Nail-aween Challenge Day 9: Pumpkins

It is hard to believe that the Nail-aween challenge is almost over, leaving just one more manicure to complete in time for Halloween. The theme for today's challenge is none other than pumpkins. Since I already did a stamped Jack-o-Lantern manicure, I wanted to try something with freehand art. I'm really excited about how it turned out and I hope you like it too...

The base of this manicure is the very dark and vampy piCture pOlish Aphrodisiac with the perfect tagline of "this potion leaves you with a magic touch!" For the pumpkins I used a variety of acrylic paints and attempted a one stroke technique. Turns out I need better brushes for the technique, but I think the pumpkins turned out cute anyway. I'm ready for the fall harvest...

I'm pretty sure a few fresh swatches of piCuture pOlish Aphrodisiac were in order. This is another one of my favorite fall vampy shades. A dark plum purple shimmer with a wonderful creamy formula. It is pigmented enough that one careful coat can be enough, but I used two to even everything out for the swatches. No top coat...
