Pumpkin Nail Art

Hi all,

Halloween is just around the corner and I have been getting into the spirit of it (there was pumpkin shaped sweets at work today) I was inspired to try to create a cute pumpkin nail design which is really not a very original idea but I thought it would be fun. I just did one on my thumb, but if you did one on each finger you could give them all different characters. 

Here we go:

Base coat
Orange Nail varnish
Green Nail varnish
Black nail polish/art nail pen
(optional) White art nail pen

Step 1 - Apply a base coat to protect the nail from the orange (you don't want yellow nails!)
Paint the nail with the orange (I needed two coats)

Step 2 - Apply a blob of green nail varnish and using a tooth pick spread it to create a leafy top.

Step 3 - Here you give your pumpkin personality! Draw on a face with the black nail art pen (or black nail varnish and tooth pick) You can also do lines to give the contours of the pumpkin.

Hope you enjoyed, and will maybe give it a go for halloween!
