13 Days of Halloween: Patterned Pumpkins

Press Sample

Hello all! Today I have some patterned pumpkins which was inspired by a cute plate I saw at Home Goods. I actually own a different one than what inspired this one, but I loved the idea of different oranges and patterns on a pumpkin. Now as I type this, I regret not buying it, but how many pumpkin plates do I need? The answer is as many as I want!


I just wanted all the oranges! I have my Stella Chromas on a table rack and I realized, wow, I have a lot of oranges from her brand. I love her shimmers and sparkles. I had more with flakes and such, but I wanted to keep it to shimmers. I also used Tangled Tinsel to have as a nice background to the oranges.

Here are the base colors. I originally was going to do a sheer and then switched to a neutral and I cannot decide if I went with the right color.

  • Base: Morgan Taylor she’s a natural
  • Glitter: Stella Chroma tangled tinsel
  • Black Stella Chroma Queen in the North

Here are the oranges I used from thumb to pinky:

  • Stella Chroma The Ides of Autumn
  • Stella Chroma We’re Golden
  • Stella Chroma Halley’s Comet
  • Stella Chroma The Ides of Autumn
  • Stella Chroma Pumpkin Everything 

Here are some close ups! My thumb was polka dots, which I forgot to take a picture of, but you've seen polka dots before!

Some of these oranges are actually still available on Stella Chroma but the majority were limited editions. So what does that teach you? When you see a Stella Chroma orange, don't delay!

  1. Great manicure. I love your pumpkin designs. I think my favorite is still your leopard print pumpkin you did last year. The polishes you used for this manicure are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you! My colleague came in with a leopard print pumpkin shirt last week and I actually showed her that mani! I definitely think I will repeat that manicure this year (or at least plaid pumpkins--another favorite!)
