13 Days of Halloween Day 1: Pumpkins
Its finally time!! The 13 Days of Halloween Challenge is upon us. Day 1 is pumpkins and I'm already failing. Haha! I did one design with Jack-O-Lanterns and they were kinda cute, but not what I wanted. So I went back to the drawing board and came up with this! I started with a base of OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons and then I marked off with some french manicure guides for a half moon. I used Zoya Jancyn for the orange in my pumpkins. They didn't come out as perfect half moons, but I prefer that! All pumpkins are misshapen and such, so I think it goes. I went in a painted some stems in Essie Pretty Edgy green. I also put in some curly stems on my thumb and ring finger for a little accent. I finished up by adding some detail on the pumpkins in Essie A Crewed Interest. I ended up really loving this even though its not very Halloween-y. I like how they are subtle. The colors went well together, but Jancyn had stained my cuticles from my previous paint job. O well!
