Jack O'Lantern Halloween Nails with Literary Lacquers

Happy Monday, dear readers! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and your week is off to a fabulous start! It's been a hard several days for me as I've been closely watching the wildfire situation in Sonoma County. I remember two years ago typing up a blog post while sitting in my in-las kitchen after evacuating for the Tubbs Fire at the time. While we may have sold our house and relocated ten months ago to Arizona, Northern California is still very much in my heart.  The latest Kincade Fire is far from over, but I feel as though I am breathing easier today for the friends and neighbors we left behind. Now let's hop in to today's blog post!

Halloween is only four days away, and I am only just now getting around to creating nail art! I had all these great plans, but the month just ran away from me. Thankfully I've got a look to share with you today.

To create this look, I started off with Every God and Devil There Ever Was by Literary Lacquers. This particular shade was created exclusively for the September Polish Pickup, and I made a mental note then that this polish would have to be used for a Halloween design. I fell in love with the way this nail lacquer played with a matte top coat and knew I would have to stick with the matte finish for my final look.

Once my nail polish base was dry, I paired UberChic Beauty Halloween 01 and Halloween 03 stamping plates with Black Stamping Polish by Powder Perfect and Bright Yellow Sprouts and Tulip Celebration Stamping Polishes by Born Pretty Store.

The final step was to add top coat, and for that, I used the Matte Top Coat by Glisten & Glow.

I had fun creating this design, and I hope you enjoy it as well! I'd love to get another Halloween design on my nails, if only I can enjoy another look for the holiday, although it is likely not going to make it up on the blog. Be sure to follow me on social media (linked below)so you can see if and what I come up with!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!

  1. I wish you could come do my nails! I'm jealous of your skillz!

  2. Wow that is incredible! The best I can do with nail art is some polka dots. I love the matte finish on the nails too.

  3. These are really cute!!! I have only tried stamping once.

  4. That matte finish makes this mani even more special. You're so talented!

  5. I like how the pumpkin on your ring nail is creepy! Great mani!

  6. How perfect for Halloween Nails! I love that base color!
