Pumpkin freehand nail art

I am soooo late posting this one guys, I'm so sorry...as usual, i have been really busy over the last few days and  things don't show any sign of slowing down.  But here we are Mimi at your service and ready to show you some rocking nail art!  I was looking about on the net for some inspiration for pumpkin nails for crumpets nail tarts challenge on facebook, and wow the nail wish had done some wiiiiiicked pumpkin nails...so i drew inspiration from her and come up with my own take.

I must admit i am dead proud of these, you know when you're doing a mani and you know its gonna look the nuts??....its always opposite ends of the scale for me....either i really like them or i dislike them a lot...and nine times out of ten the ones i have spent longest on i seem to hate!!

Fortunately this is one of the occasions when it all went brilliantly(ish) and i could relax and have some real fun with them...i like them because they are different from the usual pumpkins that surface this time of year, the base colour for one, which i must give credit to the nail wish for as i would never have used a nude colour for a base, again, this is different from the usual black and orange bases used in Halloween manis.  I used acrylic paints for the rest of this manicure and goo old seche vite for the topcoat. 

As always i hope you guys like this one, i sure do...in fact i felt bummed i had to take it off or my next lot.....skulls especially for my beautiful sister...stay tuned!
