Candy Mani Mania

While stuffing my face with this season’s delights, I had an idea for a manicure that will make your sweet tooth ache.

Candy corn craze!

I had the nail colors on hand (because I’m a polish whore) but all can be found at your local beauty or drug store.

Sally Hansen in White Out, China Glaze in Solar Power and Sally Hansen in Crushed.

After a base coat, I applied two coats of Crushed.

Wait for these coats to dry completely (I had a small trial and error with this because I have no patience).

Then, place scotch tape in the middle of your nails.

Once the tape is secured, apply one coat of Solar Power.

Be sure your nails are semi-dry before removing the tape. Then remove by pulling the tape from one side to the other, instead of up and down.

Add the white tips, as you would with a french mani, apply a top coat and try not to snack on your own nails.


Mama’s Mani

We got spirit, yes we do! We got spirit, how ’bout you?

In the spirit of the football season, my mom showed up to our mini tailgate on Saturday with her nails done in Cowboys and Crossbones style:

Coordinating her nails with our team colors didn’t help with a victory but looked fabulous anyhow!

Both nail colors are Sinful brand from Walgreens, $2.99 each. Yellow hue is Pullover and Black on Black was used for the tips.

2, 4, 6, 8 – who cares who wins when your nails look great?
