"This is Halloween" Nail Art challenge: Gradient!

Hi everyone!

This was the part of the challenge i was most excited about. Today's nail art is Gradients. I have never done a gradient before so this was my first time. I don't think it was fantastic but i liked what i came up with.

I knew from the start what i wanted to do and i couldn't wait to get to this part of the challenge. haha. 
I got my inspiration from these little guys.... 

Candy Corn!!!

As some of you know, Australia doesn't celebrate Halloween that much. We are slowly getting into it which means we are seeing more and more spooky items and lollies across our shops. I went to Melbourne last weekend and had time made time to head to USAFoods (as we always do when we go to Melbourne) As soon as i walked in i saw a massive shelf with just Candy Corn stuff all over it. I have heard of it many times but never saw it before.

(sorry for the dodgy picture)

Unfortunately i didn't buy any as i can't eat them at the moment. Boo you braces!! =(  I really would love to know what the tasted like but i wasn't going to buy a whole bag just to try a few. Oh well, there is always next year!

Anyway, if you've made it this far, i guess i'll show you my mani now....

I used a make-up sponge lightly dipped in water to create this.
Yellow - Ulta3 Honolulu
Orange - OPI In My Back Pocket
White - Lily White
 I was happy with how my first attempt came out. I know it's not a true gradient as the colours changed in each line. I wanted the white to be a bit more opaque also. Not a bad try. I definitely want to try this some more =)

Let me know what you think.

See you soon!

  1. Very nice! I haven't tried that myself yet, but maybe I will now. :) By the way, my daughter used to eat candy corn all the time when she had her braces. She just let them kind of melt in her mouth so they wouldn't be so chewy. :0)

  2. I haven't tried candy corn, EVERYONE seems to be talking about it so it must be good! Your nail match nicely. :)

  3. Very good candy corn gradient. I think it is good and you blended the lines well. :o)


Thanks for taking the time to read and make a comment. I love reading everyone's comments! =)
