Sweet as Candy….

Today’s theme in the “This is Halloween” challenge is gradient

As soon as I saw the word gradient the only thing that came to mind, especially this time of year, is Candy Corn! I used to love eating candy corn as a kid but I haven’t had any in years, now I have it on my nails!

I used NYC Lexington Yellow mixed with ChG Celtic Sun, WnW Sunny Side up mixed with ChG Orange Knockout and Orly French Tip White. To create the “waxy”  finish I mixed a regular clear top coat with Hard Candy Matte top coat, this creates a finish similar to the Illamasqua Rubber Finish polishes.

    Yeah, though the shape is odd, it’s perfect for candy corn. The colors are spot on!

    I also loved Candy Corn as a kid – think I have had maybe 2 pieces in the last 5 yrs! I try not to buy stuff like that ’cause I know I will eat it – and after 50 my body just keep dropping into this old lady looking thing that exercise and diet does not change – how come I did not get Jane Fonda’s body to age with? Love your corn nails – I hope these are tips and you did not need to file your nails into this shape and deal with that down the road – but doing this shape so makes these look better than most all the candy corn manis I have seen! You nailed it.

    • lol thats the same reason I don’t buy them.Yes I used false nails for this, I’m not a fan of this shape and I think it makes my fingers look weird, although I’ve wondered what this shape would look like on me I’m glad I didn’t do this to my real nails!=D
