Candy Corn Nail Art

I've actually never eaten candy corn in my life - when I showed my mother this manicure, she didn't even know what candy corn was. So, I think it just isn't really a thing where I'm from. But I was seeing so many lovely candy corn gradients going around this Hallowe'en season, I had to make one happen.

I did a sponge gradient with white, orange, and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lightening for the yellow. For the accent nail, I followed this tutorial for mini-candy corns.

Unfortunately, my topcoat caused this to bubble horrifically, adding some unattractive... brown polka dots? That's what it looked like, the bubble were so deep. So the next day, I added glitter! Polish, Eh?!? Lil' Monsters upped the Hallowe'en factor, and the sparkle. I really love this glitter combination.

I know it's past Halloween, but I have one more to show you after this - think of it as inspiration for next year!
