I was so excited to see witch inspired nail art in the Nail-Aween Challenge. What better inspiration for witch than The Wizard of Oz?? It's one of my all time favorite movies. With this in mind, I created black and white stripes for the socks worn by the Wicked Witch of the East, shown under Dorthy's house. I did an accent nail using Sally Hansen's Green with Envy to match the Wicked Witch of the West's green skin and added a pointed black hat. I decided to add some red poppies to the striped nails to complete the mani and tie it all into The Wizard of Oz.
For the pumpkin nail art, I thought briefly of doing Jack-O'-Lantern nails but finally decided against that. Jack-O'-Lanterns seemed overdone, and you know how I love thinking differently! I decided to do actual pumpkins. I used Sally Hansen Sun Kissed as the orange base. The shading was done by mixing black and white with Sun Kissed to create the dark and light colors. Green with Envy was used the same way for the leaves. I took this picture slightly from the side in an attempt to trick the eye into seeing width and roundness.
