Pumpkin Patch Manicure

Good Morning Babes :) ! This past Sunday we went to the pumpkin patch and had so much fun that I wanted to start off my Halloween mani's with something fall but still Halloween. There were pumpkins all over the place and leaves all over the ground, it was just all so pretty. I used all Bettina: Art Deco Brown, Nature Trees, Resort Sunrise, Resort Starfish, and Metallic Copper. I stamped with BM 210 and BM 224 using Konad special black polish, with Seche as my top coat. Art Deco Brown is what I used as my base, the formula is AMAZING, only took one coat to reach opacity, and dried super fast. Then I sponged (using a piece of makeup sponge) orange, yellow and green in no specific order and I didn't care if they were the exact same, I actually wanted each nail to look a little different. I used plate 210 with copper, then stamped slightly to the side using black for all fingers except for my ring/accent finger. On my ring/accent finger I used plate 224 and black. Here's how it turned out...

No flash

And just for fun I used Essie Matte About You to see how it looked mattified. Love It!

Here's a swatch of Art Deco Brown on its own. As you can see there's a raindrop on my index finger lol, it was starting to rain but I was determined to get at least one decent picture. Below are the colors used and the pumpkin that my little monster picked out.

How do you like my pumpkin patch manicure? I think it came out ok for my first sponging attempt :) Thanks for stopping by ;-)~
