Halloween Challenge #2: Pumpkin Faces

It's 10:27pm here, and I should really be in bed, but instead I've just finished off my second challenge manicure for the Halloween Nail Art Challenge.  Too much good TV on a Wednesday night, that's the problem...

So, here's a reminder of the challenge prompts - today we're on pumpkin faces:


I actually attempted some pumpkin nails a couple of years back, which you can see here if you fancy a laugh.

To be honest, I didn't think I could do a much better job this time, so I decided to go down a slightly different route and attempt a pumpkin that spanned all my nails.  He's got a bit of a wonky nose...

I can only apologise for the atrocious clean up - I just could not get that stuff off my skin!

I used OPI A Roll in the Hague, Max Factor Bright Orange and Viva La Colour Creme Brulee for the pumpkin and then my Barry M Nail Art Pen in Black for all the detail.

Now I just need to carve my actual pumpkin...

Don't forget to check out all the other pumpkin manicures!

    1. I drew it all out first in what I thought was a fairly natural and achievable hand position, but then every time I put them back together the check how he was coming along, I could NOT get the same positions without using my other hand to position each finger lol. Thank you though :)
