Halloween nail art - cornstalks and pumpkins

Friday, October 25, 2013

Halloween is just around the corner and I love all holiday nail art. 

I wanted something dark, yet not spooky or creepy. So I decided to go with a base color of OPI DS Mystery. It is a deep purple that is almost black. It has micro gold sparkle and it turned out to be a great choice as the canvas for the nail art.

I wanted cornstalks and a pumpkin. So I grabbed my acrylic paints and MASH nail art brushes. I love these brushes. I have had them for quite a while and they get used a lot - but they are holding up quite well.

I used tan, yellow and orange paint for the cornstalks. A few swipes of the brush with the different color paint added detail and dimension. Then using orange paint I added the pumpkins. A green stem on the pumpkin and all was complete - well almost.

I didn't like how the cornstalks looked bare at the bottom. So I used green paint and added a few vines.
