Pumpkin Patch Mani | Halloween 2018

Hello everyone! Happy Halloween!!

I know I’ve been inundating you with manicures lately, but I’ve been trying to get in the last few before the end of the month. October has so much going on between Thanksgiving (I’m in Canada eh), Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Halloween of course. November will be a month where I can be free to do whatever theme I want for a manicure, and at a more leisurely pace.. and then we will be getting into Holiday mani’s!!!

For today however, I am recreating a mani that I did a year or two ago.







  1. For this manicure, I started by applying my favourite base coat, Orly Bonder, to all of my nails.
  2. I then painted my thumb, pointer finger and pinky a burnt orange creme (OPI It’s a Piazza Cake), my middle finger a white creme (China Glaze White on White), and my ring finger with a sparkly green (ILNP Riddle Me This). This was my first time using ILNP Riddle Me This and it is gorgeous! It’s a deep blue jelly with an emerald green shimmer and scattered holographic sparkles.
  3. To do the pumpkins on my middle finger I simply used the same burnt orange polish on a small dotting tool. You can easily create a pumpkin by placing two dots close together. You can draw the pumpkins in alternating rows, or scattered, whichever you prefer. Then using a toothpick, I drew green stems coming from the top of each pumpkin using a sparkly green polish (China Glaze Paper Chasing). I left space between each pumpkin in a row so that I could also draw gold dots in between each pumpkin, using Nina Ultra Pro Big Spender.
  4. I then applied a top coat to all of my nails (Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat), and dropped a triangle stud from La Paloma Boutique on both my thumb, pointer and pinky nails near the cuticle before the top coat dried.

When I first created this manicure a year or two ago, I had really short nails. So I just knew that I needed to recreate it this year now that my nails are in their full glory!

What is your favourite polish shade or nail art for October or Halloween?

    1. Haha thank you!! It’s not so bad when you are using a dotting tool. It doesn’t necessarily require as much coordination as a paint brush might. Yes, I will totally be featuring that green again during the holidays!
