40 Nail Art Ideas – Orange, Purple & Green

Happy Friday everyone, time for my weekly Crumpet's Nail Tart's challenge. This week we bring you Orange, Purple & Green nails, perfect for the upcoming Halloween season.


In addition to this color prompt I had the challenge of geometric nails, so let's see the results shall we?


This look was pretty involved and time consuming, but I'm super pleased with the final result. The glitters are all Smitten Polish microglitters – Orange You Glad It's Pun-kin Season?*, Poach Busters* (green) and Out of the Darkness (purple).

Now the base of this look is an amazing new one-coat-perfect-for-nail-stamping black B Polished Midnight in Death Valley. This polish applied perfectly in one coat, no streaks and dried super quickly!

Now on to how I created this look.


First step was to take the microglitters and paint the non-sticky side of scotch tape. Then I cut up tiny triangles and stuck them to the back of my hand (see below).


Lessons learned from this whole mess, the stickum gets lost being stuck on my hand and the tiny triangles start to lift. When applying them to the black layer, I should have put a top coat on top to give the triangles a sticky base (might have helped with the lifting edges as you can see better in the next shot).


So overall, I'm pretty pleased with how these turned out, but I'm sad the triangles started to lift and the look was as textured as it was. But oh well, you live you learn, and hopefully all you will learn from my mistakes. I think this is definitely a look I will try for again!

I'm off to go apple picking and pumpkin picking this week at Apple Hill, can't wait! It's so very fall! Hope you all have fun adventures ahead and don't forget to check out all the other awesome orange, purple and green looks at the inlinkz below!
