This weeks Manicure Monday idea is inspired from your favorite Halloween candy, candy corn! Try this cute manicure before you go trick or treating tonight!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
-Orange & yellow nail polish
-Clear coat nail polish
-Standard paper hole reinforcement stickers (you can get them at any office supply store)
STEP 1: Paint your nails with the yellow nail polish and let dry.
STEP 1: Paint your entire nail with the yellow base color that will be your cuticle area. Let the yellow dry completely before you continue on to Step 2. We waited about 15 minutes just to be safe.
STEP 2: After you are absolutely sure that the first layer is dry, apply the reinforcement labels/stickers to your nails right at the top of your nail (try cutting the labels in half to get more uses out of them). The majority of the label should be on your skin and only a small amount on your nail depending on how big or small you want your half-moon shape to be. Once you have the label in place, press on it until it is completely stuck in all corners so it contours to your nail.
STEP 3: Paint your entire nail with the orange nail polish. Ensure a clean contrasting line of color by painting on top of the sticker and around the edges. Let your second layer color dry completely before you continue on to Step 4. We waited about 15 minutes just to be safe.
STEP 4: Now carefully remove the reinforcement labels. These stickers should peel off without taking of any of the color underneath and leave you with a clean edge.
STEP 5: Protect with a glossy, clean topcoat to preserve you’re new candy corn Halloween look!
