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!

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!
