Candy Corn Grunge

 I have a simple one shot manicure to show you today. It's starting to feel like autumn here so I'm switching over to a nice fall pallette.

This actually started out as a candy corn gradient but I wasn't 100% thrilled with the result so I decided to add a grunge inspired layer of black using the saran wrap technique. The result is somewhat reminiscent of both autumn leaves and Monarch butterfly wings, don't you think?

The colors used for the gradient are Pure Ice Show Stopper, Pure Ice Drive Me Crazy and Sinful Colors Snow Me White. The black is Wet N Wild Ebony Hates Chris.

What do you think? Are you ready to say goodbye to summer and embrace the cooler weather? I know I am!


  1. Beautiul mani! It feels like real autumn in my place since the very first day of September :/

    1. We alternated between heavy rain and blazing heat all summer... I'm hoping autumn won't be as bi-polar! ):

  2. These turned out really cool :D
