Do you find it challenging coming up with original Halloween nail designs every year? Me too, I feel like everything has been already done. Ghosts, skulls, vampires, candy corn and tombstones… but true nail art warriors never give up! So after staring at my nails for half an hour (they are very short & strangely shaped at the moment) I’m feeling like Pumpkin Nail Art might be a good start but it needs to be a little bit more detailed, arty and at the same time, pleasant to look at.
And so the Vicious Pumpkins were born! As you may have already guessed, this nail design is entirely hand-painted. If you have a good detailing nail art brush, it should be pretty easy to re-create the look. Give it a go and you’ll see it’s not as complicated as it may seem.
To get the Vicious Pumpkin Nail Art look, paint all nails in black glitter or plain black nail polish, then using white nail polish and a detailing nail art brush, add pumpkin eyes, nose and mouth on each nail. Next, using yellow, light orange and dark orange polishes, paint pumpkin faces over the white details. Wait a few minutes and seal your art work with a layer or two of a good top coat.
Are these Pumpkins vicious enough to make you want to try them this Halloween?
