Colorful Candy Canes *Pic spam*

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'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.


  1. These are super cute, very nice job!

  2. What a great idea - I'm not huge on peppermint and I do love a modern rendition on a classic idea.

  3. Great manicure! I used to love those different flavoured candy canes!

  4. wow these are magnificent! I love the green candy cane :)
