Candy Corn Nails, Polish Haul, & Nail Mail

Today is the first day of October. Which means the beginning of Halloween nails! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Its so much fun! For my first nail design of the holiday month, I did candy corn. Well, a candy corn accent nail and sparkling orange on the rest.

Not the best little candy corn ever, but its the first one I've ever painted on my nails. On my ring finger I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Black on Black, Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow, and Wet n Wild Creepy Pumpkin. On the rest I layered Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Dahlia Orange, and Wet n Wild Creepy Pumpkin. Both oranges are sheer, so the white base meant less layers. I love all of these colors and polishes. They all apply beautifully.

I think candy corn is a great way to start off October and Halloween! :)

As the post title implies, I also bought some new polishes and got some nail mail. Sorry in advance for the picture overload.

From left to right: ICING Stormy/Serene, ICING Glitterati, Zoya Meadow, Essie Red Nouveau, and Orly Sec N Dry along with some Kiss nail glue. 

I got Stormy/Serene from ICING as part of a BOGO 50% off sale. It changes color depending on your mood. Though I've heard its dependent on temperature, like mood rings are.

An up close shot of Glitterati. Its so pretty in the bottle. Large hexagon magenta glitter with small round holo glitter.

Both the Zoya and Essie polishes are from a sale on Pretty & Polished. She has some gorgeous China Glaze holo polishes up for sale now, one of which I just ordered. These are my first of both brands. I'm very excited to try them out.

I also got a set of Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips Spun for You. The box is MIA so I dug up a stock photo in case you have not seen this particular design.

I have heard great things about these nail strips. I'm very excited about the Halloween ones. If these work well for me, I might go back and get Ghoulie Girl or Numbskull.


  1. This looks good! I did something similar with the candy corn on my ring finger but left the excess nail bare, instead of painting it black.

  2. That is so cute! I really like the Creepy Pumpkin polish.

  3. @Peace, Love and Polish Thank you! Bare would be cute too. I just love the way the colors pop off the black.

    @Nail Reflections Thanks! Creepy Pumpkin is such a pretty polish. Totally worth owning.
