I realized that I haven’t created any candy corn nail art this year oO so here are some Candy Corn Coffin nails! 😀
That random bit of thread is really annoying, the more I look at it, the more it looks like a creepy spider leg Ugh!
The polishes and other stuff I used are
- Messy Mansion – MM11
- Bundle Monster – BM-402
- Hit The Bottle – Black
- Sally Hansen – Lite
- Rimmel – Shirley Temple
- Sinful Colours – Snow Me White
- Colour Club – Antiquated
- Seche Vite
Starting with a white base I used Lite, Shirley Temple and Snow Me White for the gradient, then using Hit the bottle black for the coffins.
The little coffins are from Plate MM11 the larger coffin is from BM-402. then using a tiny brush I added the gold detail with Antiquated.
Then finished it off with a layer of topcoat!
I hope you have a lovely Halloween weekend! 😀
Today I have candy corn inspired nails!
For this mani I used
- Ivory Skull – Sally Hansen
- Sunny Days – Rimmel
- Liquid Vinyl – Orly
- Black Nail Art Pen – Barry M
- Hot Chilli Pepper – Rimmel
- Out The Door Topcoat
- Nail Tape
- Make Up Sponge
Candy Corn Nails
After my first coat of white polish had dried I used Hot Chilli Pepper, Sunny Days and Ivory Skull to create the gradient, it too ages! It took four layers of sponging to get the colours blended nicely.
The orange polish has a lot more pigment than the yellow so I found (out the hard way, this is my second attempt at this gradient the first was a tragic failure,) that only adding around quarter of the amount of orange polish to the sponge was the only way to stop it from spreading too much.
After my gradient had dried I added a coat of Out The Door… I have to admit I’m starting to miss Seche Vite, but that’s something for another post! When that had dried I used striping tape to create the triangular candy corn shape then carefully painted on a couple of coats of Liquid Vinyl and removed the tape!
I used my trusty Barry M nail art pen to curve the tips of the triangles, then finished it with another layer of top coat.
This mani also covers one of this weeks prompts for the pick and mix challenge! Which is a three colour gradient, I’ll have to see if I have time to do the other prompt later on this week 🙂
