Pumpkin Everything- Pumpkin Nail Design

Hello everyone! For today I don't know if I am a little bit late for this design, but I thought it would still be fun to create a pumpkin nail design, it is still technically fall even though it feels like winter outside.

Here are the nail polishes and nail tools that you will need to create this pumpkin design:


Base and top coat- CND Stickey Base Coat and Revlon Extra Life No Chip top coat. (The same top an base that I always use.)

Polishes- OPI Lisbon- Now Museum Now You Don't and Zoya- Urban Grunge- Troy. 

Acrylic paint- black, red, and yellow (red and yellow to make orange) 

Nail art brushes- thin linear brush and a thin stripper brush.

Small glass jar with acetone in it to clean off your nail art brushes.  

It's pumpkin everything season, or is it, or maybe I missed out?

As always start off on a nice clean nails with no polish on them and apply a thin layer of base coat to protect your nails. 

Let that dry.

Once your base coat has dried, polish your thumb, middle and ring finger nails a gunmetal grey (I used Zoya- Troy), then polish your index and pinky nail a red orange color (I used 
OPI- Now Museum Now You Don't.) 

For this design I decided to go with more darker colors for the background/ base colors, well the gunmetal polish color, and a fall red orange, that was weirdly in the OPI summer collection even though I feel like that color was a fall color. 

Let that dry.

Now on to the nail art, we will be making pumpkins on the thumb, index and ring finger nails (all of the nails that we polish with the gunmetal colored polish.) 

For the pumpkins on the middle and index nail we will just be making one pumpkin. Take your linear brush dipped into orange paint and make a large oval shape for the pumpkins (I made one near the tip of the nail and the other more in the middle of the nail), then fill in the oval shape with orange, I ended up having to go over the pumpkin shape three times to be opaque. 

Once that is dry take your stripping brush with black paint on it and careful outline the oval shape of the pumpkin and then make four large curved lines for the ring finger nail pumpkin. For the middle finger nail pumpkin make three small curved lines at the top and then four small curved lines at the bottom.

Now on the the vines and steam, take your thin linear brush with green paint on it and make a steam on the top of the pumpkin. Then with that same stripper brush with green paint on it, make some curved going from the top of the pumpkin and some on the pumpkin.

For the thumb nail we will be make two pumpkins, you can just repeat the same steps as the other nails just over lap the two pumpkins, the pumpkin in the back will be kind of hiding behind the other pumpkin.

Once your pumpkin nails are just right apply a top coat to seal in your design and help it to last.  

What is your favorite pumpkin item or do you not get why fall is always pumpkin everything? My favorite pumpkin item is pumpkin pie, loaded with whip cream.  

Hope you enjoined this pumpkin nail design! 

See you next time for more nail fun!
