It’s double duty mani time! I was really going to do two separate manicures for these two prompts but decided to combine them together just for the sake of expediency! (read: I was being lazy 😉 )
I went with traditional candy corn colors and put them on as a gradient. I made the mistake of choosing two somewhat sheer polishes (Cloud 9 and Let’s Meet). I originally chose them because of their glitter, but it ended up being redundant once I had the Sugar Crush on top. It took me a ton of layers to get them opaque and then I had a tonc of cleanup to do. I could have saved myself a lot of time by using more opaque creme colors.
Once I was happy with how they were blended, I applied a coat of Sugar Crush on top. I stamped the designs on and immediately regretted the paw, because it looks a bit too school-spirit-club lol (go team Candy Corn!)
- Essie – Grow Stronger Base Coat
- Sinful Colors – Cloud 9
- Sinful Colors – Let’s Meet
- Sinful Colors – Black on Black
- Sally Hansen – White On
- Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat
- Cici&Sisi – 20 & Halloween plate
Even with the paw I like how these turned out. I wasn’t loving them until after I added the stamping, but the dark stamps gave a focus to the nails and pulled my idea together, so it all worked in the end!
