Halloween Mani: Candy Corn with a twist!

Happy Friday! Last night I went and bought Degen his Halloween costume...this year he is going to be a football player, lol! He didn't seem to hate me too much when I put it on him, I think the fact that I bribed with with a squeaky stuffed eyeball helped too though.

Today I have a little Halloween-ish mani that I did the other night. Not sure if this is what I'll end up wearing on Halloween or not. I have a few other ideas I want to test out! I decided to try my hand at Candy Corn nails, they are SO cute and easy! I've seen them done a bazillion times on blogs and youtube but I've never tried them myself. I fudged a couple of the lines between the orange and the yellow, but I think in real life I'm the only one who would notice that! The candy corn nails are pretty bright and in your face so I decided to do a fun dotted accent nail to break it up a little. Wouldn't you know, the accent nail ended up being my favorite part. I kind of love dotted mani's, it's a good way to uses polishes that I forget I love! I do them quite a bit and never post them, maybe I should though! The polishes I used for this are OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Need Sunglasses, OPI In My Back Pocket!

Are you guys planning any fun mani's for Halloween? I'd love to hear about them!



Degen blinking while wearing his halloween costume from a few years ago thanks you for you time!

He was a sailor this year, there was a cute hat but he refused to wear it!

  13. I'm just going to do orange base with black shatter. Halloween is about the only time that shatter looks good, imho.

  20. I'm definitely using some glow in the dark polishes. Maybe a crackle/shatter on top or a glow in the dark nail with "dripping" black tips.

    I love dots! Such a great way to use polishes that don't really flatter my skin tone and so darned cute.

  21. Totally inspired by this business. I think I'm going to have to rock candy corn nails this weekend. :) I also want to do a funky french with orange and green so I have pumpkin nails. I've also been rocking some of this year's KISS Halloween decals - they're so cute! <3

  28. It's funny that you posted this. I had found your blog while looking for some nail ideas for Halloween, a few days before you posted this. I ended up doing candy corn with a black shatter over it. When I opened up your blog the next day, your candy corn mani was up! :)
