Directions:


Step 1

Begin with a light blue base coat. The orange and green really pop against it.

Step 2

Using the large end of the dotting tool, make 2 dots next to each other to form a pumpkin shape. Do this in random spots on all the nails. It looks best if each pumpkin is slightly irregular and unique in shape.

Step 3

Using the small end of the dotting tool (or a small brush), make tiny strokes of the darker orange to show the ridges on the pumpkins.

Step 4

Using the small end of the dotting tool (or a small brush) again, paint on the green swirly vines. Look at where you placed your pumpkins and decide where you'd like the vine to go before you paint so the design looks balanced. Decide if you want it to curl on its way to attach to another pumpkin, or if you'd like it to go off the edge of the nail.

Wait for the design to dry and apply topcoat. Prepare for many compliments!
