This was the first Halloween mani I did this Halloween. I am a sucker for Candy Corn. I love it. I was crushed to hear that it is the most hated Halloween treat (and I totally don't think that's true). I wanted to do a Candy Corn mani without going overboard or taking too much time. The result was...well, it was.
*1 coat Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Hardener
*2 coats Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow
*Cover Girl Boundless Color Candy Corn
*Wet 'n' Wild French White Creme
*1 coat Out the Door Northern Lights
*1 coat Out the Door
Ignore the tip wear--it took me a couple of days to snap some photos and it's the lease noticeable here. I wanted to use the candy corn accent with a French. My oranges are rather thin, so I used Myrta for the tips over my natural nails. This is a gorgeous, burnt orange with a sparkling foil finish. Unfortunately, it kind of clashes with the candy corn. I was disappointed in the color coordination here. I liked my accent and I liked my French, but together they didn't quite work liked I had hoped.
Have you ever had that happen--colors just not quite working that you had high hopes for?
