Halloween Mani #6: Candy Corn

To those who have posted other candy corn mani's...I promise I am not copying you!  LOL
I had this idea awhile back, and I guess great minds think alike cause it seems we all had this idea! 
So yeah, didn't want anyone's feelings to get hurt, thinking i was stealing.  :)

Today's many is quite easy when you break it down.

Step 1 - Paint a white base.  I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Whirlwind White.

Step 2 - Place a hole reinforcement sticker on the nail so that you leave a small gap at the cuticle edge, like your doing a ruffian!  
 
Step 3 - Use a bright yellow polish to paint that gap you just created and immediately remove the sticker.
I used Nubar "Hot Yellow"

Step 4 - Using a bright orange polish (I used Nubar - Hot Orange), paint a stripe across the nail, leaving a small white strip at the top like so:

Then just paint a second curved stripe so that it butts up against the yellow, and instant candy corn!
See my pinkie?  That's what happens when you go over and over the same spot.  It starts spearing the base.  Dont be like me...do 2 stripes then fix any errors with a second coat!
Also, leave more white than I did!  LOL

The orange looks more neon in the pic then it did in reality!

There ya go!  My version of Candy Corn Nails!!!

Hope you have a great day!

Actually I like that you didnt leave alot of white at the tip. Most of the candy corn we get around Washington (i moved to michigan in June) has tiny little white tips with a huge orange center and a blob of yellow on the end. So your nails to me truely to represent the candy corn I have known all my life.
