Candy Corn Nails

Happy Saturday everyone! I took my daughters to a Halloween scavenger hunt at the zoo today, A was dressed as Clifford the Big Red Dog, and B was a bumble bee - so cute! Anyway, since I don't dress up for Halloween, I got into the spirit the way I do best. Nails!

I know Candy Corn nails have been done a thousand times, but it's so fun, I had to jump on the band wagon :)

It's far from perfect, but it's still fun. A was thrilled with this mani and had a blast pretending to eat my fingers.

For this, I used Scotch tape, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow, and Zoya Arizona, all topped with Seche Vite. This mani took much longer than I had anticipated, since you have to let each color dry completely before applying the tape, or the whole thing would get messed up, and I got a little impatient by the time I got to the orange stripe, and my tape application was a little sloppy.

I got tons of complements on this mani, it just makes my day when people notice my nails :)

What is your favorite Halloween manicure?



  1. Love this! I don't care if it's been done before it's still absolutely awesome! You did a great job too, the colors are perfect (which I will be copying whenever I get around to trying it, I have all three of those!)

  2. Yes, these nails are done a lot in the bloggers world, but not a lot in the un-polished world. :-) These look great! Excellent work.

  3. So cute! I love this nail, and I don't care how many times I see it. :)

  4. I jumped on the band wagon too, only I did a gradient instead of tape mani. I love candy corn nails! And you didn't do too bad either :)


I love to hear from you! Please feel free to leave a comment :)
