Halloween Nail Art: Candy Corn Characters

Press Sample

I can't believe we are already on Day 8! At this point, I have done 11 Halloween manicures so I am confident I can get to 13. I always wished I could do 31 Days but that is impossible unless I started in August and I am not sure I could keep the momentum of posting that much. So we stick to 13. These were inspired by a cookie designer. When I tried to find who made it, it says Sara Bakes. Yea...you try finding that one. Lol. So I cannot find the direct link but nonetheless, this is what I saw on Pinterest.

I liked the idea of candy corn shapes but we characters in it. I also really loved the Frankenstein candy corn and that was initially going to be all my nails. Then I mixed it up with a cat and a vampire. I thought a purple base would make them all pop.

Here are all the colors I used for this look!

  • Base: Girly Bits Your Palace or Mine?
  • Yellow: Jessica Cosmetics 
  • Orange: Jessica Cosmetics 
  • Black: Stella Chroma New Moon
  • White: 
  • Base of candy corn: Duri Cosmetics Bunny Slope
  • Darker Green: Barry M Spring Green
  • Neon Green: Stella Chroma All Charged Up 
  • Pink: Zoya Gwen 
  • Red: Zoya Margaret


This was not my cleanest manicure ever. I wish I was neater and everything smudged and then I dinged my nail and a huge dent was missing (can you find it...lol). It was a hot mess. I still wore these for 4 days but I was happy to take them off. Of course, so many people had comments on them so we are always our own worst critic.


So let's settle this: is candy corn gross or delicious? I'm good with 2 pieces and then not having them for 2 years. LOL.


  1. I love the purple. That is such a fun manicure. I don't have a sweet tooth at all but a family member buys me candy corn at Halloween cause that's the only candy they have seen me eat. I have 2 pieces then give the rest away and that's it till next Halloween . Even my birthday cake is Angel cake mounted with berries and whip cream. Thanks for sharing. 💜💜

    1. I looovve this purple and it is one of my favorites. I have a major sweet tooth but not for candy corn. Fruit desserts are my favorite though!
