NOTD: Pumpkin Graffiti

Hello, Beautiful!

Today I have another Halloween inspired mani. This is super simple and easy to do; you just need orange polish and a stamping plate with a splatter-like design. I used some brand of stamping plate m70. I plan to do this mani with other colors - like a lime cream, neon purple, pink, etc., as well as layering the graffiti design using different polishes for stamping.

To re-create this NOTD:

  • 1 coat of Deborah Lippmann Hard Rock Hydrating Hardener, used as my base coat
  • 2 coats of Finger Paints nail polish in Outta Sight Orange
  • 1 coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat to make sure everything is nice and dry before stamping. I usually wait 10 minutes before I stamp.
  • Using Wet n Wild Wild Shine polish in Black Creme, stamp the splatter/graffiti design from a stamping plate (I used m70) onto each nail. I applied the design various ways to vary the pattern.
  • 1 coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat to finish it off.


  1. waaah I love the design! perfect for halloween party <3

  2. I love this design! where do you get your stamping plate? Did you buy them online??

  3. @ ngocupham: I purchased a set of Mash stamping plates online. Here is a link to that blog post, which includes a link to all 25 plates in that set that I stamped on paper:


    The set is currently unavailable (at least in the link I included in that blog post), but I'm sure you can find them somewhere online.

    I know the Born Pretty Store sells identical plates, but they are not the same quality as the Mash plates. I had planned to do a comparison on them but never got around to it. I guess I'll have to do that soon!

  4. this image plate is not from the MASH set, I have the set and there is not a M70,
    I even checked the link you left to make sure was the same set, and no this is not a part of that set.

  5. I think I found my halloween konadicure!
    Does WnW black creme smear like konad black? I'm always smearing my konad black.

  6. @ BubblyFairy: It's pretty easy to mix-up my stamping plates. I do not have all my stamping plates up on my website and I don't write down where they are from (Mash, Bundle Monster, Born Pretty Store, Konad, Chez Delaney, etc.).

    I'll update my blog post to reflect that it could be any brand stamping plate that I used.

  7. @ Beata: I find any polish will smear if I don't let it dry for at least 5 to 10 minutes (depending on design) before applying Seche Vite. Sometimes if I use something else - like Orly Glosser - it won't smear. I only had a little smearing with this particular mani, but at least for this mani it kind of blends in :)

  8. Looks great..
    At first I thought you did the pattern by hand..
    I didn't know Konad has a plate like that :)

  9. I would've never guessed that was a stamp! :)

  10. Oh I just Loved it Crystal!! :D Is so Halloween *-* and Pumpkin Just PERFECT :D


  11. Ooooh this is perfect for Halloween <3

  12. @ Yasinisi: It's not a Konad plate, but I can't remember what type it is. It is either a Born Pretty Store plate, Mash plate or Bundle Monster plate.

  13. I fell in love with this because I cannot do splatter mani's to save my life! Now I know there's a stamp out there that gives me the splatter without the headache, yay!

  14. I like how random that image is! I don't think I have it though :(
