Falling for Nail Art - Great Pumpkin



Hi, Fireflies!

For my Great Pumpkin nail art, I was inspired by Robin Moses!  I never thought I would do pumpkins like these before.

I started with a holo - Enchanted Polish Congratulations.  I love orange-y/gold/bronz-y type shifters.

For the pumpkins, I made the shapes with Too-Cute-icle Hot Shades.  Bright orange pumpkins!

Maybe I should have gone darker with the outlines and used Hot Shades for the main color.  I thought that Above the Curve Let's Tan-go would be pumpkin-y.  I used a small nail brush to paint in the curves of the pumpkin.

I used Zoya Hunter for the stems of the pumpkins, and a mix of Hunter and Sinful Colors Pistache for the vines.


Maybe there wasn't enough contrast between EP Congratulations and the pumpkins, but I love that orange glow and that holo.  Such a gorgeous polish!

I love that orange glow

Are you ready for the Great Pumpkin to rise out of the pumpkin patch on Halloween?
