As I’ve been working on my pumpkin projects this year, I keep always reminding myself that the most popular projects are those that use the simplest amount of materials and are EASY to do with great results. With this in mind, I went to the bathroom toiletry drawer and decided to create some pumpkins from the most basic of materials…nail polish. As you probably already know, nail art is so HUGE right now. I’m constantly amazed by the clever ways people are doing their nails. I’m sure the skilled professional could do some crazier things with pumpkins than polka dots and pouring, but considering I have no nails (I have bitten them since I came out of the womb…must be a nervous tick), I’m not an expert when it comes to nail polish.
Determined, I pushed through. My polka dots weren’t perfect when applied with the nail polish applicator, but they were pretty cute. Hey, it worked pretty good as a paint in a jam! A much better solution than making a 7:30PM craft store run if I do say so myself. 🙂
I know there’s nothing really involved with dripping nail polish on a pumpkin, but I do really like the shimmer and iridescent look it gives off you can’t get with most paint. There’s so many cool colors out on the market…even the cheap brands, so play around with it! You could really come up with some cool results. And there’s no reason you couldn’t venture out past one solid color. Mix it up!
So what do you think? Will you be making a trip to the dollar store for some nail polish?
Until next time Swellions!
