Glittering Pumpkins

  I love this way this mani turned out!  I almost wish I had saved it for actual Halloween, but alas.  :)

Outdoors, shade
  I really wanted to use Zoya Tanzy, but I wanted it to be a bit darker... so I started this with two coats of NYC Spring Street, a nice darker orange creme I found at Target, then layered one coat of Tanzy over it.  I added pumpkins with Konad Special Black Pearl and BM-222 and BM-224 (ring finger).  I really love how that layering worked out here - the nails had an almost duochrome effect of the darker deep orange and the yellowy-light orange glow, it was fun.  Really pleased with the end result - very festive!


  1. I love the orange-- so bright and sparkly! Cute stamp, too!

  2. I am going to go and try to make my nails like this :D love it

  3. Lovin' this mani. I had to run out to my local coop and buy Tanzy. It's the perfect Halloween orange!

  4. This looks amazing! I actually did something SUPER similar to this a couple weeks ago. Same pumpkins, layered tanzy over an orange... great minds think alike, hahahah :)

  5. I am digging that Zoya polish!
