CNT Halloween Nail Art Challenge: Pumpkins
It is time to post another mani for the Halloween Nail Art Challenge that is being put on by the Facebook group, Crumpet's Nail Tarts. I threw this mani together at the last minute last night so I don't really have too much to say about it except that I really like the way that it turned out! I think it is very simple, cute, and different. All though I haven't looked at everyone else's manis so I could be wrong about the unique look. I did forget to leave my accent nail blank while painting the orange, so the Black Creme is over a layer of orange, but Wet N Wild's Black Creme is opaque in one coat anyways. :-) Napping before mani-ing is dangerous. ;-)
Base coat: Sally Hansen Triple Strong Advanced Gel Nail Fortifier
Base color: Citrine from Sinful Colors - 1 coat, Black Creme from Wet N Wild - 1 coat
Over Citrine I layered one Layer of Serena and Chloe from Sinful Colors. I wanted to do both layers in Serena and Chloe but I was afraid it would photograph more red than orange.
Pumpkins: A mixture of Crimson Red, Lemon Yellow, and Titanium White acrylic paint from Artist's Loft applied with a dotting tool
Stems: A mixture of Viridian acrylic paint from Artist's loft and my franken orange, applied with a small detail brush
Face: Lamp Black acrylic paint from Artist's Loft, applied with a small detail brush
Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat
