Candy Coated

Difficulty: easy intermediate / 4 out of 10
You will need:
- white
- red (I used red red by wet 'n' wild shine)
- three or four other bright colors
- a very light pastel background color (I used Chiffon pink by Revlon)
- a small brush

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been away at girl scout camp for a week. I painted my nails once while I was there(I know it sounds odd that I painted my nails at girl scout camp, but I did), but it got way to chipped for me to take a picture of it when I got back home again. oh well... Anyway, for this one, start by doing a few coats of the pastel color. Now I'll explain how to do a few pieces of candy:
Candy cane: This one is really easy. You just use a small brush to draw a white line with a curl on the end, shaped like a candy cane. Then when that dries, just put a few little spots of red at even intervals, just like a candy cane.

Runts: For this one, take a few bright colors like red, yellow, green, blue, or orange, ad paint simple shapes that look like bananas, or lemons, or cherries, etc...

hard candy: This one is the easiest. just put a big circle of a color, then with a small brush, put a tiny white line, close to one edge. for a peppermint hard candy, make a white circle with red lines leading from the outside edges into the middle of the circle.

M&M: put a medium circle, then put a white M in the middle with a small brush

Gum drop: This is very much like a hard candy, only its flat on the bottom, and sort of straight on the sides with a rounded top.

Who ever gave me this idea, thanks. It worked out REALLY well!
