The #CBBOctNails challenge for day 5 is orange nails. I am not a huge fan of orange, but Halloween seems to be full of it. I went with the obvious, Jack O’Lantern Pumpkins.
Polishes used for my orange nail art are
- Essie Roarrrrange
- Zoya Storm (it is getting a lot of use during this challenge)
- Zoya Chloe
I started with a base of Essie Roarrrrange, it is bright, opaque and goes on evenly. I then added the eyes, noses and mouth with a small brush using Zoya Storm. Roarrrrange is very bright, so to make it more wearable, I added Zoya Chloe as an effect coat over the whole nail. The red/orange/gold holo flakies take away from the OMG crazy orange look. Plus it means that you do not have to try and give the ‘pumpkin’ orange some depth with lines.
I am not super happy with how they turned out, my jack o lanterns are not exactly scary looking, but my freehand is terrible. If you are a beginner to nail art or just draw like a 5 year old like I do, I have a second look for you to try out
This is an old one, but if you want an easy orange look, check out Layla Bubbly Effect polishes. I paired the black over Essie Roarrrrange here. Super simple but gets a great Halloween look in minutes (well a little longer waiting for coats of polish to dry, but for the beginner to nail art, fool proof and a great look).
You do need to wait until your base colour is completely dry before applying Layla Bubbly Effect or it lifts that polish too. I posted a couple of orange polishes before if you do not think you can pull off orange.
