DIY Halloween Nails!

Toodles my lovely people. Today we have a ghoulishly ghoulish tutorial for some pumpkin nails! Just a disclaimer, I am in NO WAY any good at doing nails, as you can tell. But I tried, and that’s all that matters! I will list the names of the nail polishes at the end…let’s go!

YOU WILL NEED: a dotting tool (or a hair grip/toothpick), base and top coat, white, orange, green and glitter (optional) nail polishes.

Paint your nails with a base coat and let them dry for 2 minutes. Then apply a thin coat of white and let dry for a few minutes. Pai a second coat and let dry for a few more minutes. Put some of the orange nail polish on a piece of paper or old magazine. Take you dotting tool and put two large orange dots next to each other on your nail. Then, using the same tool, gently dab more dots going down towards the end of your nail until you create a pumpkin-y shape. Let these ‘pumpkins’ dry. Put some of the green polish on the paper. Gently drag the dotting tool from the top of the pumpkin to halfway down the nail to create stalk. Let dry. Now you can either paint a glittery coat over the top, but I decided not to. Apply top coat. To create the look on my pointing finger, I just dragged the orange and green polish around my nail randomly! I also changed up the design on my middle finger with just streaks, though it looked pretty good.
