I knew it was going to be a pain and take forever, but I also wanted to challenge myself. I am so glad I did. I really love the result.
Funny thing is, I don't think I could carve that pumpkin. Really awesome! Naturally now I need it I can't for the life of me find where it came from. Whoever carved it is very talented though.
For my nails I started with 2 coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather. The brown swirlies are done in OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys. The little jack-o-lanterns and glowy area on my ring finger are done with Essie Orange, It's Obvious! and OPI Need Sunglasses? That ring finger.. ahhh so many layeerrs. The kitty and star are in Liquid Leather. The green around the mini jack-o-lanterns is a mix of OPI Need Sunglasses?, Essie Pretty Edgy and China Glaze I'm With The Lifeguard. It's all topped with two coats of Orly Polishield to try level it - it was pretty bumpy and still isn't completely smooth.
For all the designs I used a combination of a tiny brush and very tiny dotting tools. I also ended up light headed because I held my breath every time I did something. Doesn't matter; pretty nails.
Please check out all of the other lovely and very talented ladies taking part in this challenge!
