1. Using an orange polish, paint a French manicure on the nail. It does not have to be perfect.

2. Using orange acrylic paint a shade lighter than the polish (if needed, add white acrylic paint to lighten it), paint a long oval shape in the middle and two crescent shapes on either side, leaving a gap between each.

3. Use brown acrylic paint to draw a stem on top of the oval in the center. Use green acrylic paint to draw vines and leaves on either side of the pumpkin.

4. Add a little bit of white acrylic paint to the brown, green, and orange paints to make lighter shades and add highlights until you are happy. Apply top coat.
