Candy Corn Gradient

Happy Early Glittery Halloween! So for this mani, I wanted to do my own spin on a candy corn mani. What better way to do this than use my little makeup sponge to make a gradient using white, orange, and yellow! This was my first time making a gradient, so it's kinda iffy, but nonetheless, here it is!


To do this, I used 2 coats of Sinful Color Snow Me White and then Courtney Orange and Let's Meet for the gradient. After topping my white with Seche Vite, I put a stripe of orange and yellow on my makeup sponge. I bounced it up and down on paper to blend it, then pressed it to my nail. The orange was a bit thick in some spots, so I didn't like it too much. HOWEVER, I got so many compliments on my nails that I couldn't believe it! Everyone loved them, even though I thought they were not my best. So perhaps it was not the epic fail I thought it was! I give this mani a 2/10 for glitter (there was only some slight shimmer) and an 7/10 for application. I will admit. These nails made me crave candy corn!
