N.A.I.L Linkup: October - Pumpkins

Hello lovelies!

I actually have Halloween nail art for you guys this year! Hopefully you guys aren't sick of Halloween designs yet because I have a bunch to share with you all this week.

So, let's get to the nails!

Here's what I used:

The inspiration for today's nail art comes from such a random place haha. I came across this tutorial for children on how to make a pumpkin stamp out of a toilet paper roll, and I liked how the stamp look so it ended up on my nails!

These nails started with two coats of Black Out followed by a later of Fairy Dust. The using my detail brush and orange paint I added on the pumpkins. I found it easier to paint the outside circle than add the inner lines. This was followed by a little leaf (yeah, you can't see them but they are there) and the stem. Everything was sealed in with a layer of HK Girl.

The layer of Fairy Dust wasn't my original plan for these nails but it just happened to be sitting on my desk and it's been a while since I've used so that's how we ended up with sparkly pumpkins today haha. I finally put my second melmer together two night ago (I've had it for close to a month) and I reorganized all my polishes, so now I can actually find what I'm looking for. Sorting through everything reminded me of polishes that haven't seen daylight in a while either so I'm hoping to break out more of those pretties soon too!

Thanks for reading guys!

  11. Matte-ing (yep) this is EVERYTHING! It almost looks like the pumpkins were falling through a twinkling sky and then froze mid-fall. I LOVE IT! Super cute and creative.
