers group on Facebook. The theme for this month is Halloween, of course, so I decided to take on the prompt with one of my favorite candies. Candy corn!

I can't even begin to explain why I love this candy so much. Heck it even makes me sick, but I'll still eat plenty during the Halloween month. The actual candy aside, I absolutely adore how this ended up turning out. I'm glad I decided on combining the two different styles into one mani, definitely makes it that much sweeter!

For this design I used the gorgeous purple creme from Pipedream Polish called Harlequin. Everything else in was done using acrylic paint from American Craft brand and a detail brush. I ended up using some striping time to help with the lines, but I could of used straight vinyls as well. I debated whether to go glossy or not, but ultimately I had to stick with the matte topcoat like most of my Halloween designs this year.

Drawing candy corn is a lot harder than I remembered it being. It's for that exact reason I am glad I work mostly with acrylic paint and not polish. Throughout the design I was able to go back in and easily reshape the candy corn until I felt they resembled the small candy. Super easy and it definitely gets the heads a turning. I must have been asked at least half a dozen times if these were wraps or decals haha.

  5. Yes, this is super cute and I love the colors. Every year for Halloween, I attempt the Candy Corn and fail because it ends up being too difficult. Kudos to you for sticking it out and making it look fabulous!
