Candy Corn Nails - revisited

The last time I wore a candy corn manicure was in 2010 and I can't tell you how many random strangers commented on my nails. So, this year, I decided to re-create it. Now, it's an easy manicure to create, you just need a little patience and some scotch tape....yeah. I have no patience. So, this is my 2nd attempt. The 1st time I didn't let the orange base dry enough and the tape pulled the color up with it. I tell you, me and nail art just don't get along.

For this mani, I used a base of Sally Hansen Insti Dry in Orange Impuse (see yesterday's mani). I waited about and hour and then added scotch tape down the middle and used Sally Hansen Insti Dry Quick Canary (could have used a 2nd coat) and Wet n Wild White.

Even though the yellow is a bit sheer, I really love the results, what a fun mani!

Thanks for looking!!

Sally Hansen Insta Dry: Orange Impulse

As much as I love this time of year, it does get a bit dreary getting used to the short amount of daylight. So even though it might be a little late in the year for wearing bright colors on the nail, I still loved wearing Orange Impulse. Perfect remedy. Orange Impulse is a nice and bright orange color, I suppose it'd be considered a neon, but I don't know if I'd call it that. Check out the pick:

Don't you hate it when you finish a nice and neat looking manicure and you end up smudging one finger? So annoying, but I was too lazy to fix it. ha ha.
