I didn’t try my hand at pumpkins or Jack-o-lanterns last year and had a comment asking me to do so, sooo…

I gave it a go.  I think they’re super cute!

These little guys were pretty time consuming.  Easy, but took a while.  My blue base is Color Club Gossip Column.  Gorgeous blue!  Love it!  This is the first time I’ve polished my nail with it.  I’m sure it will stain something fierce just like any saturated blue.  My oranges are Julep Parker and Jordana Orangesicle.  The black is China Glaze Liquid Leather.  The yellow glow is Sinful Colors Pull Over and my brown stems are Sinful Colors Nirvana.  My stars are Julep Brigitte with a little thinned NYX Ink swept over the top to dim them up a bit.

We have my family over every year for a Pumpkin Carving Party.  This year will be our eleventh annual.  Do you still carve pumpkins?  Do you do it freehand or use a crazy, difficult pattern like we do?

You can find my jack-o-lantern tutorial here.

    Those are amazing! I especially love the ring finger. It actually looks three dimensional. I love the colors too! I’m way impressed. lol

    I want to try and duplicate this so bad! But I really need step by step pictures so I can see the progression. Have you thought about doing that?

      Thanks! Picture tutorials like that are a lot of work. I’ll see what I can do, but I can’t make any promises.

    Super Cute is just about right! Love the “happy” Halloween Nails for a change! (And I admire your drawing skills!)

    I’m trying so hard to think of a way to describe the awesomeness, but I’m just sitting here with my mouth open.

    I. Love. These.
