Weekly Mani: It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Purchased by Me

It's that time of year when pumpkin patches are open and all the kids are getting ready for Halloween.  But most importantly, it's the time of year for "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"!  My favorite Halloween special.  In all honesty, we watch it year round in my house.

Naturally, my first Halloween themed mani of the year just has to the Great Pumpkin!

I started with a base of Couture Vintage Denim - the perfect stary sky base.  Vintage Denim is a navy jelly base with awesome, dense blue shimmer. 
Couture Gel Nail Polish

I then used acrylic paint to freehand my favorite Great Pumpkin scene.

This is my first attempt at using acrylics with gel, and it has definitely been a learning experience.  It's super important you make sure to encase all of the acrylic paint in gel when you top coat.  If you don't, water will penetrate the paint and cause bubbling.  I had to redo a few fingers thanks to that.  :(

Be sure to check back in a few days for swatches of the two glitters from the IBD Tinsel Town collection.  And I have a few OPI Gelcolor swatches to share this week too. 

I hope everyone has a great Halloween Season!
