Pumpkin Patch Nails!

October just started and I'm feeling all Fall-y. I bought these cute pie pumpkins at the store the other day, and they're sitting around my house as decoration until I get the urge to cook them. They inspired me to do pumpkin patch nails!

Here are all the polishes I used in this mani.

Heres a look at the sponging before I added pumpkin lines and leaves. I went in and added a little more CoverGirl Candy Corn after this to try and make the pumpkins less neon from the Orly Orange Punch. Sponging is so fun and the cleanup wasn't as bad as it looks here.
My nails, pre-cleanup, made another entrance during the drawing of Secret Pumpkin names for my Facebook group. It's like Secret Santa, but Halloween themed! And I drew the names out of my fiance's sailor hat :P.

  7. Pumpkins!!! I think I need to do a pumpkin mani - it's sooo been on the brain. I love how you texturized yours.

  8. This is soooo cute!! I love how sponging looks before you add top coat. Whenever I sponge, I'm always like "ew .. !" before I add the top coat and it gets all smoothed out and the colors mix a little bit. LOL

    I love the curly little green vines! LOL ADORABLE!

    PS - I NEED ChG Peachy Keen!!

  9. Thanks so much! The vines in that location were kind of my idea of a pumpkin moon mani.
