Happy October 1st! Bring on the candy! 😉 And speaking of candy…I’ve been wanting to create a candy corn mani this month but unsure which polishes I’d use. So there I sat this morning in front of my polish shelves (yes shelves, don’t judge) and pondered. My eyes fell upon a row of Zoya Pixie Dusts and the light came on. It’s almost like those bottles of Pixie goodness glowed to get my attention. Okay, that might be a little dramatic, but I was pretty excited with my vision 😉
I settled on using Solange for the yellow, Dhara for the orange and a coat of Cosmo over white for the candy corn nails.
A little history about candy corn you may not know! Candy corn, the little yellow, orange, and white treat has it’s root dating back more than a century. It is said that a candy maker, George Renninger, of the renowned Wunderlee Candy Company in Philadelphia, invented the tri-color confection in the 1880s. The Goelitz Confectionery Company brought the candy to the everyone at the turn of the 20th century. The Jelly Belly Candy Co., now owns that company and has the longest history in the industry of making candy corn, and it still uses the original recipe. There are of course other companies who make candy cone, but with varied ingredients.
