This pumpkin art is just as simple as the hearts in the original design. I'm using a medium sized dotting tool and a detail brush with white polish. The pumpkin shapes were inspired by this adorable design by The Lacquerologist! You just made two dots touching in the middle, and a simple line coming out of the top with the detail brush. I can do this design for Tutorial Tuesday if that's hard to picture? Comment below to let me know!
The base and jelly layers are OPI Ya'll Come Back Ya Hear? from the Texas collection (some of the best jelly polishes I own are from that collection!) and its a really awesome orange jelly polish. It's more opaque than the China Glaze Keepin' It Teal I used in the Pond Hearts mani, so I didn't have to do as many layers!
I think I did a total of three layers of pumpkins, with OPI Ya'll Come Back Ya Hear? as the first layer, layers in between the pumpkins, and final layer. Before the final orange jelly layer, I used my detail brush and did some quick Jack O' Lantern faces on a few pumpkins to make it more Halloween appropriate and fun!
You can see the depth of the different layers of pumpkins in this close up!
What do you think? Pond Manis are quickly becoming one of my favorite techniques and I can see myself doing a lot in the future!
Comment below if you want a tutorial tomorrow, I won't bother if you all get it after seeing my last Pond Hearts Tutorial Tuesday post! Thanks for reading!
