Candy Inspired Nails

Well lovelies, this has been a really fun week for me, and I hope you have enjoyed it as well! As my first ever Creative Nail Week here on the blog, I posted tutorials on water marbling, I showed you how to transfer news print to your nails, and I even snuck in a secret video tutorial! Today, we conclude our Creative Nail Week with a focus on color. 

L to R: Zoya Midori, OPI Flit a Bit OPI The It Color, Essie Geranium, and OPI Plum Full of Cheer

Who doesn't have fond memories of these brightly colored candies? Sure the sugar spike, hydrogenated fats, and empty calories may keep some at bay, but their color palettes provide endless possibilities. What better way to play with sugar, than to wear it on your nails? The inspiration is endless! 

Are you inspired? Nails can be such a fun way to express your creativity and individuality or keep up with current color fashions without making too much of a commitment. Plus, if you are feeling a little timid about wearing these manicures to the office, you can always have a pedicure done instead!

Oh, did you know that I create "secret" posts (videos)?  It's true! To never miss a post, or to know when a "secret" one goes live, become a fan on Facebook and always know when one posts!

PS a warm and happy welcome to Amber's Mouthwash newest followers, Meri and Rachel of the stunning blog Da Paura! Seriously Rachel, I LOVE your beautiful photos/style and Italy photos! So happy to have both you girls here.


  1. Love the pictures! You've got me lusting for my candy now!!! It is so hard to choose on shade so I am loving this trend of putting all the colors together. At least makes 'one' thing in life easier :)
