Jack O’ Lanterns

It’s almost halloween! And I’m cutting it close here…I just took these off last night so the art (and subsequently this post) is being composed at midnight. Oops!


I saw these awesome jack o’lanterns by nailsbyjacky, and I just had to try them myself! That being said, I changed the eye designs! I just like her smiles :-). And yes, the design is intentionally face-up (ha!) starting at my nail beds…I thought it made more sense to have the bottom of the smiles be curved. Its been a while since I’ve gotten to paint anything right-side-up!


I started with an orange base, and sponged on (using the saran wrap method) a lighter orange and a neon orange for some texture. After adding top coat (just in case I messed up the next step) I then painted on the faces. I cleaned up with acetone (and added back some orange where I messed up) and voila!


~ Orange: Zoya – Thandie
~ Light orange: Maybelline – Bleached in Peach
~ Bright orange: Nubar – Hot Orange
~ Teal: Salon Perfect – Escape to Neverland
~ Green: Zoya – Shawn
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black


My truly creepy mani (aka awesome and totally fit for halloween) is up tomorrow! Stay tuned 🙂 and then I have some fall-appropriate manicures for next week!
