Fall into Autumn Challenge: Day 7 - Pumpkins

This is going to be a quick post because I'm on my way out the door for work! I did my Pumpkins for this weeks FiA theme, but I have to admit, I'm not super proud of this mani. I pictured it in my head being a lot cuter, but for me it left something to be desired. If I had had more time I would have definitely added to it. AND it didn't help that the night before I was going to do these, I completely broke off my index nail so it's a silly little nub! Today I broke another one on this hand so I chopped them all - but you will see those soon! Here are my pumpkin nails!

For the base color I used Sally Hansen Crushed, and I freehanded the tips using Wet n Wild Sagreena the Teenage Witch. My freehand skills weren't that great, lol so I added a bit of sparkle using Orly Monster Mash. My little Jack-o-Lantern actually came out better than I expected because I did this mani with my non-dominant hand! I used Stripe Rite in black for the little face.

Here's another shot in slightly different lightning.

I hope you guys like it, even if I wasn't totally thrilled. I promise next week's will be MUCH better! My lightbox just came in the mail today so hopefully I will be trying that out soon - I will let you guys know how it works - I got a great deal! :]
