PolishPals Thanksgiving Pumpkin Nail Art

9:00:00 AM

Happy Sunday Polished World!!!  How are you all today?  As long as I'm sitting in front of a heater today, I'll be great!  It got really chilly here this weekend and we just got our first little accumulation of snow.  I love the snow, just hate the cold.  If only there was a way to have snow in 75 degree weather.....

Today's nails were not planned at all.  I originally sat down to do a manicure for Catching Fire, but the odds were not in my favor and I had three disasticures.  I decided to abandon the Catching Fire theme and move into a Thanksgiving theme!

I remembered this adorable manicure by PolishPals that I wanted to create back in October, but got delayed with all my Halloween manicures.  I'm happy I delayed in re-creating Jenna's manicure because she created this little tutorial!

I am happy my Catching Fire manicure failed....let's take a look at my cute little pumpkins!

Colors Used:
  • Base
    • Zoya - Avery
  • Pumpkins
    • Maybelline - Sweet Clementine
    • Sinful Colors - Nirvana
    • Zoya - Josie
    • Orly - Liquid Vinyl
Cute, right?  I can't tell you how much I love these little pumpkins!!!  To me, they look like little cartoons.

To get the look, I followed the tutorial I linked above.  First, I started with my base coat of Avery.  Then I took my orange polish and created the pumpkins on my nails.  With my nail art brush, I added the brown stem, then started outlining my pumpkins with my black polish.  When the black was dried, I went through and added the green leaf and outlined that with more black.

After one day, my base shrunk and my little pumpkins were pulling back from the tips of my nails.  I tried to touch them up it didn't go so well.  Since I loved the pumpkins so much though, I decide to re-do them without a base color, and that's currently what I'm wearing.  I'll probably snap a shot of that version with my iPhone sometime this week and share it on Instagram as a comparison.  Personally, I'm liking both versions the same.

What do you think?  Liking the little pumpkins?

Until next time, <3.
