Did you suppose I used to be accomplished enjoying round with vivid backgrounds and black and white topics simply because I painted Scarecrow vs Crow? You’ll be improper, though presumably right this moment’s look has satiated me for some time. We’re beginning with a vivid fuchsia/magenta nail polish with orange glitter and including black and white pumpkins with letters on high. It’s a bit of bit reverse stamping (from filling within the letters) and a bit of layered stamping (including the stems).
The unique design that I sketched out final October had the pumpkins spelling “spooky”, however I didn’t get to color it then and pumpkin prompts are already displaying up on Instagram for September. So I made a decision to go along with “harvest” as a substitute and added a bit of Halloween cat with a jack-o-lantern to lean into my favourite vacation as a substitute of out-and-out ghosts.
In the meantime I’m already consuming my espresso from Goal’s ghost mug. The lip curves inward which is a bit of bizarre, nevertheless it additionally makes it more durable to spill your drink. Handy.

The entire design didn’t come collectively fully easily. I attempted utilizing a special white stamping polish and realized it wasn’t going to be opaque sufficient so I needed to swap again. I additionally determined to alternate between white and lightweight gray for the pumpkins in order that I may layer them over one another. Then I attempted to make use of a stamping decal that I’d made for a earlier nail artwork and hadn’t used…
Fairly, proper? That fuchsia colour is ideal for making black and white pop.
However the line type of the picture doesn’t actually match clear layered stamping that has no outlines. So I hunted round earlier than discovering my Halloween cat.
This isn’t the primary time I went with pumpkins to edge into Halloween with out fairly being there. Anybody keep in mind my Glam-kins?
