Shiny Pumpkins

[AD*]    Happy Halloween-eve! Halloween is one of my favourite holidays of the year (second only to Christmas) because I get to dress up, decorate my house, and also because it presents so many opportunities for nail art! 

This year I was asked by Naio Nails to create some Halloween nail art using their Urban Graffiti gel polishes, and I wanted to try and mix of matte and shiny with this pumpkin design. 

I've been wanting to try a matte gel top coat for ages so I made sure that was one of the polishes I chose for this collaboration, and I was like a kid marvelling when I saw that it doesn't go matte until you put it under the light. Science! (Or not science just magic who knows...). Anyway, read on to find out how I created these nails. 

So for this design I started with the Urban Graffiti Base Coat and then I used Urban Graffiti - Hemlock and Urban Graffiti - Serious Black as my base colours. 

Then I used acrylic paint and Naio Nails 001 Fine Detail Brush for the pumpkin detailing.
(Side note - I did originally paint these without eyebrows but they looked really weird for some reason... so pumpkins have eyebrows now)

I then finished with Urban Graffiti Top Coat on my pumpkins, and Urban Graffiti Matte Top Coat for the black nails. 

What do you think? Have you tried Urban Graffiti gel polishes before?

  1. Love them, as always! The orange polish with faces is especially cool-looking and festive.
