Let's Get Corny This Halloween... On Our Nails!

I've been unsure what nail art idea I wanted to do for Halloween this year. Then my friend Laura of Blush and Beakers kindly picked up these Sally Hansen Salon Effects candy corn nail stickers that I've been eyeing up. They're called "How Corny" lol!



Tips for using Sally Hansen Salon Effects:
  • Make sure your nails are completely bare (no polish whatsoever!).
  • Make sure nails are completely dry.
  • Use a buffer (they provide one) to smooth the nail's surface.
  • Push back cuticles (they provide a small cuticle stick)
  • Start with the pinky and work towards the thumb nail. I've found you use your thumb nail a lot so it helps avoid chipping.
  • Stretch the sticker to fit your nail properly. You are not conformed to the sizes they give, feel free to stretch it thinner.
Excuse the chewed on hang nails... so dry!

I've gotten pretty good at them that I ended up not usually all the stickers in just ONE of the packets they provided. For step-by-step instructions on how to apply the nail stickers - read this post.

Here are some past Halloween nail looks I've done:

L-R: Blood spatter nails // Skull nail decals // Lace nails // Glow in the dark polish from China Glaze

What are you wearing on your nails for Halloween?

  1. I like that you do your nails for Halloween. I love Sally Hansen nail strips, but I hate candy corn, so I guess I'll have to find a different style.

  5. I love all your halloween nails. The Candy corn looks great on them. We don't have it here, but my friend has just moved to LA and says that candy corn is the greatest!

  6. The candy corn nails are so cute! I tried the Prabal Gurung bloody nails this weekend but completely failed since I did it last minute before going out -- probably not the best idea lol.

    1. How come? I don't use them very often (although I keep buying them) because I like to switch my nail polish up a lot
