  • There's no right or wrong way to achieve the candy-corn nail-art look.
  • Candy-corn manicures can suit any Halloween costume or occasion for the fall season.
  • Adding small details can bring the manicure design to the next level.

Every year, Halloween presents the perfect opportunity to explore and create with the utmost creativity. For beauty connoisseurs, this can range from spooky-inspired makeup to colorful contacts paired with scary yet chic costumes and even festive tattoos for the thrilling holiday. There are so many aspects to consider, especially when there's a ton of inspiration to choose from. Whether you want to wing it with a DIY costume, gain inspiration through pop culture references, or go all out using wigs, incorporating these small details goes a long way.

Manicures can be the greatest accessory to add to your Halloween look and take it to the next level. The latest fall nail trends feature gorgeous hues for the season and endless selections to choose from. Stiletto shapes and skeleton art can be chilling to the core, but nothing says Halloween quite like candy corn. In lieu of loading up on the sugary, tricolored candy, you can opt for wearing a fun, festive candy-corn manicure instead.

"Halloween is a great time to try any type of nail art whether you want to do a pumpkin, ghost, or witch," celebrity nail artist Sunshine tells POPSUGAR. "A candy-corn mani can also be a way to try nail art that just uses color." The options are endless when it comes to design ideas. You could be quite literal and paint a candy corn on each finger, do just an accent nail, or take a subtler stance with the orange-yellow-white combo. Sunshine suggests an ombré effect, which can be DIY-ed by using a cosmetic sponge to blot on color working from the base of your nail upward. You could also bring on some bling with a candy-corn look crafted with rhinestones or studs. If you're looking for inspiration for your candy-corn nail look, scroll on for some of our faves.
