Candy Corn Nails

I always marvel at the skills and creativity nail bloggers possess. They effortlessly swatch entire collections without a smudge, and easily transform their tips into works of art. Do I sound jealous? I am. So I decided to take on a little nail art challenge. The Daily Nail I am not, but I had fun doing it, so that’s all that matters, right? Here are the steps:
Step 1: Cast of Characters

* Candy Corn (inspiration and snack)
* Stripe Rite in Hot Orange
* Stripe Rite in Hot Yellow
* China Glaze in White on White
* Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Step 2: White Base

I applied two coats of China Glaze White on White. Please ignore the smudge on my middle finger.

Step 3: Orange

Next I applied a band of orange along the middle of each nail. This was my first time working with Stripe Rite but it was surprisingly easy to use.

Step 4: Yellow

After letting the orange dry for a bit, I added the yellow. Like a lot of neons, the yellow was pretty matte so I would definitely suggest a top coat to make it shine. I personally refuse to do my nails without my trusty Seche Vite.

Conclusion:

Fun, candy corn nails that are perfect for Halloween! I’m definitely a loooong way from being a professional but I still think they’re cute. =)
