Marbled Candy Corn

Hey everyone!  I've seen so many adorable candy corn manis lately, and I've been dying to create my own variation!  So I went with water marbling!!

I started off with two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, which we all know is my hands down favorite white, because of it's grey undertone.

For the marbling, I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow 360, and Nubar Orange Cream.  

To avoid the typical swoops and loops in water marbling, I dragged my orange stick from the center of the polish drops down toward the edge of the cup, until I was left with a ring of little hill shaped patterns.  This way, I was able to keep the striped look of candy corn.

For a little sparkle, I added one coat of Out the Door Northern Lights Hologram top coat.  It's very subtle and pretty!!  I added one coat of SV over that, because I had a tiny bit of texture from the Northern Lights.

I hope you all enjoy my take on candy corn as much as I do!!!

Happy Painting!
