Candy Corn Nail Art
Press sample

I totally did not realize that today was actually Thanksgiving (it kind of crept up on us don't you think?) so I didn't think to do Turkey nails, but here we are with an updated version of candy corn nails instead! The last time I did candy corn nails was almost 10 years ago in 2013 the month of our wedding! I had done them as a tutorial post for another "supposedly bigger" blog which in retrospect was probably not the best decision as this was a time where I was"ok" with doing a ton of work for "exposure" instead of what I really should have asked for, which was MONEY. When I started receiving nail polish PR on my own, the person behind this blog (who was in PR themselves), accused me of using PR that was meant for their content for my own since they were the one who "passed my name along". I had emails to prove that these companies never had my name on their press lists until I emailed them myself. In the end, the relationship died out and I never heard from this person again nor did I ever see their name pop up in the PR world, so know your worth people!

I chopped down my nails last night while watching Tenet as they were getting too long for me and kept getting in the way, but the main reason I wanted to take another stab at candy corn nails is because I had the nail length AND the coffin ballerina shape which looks a lot like this unhealthy, zero nutrition candy. The other thing I tried was applying a matte top coat to mimic the true finish of candy corn and I think it turned out nicely!
