Falling for Nail Art: Great Pumpkin

      Pumpkins. Pumpkins everywhere. This time of year is my favorite. It's finally getting cold outside, and I can start wearing my favorite chunky sweaters and dresses with tights. My house smells delicious thanks of the insane amount of pumpkin candles I have everywhere. I've already made my almost famous spicy pumpkin soup twice. I even bought pumpkin costumes for the cats. (You can check my Instagram for pictures.) Needless to say, I'm obsessed with pumpkins. This challenge was a breeze. 

     For all the information, check out the rest under the cut...

Great Pumpkin

    I think anyone can pull this off. I started with two coats of Essie Fear or Desire and topped it with OPI Goin' Ape-ricot. It's hard to see, but I added some orange lines with acrylic paint. This all could have been done with nail polish and a small brush. Finally, I added the stem and a few leaves with vines. Simple, right? 

    It's a little odd showing my thumb like this, but it was my favorite nail.

      I couldn't help my use a matte top coat on this. I think I like it better this way. The glitter in the OPI looks fabulous like this. 

      How's the lighting? It's getting dreary here and I can't always use daylight now. I'll try my best to use it when possible. I hope this doesn't look too off. 

Don't forget! You can still join in on the challenge. You can post them on your blog and add your link below, post them on Instagram with the tag #fallingfornailart, or you can share them on my Facebook page and I'll share them from there. I'll also be making a Pinterest board!  Do as many or as few as you'd like. Here's the schedule:
