PAINT NAILS YELLOW
I used two coats of OPI Need Sunglasses?, but pretty much any yellow should work. Let that dry for a few minutes before moving to step 2.
PAINT ORANGE STRIPES
I freehanded the stripes, but you could use french nail guides if that is easier. I made the stripes curved, because I thought that looked more candy corn-like. To do this, I painted from the left of the nail to the middle using the flatter side of the brush, then I painted from the right side over, connecting the two arcs. Then I filled everything in up to the tips of my nails. For this, I used OPI Flit A Bit. Let that dry before moving to step 3.
PAINT WHITE TIPS
Complete the candy corns by adding white tips. This can also be done with french nail guides, as long as the polish below is totally dry. I freehanded this using the Kiss Nail Art Striper in white. This has a really thin, tiny brush, which is perfect for finer detail work.
To finish my mani, I applied TWO coats of Seche Vite. This helped to smooth out the layered feeling, plus it made my nails shiny and it has protected my mani for the past five days (no chips!).
Now go show off your fabulous Halloween nails :)
I hope you give this mani a try (and I hope this tutorial helps!).
If you do a candy corn mani too, I'd love to see pictures!!
