STEP 1: “File your nails to your desired shape, smoothing out any uneven edges and trimming cuticles as needed.”
STEP 2: “Apply a clear base coat to all your nails. This provides a nice even surface for your polish.”
STEP 3: “It’s pumpkin time! Grab your orange polish and paint a shape that looks like the top half of a heart on the tip of every other nail. Don’t have a pumpkin-orange polish? Christina suggests mixing a couple of your existing colors together to create the perfect hue.”
STEP 4: “Warning: this step will get a bit messy! While your pumpkins are partially dry, dip your fingertips in a small dish filled with gold luster. For an Eco-friendly option, check your local craft shop for food grade cake decorating luster—it’s much more environmentally friendly than glittery polishes, which are often made with micro plastics that are harmful for our waterways. Allow the polish to completely dry with the luster on top, then wash your hands to get rid of excess luster on the fingers and nails.”
STEP 5: “Use one nail art brush and a green polish to paint a pumpkin top, then use your second nail art brush and your beige or pale yellow color to paint a few thin vertical contour lines down the sides of your pumpkin.”
STEP 6: “On alternating fingers, use your nail art brush and your black polish to paint thin horizontal lines over the length of your nail. If you’re not very steady-handed, make your lines thicker—it will be harder to tell if they’re a little crooked!”
STEP 7: “Allow all polish to dry thoroughly then apply a top coat. Reapply your top coat every other day to keep your polish in great shape for as long as possible.”
