Jack-o-lanterns are a pretty standard nail art theme, so let’s get basic! 🤣 I painted this one clear back in November last year. It was all part of my plan to try and paint extra Halloween manis all year so I could post lots during my favorite nail art-ing month (October). I really might try to attempt it again for next year since it’s not a bad idea, it just couldn’t survive my creative shutdown.
And, while the base polish was unworthy, I wish I’d taken a little more time and gotten cleaner stamping images. I was in a rush to knock the stamping plate off my unused list. If only I’d known I’d use it twice this year. Hah!
- Base Polish:
- Lakimu’s 4210
- Stamping Polish:
- Born Pretty’s Orange Autumn
- Advanced Stamping Polish:
- Bonita’s Honey Dew Your Thing
- Stamping Plate:
Ah, Lakimu. The most garbage thermal polish brand I’ve ever used. Definitely not worth the $1 price tag no matter how nice some of their color combos were. I mean…my photos look pretty good despite my awful stamping job and they don’t change the fact that the formula is both a jelly and spends all of its time in the warm state once you paint your nails.
So despite what you can see in the photos when I used ice water to get the color to show, this is what you’d see:
Not nearly as fun as…
And now I’m off to check that I dumped this polish in my de-stash pile. I have way too many good polishes to waste time on one that sucks. Until next time, friends! 🙋♀️
