NOTD: Candy Corn

4 years ago

Happy Monday, everyone! I have another new Halloween design to share with you but first I`d like to address the new blog (off of luuux). We have officially moved over from our old to the new Everything, thus far, seems to have made the transition easily. There shouldn`t have been any issues with any of you finding the new location, either (should you have checked). When you type in the old address it redirects to the new domain. There was a span of, maybe, and hour where things were awkward while the dust settled, but all is well now! Moving on.... In a previous Halloween design, someone asked if I would do a candy corn manicure. We all know this has been done a bunch, but I have never shared mine. So, that is what I have for you today! I didn`t know how well I`d enjoy this manicure at first just because I`m not the biggest yellow or orange fan. Once it was complete, though, I really thought it was quite cute! I started with a base coat of Sally Hansen Triple Strong. That was followed up by two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on pinky, middle, and index fingers. Sticking with those same nails, I swiped on a horizontal stripe of Essie Fear Or Desire to the middle of the nail. Next, I brushed on Julep Daisy to the tips. The entire nail was then given a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust and sealed with Seche Vite. For the accent nails I continued (after the Triple Strong) by swiping some Sinful Colors nail art polish in Bad Chick at the tips and a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust over that. I used the Bad Chick polish to create little triangles on the base of the nail bed. Next, with a small dotting tool, I filled in the middle with Essie Fear Or Desire and the base with Julep Daisy. The whole nail was then sealed with a coat of Seche Vite. I`ll be honest, getting a clean and straight stripe isn`t the easiest to do.... as you can clearly see my mistakes here. I am often too lazy (shame on me) to pull out striping tape to make it extremely crisp and clean. By all means, if the homemade look bothers you, use some Scotch tape or nail striping tape to make it more clean. However, I am pleased with the finished look and only in my macro shots can you really see those details. When I (or someone else) looks down at my nails they look quite neat and tidy. Now I`m off to go search for some Candy Corn! This manicure has made me instantly crave the horrible sugary goodness!
