Sugar Spun Candy Corn Nails

Hi everyone!

Today I have for you my first Halloween themed manicure. Of course I had to do some candy corn nail art, because they are the epitome of Halloween. I admit I have never tried candy corn, because it is not available here, but they look really cute. I combined the candy corn theme with the sugar spun method, which I have been meaning to try for quite a while.

I started out with one coat of Essie - Licorice as my base. For some sparkles I applied one layer of INM - Northern Lights gold on top of the black. For the sugar spun I used the following polishes: 
OPI - Need Sunglasses
Maybelline - Super Stay Couture Orange
To achieve the textured sugar spun effect I basically followed this tutorial by the Nailasaurus. I did not apply any top coat to keep the textured effect.

As you might have realized I messed up the colors on my nails. Candy corn usually is white at the top, orange in the middle and yellow at the base. Whooops. But I hope you get the idea! 
I do not mind the little misfortune with the colors, but still I am not overly happy with the result. Even though I waited what felt like forever for the nail polishes to become stringy, I got some big globs of polish on my nails. The effect simply is not what I had hoped for, but maybe I just need to find the right polishes for the sugar spun technique or practice some more.

What do you think of this manicure?

  1. Thank you so much Simona! There definitely is room to improve though. I wish it had turned out a bit more "stringy".

  2. I love this mani! You did so great with the sugar spun technique. I've attempted it a couple times but failed miserably.
