Candy - 8 Spooky Nights Challenge Day 3

Candy! Oh, I knew I was going to have fun with this theme. I mean, think of all of the candy options there are - M&Ms and Skittles manis being the most obvious to me. And candy corn since it is a Halloween challenge and all. I also saw some pretty nice candy cane and starlight  mint manis when I was scrolling through candy mani photos, but I figure I will wait for Chrismukkah before I try those. I wanted to try something different, and I actually thought about doing a mani like this a few weeks ago, when someone told me about having to do a candy theme for another challenge. Needless to say I was happy when I saw this was the theme for today.

So, for my candy manicure, I bring you... Kisses!
I used a black WnW for the base, and then Revlon Snow Bunny and SC Queen of Beauty for the "foil," and SH White On for the tags. I had some trouble shaping the kisses and the tags (and realized how much I prefer doing nail art like that with acrylic paint), and me being the picky chick I am, went nuts trying to clean up the design. But I am pretty happy with this overall, and I think it may be something a little different. And now I want chocolate! >.<
