NAILS | Bring on the Candy Corn! #CBBxManiMonday

I got into the candy corn game pretty late in life. It's not exactly an Asian candy you grow up with and I honestly only saw it on TV or in the bulk candy section, but didn't understand why people liked it. Then I got a little pack of it and LOVED it when I trick-or-treated for the first time in my FIRST YEAR OF UNIVERSITY. Yes, I know, it's crazy that even with growing up and going to school in Canada, I never got to go trick-or-treating with my friends! The reason? I grew up in a Christian household where I couldn't dress up or have anything to do with Halloween. Fast forward to when my younger sister was old enough and SHE got to dress up and go out trick-or-treating so I was pretty choked about that! She always had the best costumes too because my mom was a seamstress and could sew whichever Disney character struck her fancy. Anyway, I finally got to go collect candy when I was 18 with a friend and when we ended up unknowingly hitting up her Econ prof's house I was like "Listen, we need to stop. We're too old!"

As a 37 year old woman, I KNOW that candy corn is bad for me and is just pure sugar which is why I don't like buying it in those ginormous packs that they often sell in store at this time of year. I really only want a little 10 piece pack to satiate me, but those are hard to find so I will have to be satisfied this year with candy corn on my nails.

These didn't quite turn out as I had hoped as I used nail vinyls from Whatsup Nails to create the candy corn and tried to apply the candy corn shades with a little dotting tool, but the edges were never crisp. I ended up going in with a little nail art brush to define some of the edges, but you can see that some areas could not be fully salvaged. They still look cute from a distance so I will take it as an overall manicure win!
