Hello, all! The theme for the matte Mani collab this month was pumpkin spice lattès. I went with a plain pumpkin mani instead since I don’t have many coffee-themed plates. Little did I realize that I barely have any pumpkin-themed plates either!
I don’t have much to say for this mani. It combines a few of my favourite things in nail art – texture polish, reverse-stamping, reverse-stamping on negative space, and a bunch of my oldie-but-goodie Tonic Polishes.
The texture polish is Elphie, a pixie dust by Zoya, the best kind of texture polish IMHO. I stamped the pumpkin images from Creative Shop plate-147 using Moyra black stamping polish. I filled in the images with a bunch of Tonics – Lava Lust (orange), Lemons & Cream (yellow) mixed with Lava Lust for the flowers, Promise of Spring (light green) and You’ll Move Mountains (dark green). And of course I finished it all off with matte top coat, seeing as how this was done for a matte mani collab.
Let me know what you think of this. I have another pumpkin mani coming up for the Halloween collab – this is when I realized how sorely I am missing pumpkin plates! Until then, toodles, stay safe and here’s hoping we soon see some sanity return to the US government and consequently the world!
