Pumpkin Patch

It's that time of year... HALLOWEEN!! Now while I'm not big into creepy, horror stuff, I do love Halloween. This is mostly because I have an excuse to dress up in a fun costume (different every year :) and get candy! And I seriously LOVE candy! :)
 So for my first Halloween nail art, I've chosen to do jack-o-lanterns! Carving pumpkins has always been one of my favorite fall activities, and visiting the pumpkin patch is definitely a fun treat.
 On each nail, I tried to give the pumpkin a different face from the last one. Some look scary, and then there's ones like my ring finger that are just smiling happily. :)
 When designing this mani, I knew right away that I wanted to try out a silver background. And I'm actually really happy with it! I thought about black, but I think that would have been too much... what do you all think? Should I have done a different background polish?
 A final shot of my right hand... I apologize for all of the pics, but the lighting in my house was terrible, and I really wanted you to be able to get a good idea of what it looks like. It is pretty cute if I do say so myself. :)
And since I'm left-handed, I elected not to try to paint pumpkin faces with my right hand. So I just left the pumpkins plain. I still think they're cute, but do prefer the ones with faces. Which do you like better: plain or carved?

Come back soon for my next Halloween nail art! (Frankenstein- themed! :)
