{red} candied apples

There is something equally creepy and beautiful about a classic red candy apple; it's a little Snow White meets the Evil Queen. Here is our recipe to make the sweet and scary apples!

What you'll need:

6 apples {red delicious}
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. light corn syrup
3/4 c. water
parchment paper
butter or cooking spray
wooden sticks {small twigs}

How to make:
In a deep-bottomed sauce pan, mix the corn syrup, sugar and water. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat, then reduce to medium high heat. Insert a candy thermometer and let it boil until it reaches 300-310 degrees. While it's boiling, line a baking sheet with greased parchment paper (this makes the apples easier to remove). Also, insert the wooden sticks into each apple about halfway through. When the mixture reaches temperature, remove from heat immediately. Dip and twirl apples in the mixture covering completely. Work quickly before the sugar starts to harden. Transfer to baking sheet to cool. 
Happy Halloween!

It's been awhile since our last nail art post, and we thought we'd bring it back with a Halloween inspired mani. This is probably one of our easiest to date.

What you'll need

base color
web color
line tool or nail art pen

How to

After your base coat is completely dry, use your line tool to draw three lines angled outward from the bottom corner of your nail. Then in a wave-like motion, start to cross the lines horizontally two or three times across the lines and you are done!
