Handpainted pumpkin nail art to start this list because I believe in DIY supremacy! I’d remove the gold glitter stripes, though, if it was me. Pure white is already beautiful as is, adding more gold is overkill.
Yellow french tips to spice up the entirety of the design. And, I love how they made the pumpkins look like tips as well.
Who said there has to be a pumpkin drawing for it to be a pumpkin nail art? I am so obsessed with these pumpkin nails that literally imitated a pumpkin skin!
Your Halloween pumpkins wearing different expressions… incredibly beautiful. And, I love the orange base. These nails will go well with your trick-or-treat costume.
Matte nails are always my favorite, hence, I picked this one. But I’d like to give some credit to those handpainted pumpkin and ghost designs and orange marble nails. Awesome!
Some DIY nails again for the DIY kids. Ain’t those pumpkins cute?
Flamboyant leaves and pumpkin design for the fall season! Save it on your list and make your autumn nails dashing and splendid.
I really love seeing pumpkins in different expressions. Emojis, but Halloween version. These cute, little pumpkins are ready for your short nails.
The pumpkin designs are on her thumbs. Can you see the encircled image? That aside, I am so impressed with how beautiful orange foil is when mixed with black. Also, those spider web design cuties are hitting the right spots.
What’s the next best thing about this set after the reversed pumpkin stamps? Right, you are! It’s the gradient from green to yellow then back to green. Such a lovely base color.
The silver pumpkin looks good, but my favorite in this set would be the plaid stamp designs. And, of course, the chestnut surface color nailed it.
I don’t think that pumpkin is handmade. But if it is, wow! Just wow! This set looks so dazzling up close and personal.
The artist would like to apologize if the pumpkin looks like an orange apple or a watermelon. Well, it looks pumpkin enough for me, considering that it is actually a freehand drawing.
Plaid and stripes design, shimmering brown glitters, and handmade pumpkin drawing… this set will complete your “Happy Thanksgiving” look.
Something shiny for those with super short nails. In all fairness, the elements of thanksgiving are complete.
Some people are just really born with pure talent. I can’t believe these pumpkins are handpainted. I mean, how can one person possess so much concentration?
Nothing can go wrong with glitters and matte polish. Here’s a unique pumpkin with a cheetah-inspired print.
DIY pumpkin french tips for busy people. Just make sure you have those pumpkin stamps or any other similar design, for that matter.
Chubby pumpkins seem to look good in super short stiletto nails. I like this set, her nails are too cute.
Do you like your pumpkins in different colors? Here’s one you can copy. They are well-suited for almond-shaped nails, but you can still try them even if your nails have a different shape.
Ah, a calm and peaceful color for something new. Pumpkins falling from the night sky… I’d love to wear these on Halloween night.
Peeking night animals at your fingernail tips. Wait, turkey ain’t a night animal. Well, no matter. The whole design can make up for the inconsistency. The cute little owl nail design is the winner for me.
Simple and neat design for your everyday routine.
Now, here is something fresh and uncommon. White pumpkins in silver layout, anyone? I love how they complement the blue glittered polish. White and blue looking nails really contrast each other well.
You can definitely wear this at the start of autumn. But if you like the color, you can always just change the name of the season. Likewise, you can always turn the pumpkin into a snowflake or perhaps the sun.
Pumpkin pies are always perfect for Thanksgiving. Have you ever tried one? If not, then you can at least put a pumpkin pie on your nails. Show them to mom as a sign. “Hey, ma! Pumpkin pie, shall we?”
I wonder what exact shade of pink was used on her ring fingernail. I want to try it one of these days. With the pumpkin design, black matte, and silver glitters, of course.
Sweater nails always look good with plaid nails. Add a little pumpkin (or big and many if you want) and your pumpkin and fall nails are all set.
The artist said she freehanded the little pumpkins that’s why they’re not perfect. OMG, is she for real?! They are definitely, absolutely, insanely perfect in my eyes! Don’t you agree?
Light orange pumpkin in plum glittered nails… never knew they’d look this stunning. Wow!
Here’s something quirky and playful for those who want it colorful. You can make these nails yourself as long as you have the pumpkin stamps. Use fine liners for the leaves, all right?
Pretty in pink. This may have a very basic design, but it is still worth mentioning. But, Uhm, can I say something out of context? That Pikachu ring is freaking awesome!
If there is pretty in pink, then there is cool in blue. Those pumpkins are handpainted so can I just say that I am in awe of how she drew those white plaid lines overlay?
Lavender lover? I got you, girl! But check out that pumpkin… can you believe that she just painted it in freehand mode? Yup, no lies. She is definitely amazing.
How about this? Do you think they are freehand? I feel like they are. This matte white background takes away from the ‘fall’ look and you could wear a design like this as your April nails if you just like pumpkins.
These pumpkins are hot and dangerous. Oh, and they are nail strips. You can imitate these nails even in DIY mode.
Ooh, can you see those cute, little pumpkins smiling back at you? I need to say this… can I have them as pets? I love the colorway, by the way.
If your trick-or-treat costume is a witch, I’m gonna have to recommend these nails. They look like they could curse at any moment. Don’t get me wrong, though, because I think they’re infamously lovely.
Entitled “ Patchwork Halloween Mani,” I can tell that the star of this set is actually the patchwork and not the pumpkin. Who cares? They are both exquisite.
Acorn and pumpkin in 3D nail art, y’all. Add them to your list now!
I noticed that most witch costumes are partnered with violet. That’s probably why these nail arts are giving me witch vibes. I like both the handmade pumpkins and the pumpkin stamps.
Something classy and elegant for the minimalist friend.
Another very simple design for those who don’t like flashy things. Our preferences, as people with different personalities, really vary.
Pumpkins in a different color for a change. I think the base is rose gold and the pumpkins are with a touch of creamy orange and olive khaki.
The artist called them “abstract pumpkins” although they don’t really look abstract to me. I love the matte top coat for each nail, you see.
These pumpkins are wearing different faces. I feel like they are a bit scary. Do you think so, too?
Cinderella pumpkins! Let your nails experience magical and enchanted by wearing this set. It’s best to wear them if you decide to wear a Cinderella costume for Halloween.
