{How To} Sponge Halloween Candy Corn Nail DIY

I’ve been crazy for nail art lately! If you follow me on Instagram, you already know this. 🙂

It’s been so much fun experimenting with Halloween nail looks and sharing some of the best (aka easiest) looks with you (here and here). This nail DIY is no different. Not only is the candy corn nail look super cute, it’s super easy! Hope you enjoy~

How to create Halloween Candy Corn Nails with a sponge:

  1. Paint nails white. This will help the other colors show up better.
  2. Paint the 3 stripes of the candy corn onto the makeup sponge. *TIP: minimize the polish that gets around your skin/cuticles by cutting the sponge to fit your nails.
  3. Stamp onto each nail. Use a tapping motion. Repeat step 2 for each nail using the same sponge.
  4. Clean up the sides with nail polish remover.

That’s it! 4 easy steps. Good luck!

    I saw someone with this done on their nails, and I thought that it was great-as I am going to be a candy corn ( I made this myself and even made a purse).

    I like this! The colors look amazing together. And that candy looks yummy, I wish Halloween was celebrated in the Netherlands.

      Thanks. Just because you don’t celebrate Halloween doesn’t mean you can’t try this nail diy! Maybe switch out some colors?! 🙂
