Candy Corn Inspired Nail Designs – Halloween Nailfest 2014

Candy Corn Inspired Nail Designs Feature

Halloween is for SURE my favorite time of year – because black cat’s and October go together perfectly of course! This year I have done a TON of graphic design projects and I was inspired to do some nail related graphics too. Like I mentioned yesterday in my first Halloween nail art design of the year, I want to take full advantage this spooky season and try out all the different ideas I’ve seen and loved over the last couple years. But I also wanted to try come up with some of my own ideas and see what twist’s I could come up with on the designs I’ve seen.

If you know me personally, you will know that I have a HUGE sweet tooth. It’s serious – I can’t help myself and have to buy candy in small quantities – Fez from “That ’70′s Show” has nothing on me! So for my first Halloween theme for “Halloween Nailfest 2014” I was inspired by delicious and colorful CANDY CORN!

Once I grabbed my yellow, orange, and black colored pencils and nail design template I really got going. I was in a flow and came up with over 110 different candy corn inspired ideas! After that I designed them all in Illustrator and refined the designs, came up with a few new ones, and rejected about 30 designs that I thought were too similar or just bad. Many of the designs are color or theme variations on others but I find it interesting how if you vary color placement, even with just a limited color palette, you can totally change the effect!

In the end I have 98 total designs that I am happy with that I hope you will also like! I can’t wait to try a few of them out – I wish I had time to try them all of course. Tomorrow I will have a few full set manicure designs based off a few of these. Which design would you try? Let me know if you are inspired by of these designs, I would love to see!
