Halloween makes us think of many things: haunted houses, pumpkins, ghosts and costumes. We also cannot forget about candy. Halloween candy just might be the best thing about the holiday. You probably eat twice your body weight in candy during October, but there are other ways you can celebrate your love of Halloween candy. A candy-themed Halloween manicure is a great solution. If you’ve already tried your spiderweb and spooky monster Halloween nail art ideas, some candy nail art is just the thing to try. Not only does it look cute, you don’t have to worry about sugar overload with it.
