The One With the Pumpkin Nail Art that I Really Don't Like

Nothing to Disclose

Good morning polished world! How are you all doing on this wonderful Monday?  I apologize for not posting but I got distracted and thought I had posted.  Actually I'm even behind on Instagram too.  Not quite sure how that happened since I feel I have been diligent, but who knows.

Today's nail art is something that looked MUCH better in my head than it did on my nails.  Remember the other day when I posted the graveyard coming from the cuticle and I said pumpkins by my cuticle would be a cute idea.  Yeah, they would probably be cute if they weren't jack o'lanterns.  I ran out of room, so I just did the eyes, and well I really did not like them.  But since I'm all about the blog again, I figured I would post them.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • OPI - I Can Never Hut Up
  • OPI - No Tan Lines
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
  • Acrylics
The thing I really liked about this manicure was the base.  I used two coats of I Can Never Hut Up, which is one of my all time favorite grey polishes by OPI.  When that was dry, I went through with a black polish and created the dry brush look.  I then added the pumpkins first by outlining them with a black acrylic.  I then filled in the orange and green and added some darker orange shading.

Then came time for the jack o'lantern faces.  This is where the manicure took a turn for the disaster-cure.  I didn't plan the spacing out enough and had no room for the little mouths, therefore I had tiny triangle eyes, at first.  I tried to fix my mess, and made the triangles larger, which I wasn't happy with.

Even though I wasn't happy with the design, other people thought they were cute.  They said they were peek-a-boo jack o'lanterns.

What do you think?  Hate them, love them?

Until next time, <3.
