Last year, I created this fun candy corn manicure, and one year later it is still one of my absolute favorite nail designs. Halloween is quickly approaching, so now is the perfect time to try out this easy and festive fall manicure.
PAINT NAILS YELLOW
I used two coats of OPI Need Sunglasses? because I love how bright it is, but pretty much any yellow should work. Make sure this is dry before moving to step 2.
PAINT ORANGE STRIPES
I freehanded the stripes, but you could use french nail guides to make them neater (but definitely make sure the base coat is dry if you do that). 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.
TOP COAT TIME!
To finish my mani, I applied two coats of Seche Vite. This helped to smooth out the layered feeling, plus it gives tons of shine.
Now go show off your fabulous Halloween nails :)
