So, as I was having a mouth party with candy corn over the weekend, I was again inspired to recreate the sweet treats on my nails. Instead of the traditional candy corn, as I did before, I went with the chocolate caramel flavor. I know, I know. So edgy.
I first painted two coats of Chanel’s Black Satin (it was a gift, I’d never spend that kind of dough on nail polish – although it’s fabulous!), then had to wait patiently (not a skill I possess with ease) as my nails dried. After my base coats were completely dry, I attached Scotch tape toward the lower half of my nail. Below is an example from the original Candy Mani Mania.
After this step, I added a coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Nail Wear in Crushed and let it set for a few minutes. I applied Sally Hansen Xtreme Nail Wear in White Out to the tips (as I would with a French mani). I’ve gotten a steady hand from so much practice but there are strips you can place at the tip of your nail if you don’t trust your abilities. Add one coat of Seche Vite top coat and you’re done!
Now just try to not eat your nails for dessert.
