Trick or Treat! Candy Corn Nail Designs

Halloween nail designs Candy Corn
Here are my Candy Corn nail designs. I think they are super fun and cute! I will give you a step by step guide to painting them along with some Amazon Affiliate links to help you find the right supplies.

They look great on every nail but my clients usually get just one or two as accent nails. They look super with a manicure done with bright orange nail polish. Zoya Paz is perfect!

The Candy Corn nail design is a good nail design choice because it can be worn anytime for fall not just for Halloween.

 How to Paint Candy Corn Nail Art


Shape the Nail
I start the design by shaping the nails in an almond shape to resemble the Candy Corn shape. You can also apply some artificial nails so you don't have to change your nail shape.

Apply the Base
Applied a base coat and let it dry. 

Paint the Design
Paint the design using white, orange and yellow acrylic craft paint and a small paint brush.

I like using acrylic paint for nail designs for many reasons. It's water based so it's easy to mix colors and thin the paint to the right consistency, it doesn't clump up like nail polish can when painting a design and it's opaque. Acrylic paint applies easily over nail polish and it dries nice and fast.
 

Start with the orange. It is the largest section in the middle of the nail.

Next, add the yellow to the cuticle end of the nail.

Then, add the small white top of the candy corn to the tip of the nail. 

Don't worry about your lines being perfect. The lines on the actual candy corn aren't perfect.

Seal the Design
The acrylic paint does need to be sealed with nail polish so it doesn't scratch off. All the my designed nails were sealed with Sech Vite, my favorite top coat.

There you have it. Some easy, hand painted candy corn nail designs. Have fun with them!
