I absolutely can not stand peppermint. I only have the standard red & white candy canes on my tree because the kiddo loves them so much. Me, I prefer the flavored ones. So, when I was thinking of doing a candy cane mani this year....I just looked at my tree.
I can't remember what flavors they are, or what brand they are......but I picked them up at BJ's in a huge pack. I just had to do something different than the norm.
And this was the result....
First up, we have a blue candy cane. I started out with 3 coats of Sally Hansen Barracuda then drew stripes on with a striping brush and used Revlon Royal & Zoya Katherine.
For the Green candy cane, I started off with 2 coats of China Glaze Def Defying, then used my striping brush to apply Red Satin and Escaping Reality.
I really liked both of these & may actually recreate them for Christmas Day in skittle form. Just because I'm different like that. Which is your favorite?
Oh, and before I forget....here's my failed first attempt at doing the green one. I was having problems with striping tape, so I used a dotting tool and a small flat brush. Yeah, it looked absolutely horrible.
