Thao Nguyen demonstrates how to do Jack O' Lantern nail art.


Prep the nail and apply a coat of Morgan Taylor Stick With It base coat. Paint two coats of Morgan Taylor Orange Crush. Allow nails to dry. Use a short brush to paint the outline of a pumpkin with Morgan Taylor Little Black Dress. Using the same polish and brush, paint the shape of the pumpkin’s eyes.


Using the same brush, outline the pumpkin features by painting a mouth.  


Fill in the pumpkin’s mouth. Use white polish and a small brush to fill in the eyes.


Create small black dots on the top and bottom corners of the nail. Once dry, finish the look with a layer of Morgan Taylor Make It Last top coat to seal the design.
