Pie Inspiration

I know I wanted to do another pie design and I wanted to base it on Pumpkin Pie for the Challenge Your Nail Art Challenge.  At first I did brownish-orange polish (OPI Schnapps Out Of It) and then dotted on a neutral polish around the cuticles to give the illusion of a pie shell.  I didn't love it.  I decided I wanted to re-do it, thinking I just didn't like the way I did the shell.  I wanted it more rounded.  Then I thought of the Ruffian manicure.  I have never done one and thought this might be just the occasion to do so.  So using Pumpkin Pie colors I came up with this.

When I first did it I was amazed with myself and then after wearing it a few days I wasn't so sure.  Now, looking back at the pictures, I like it again.  I think with this color combo and the neutral being close to the cuticle it makes for some weird everyday nail art, but seeing it in pictures, I am really happy with it.

I used Julep Zoe and Florence.  I used the Julep Plié Wand and that gave me so much more control with the polish.  There wasn't even much difference between my left and right hands.  Have I told you before how much I love my Plié Wand?  The last picture is in the shade for reference.

Until tomorrow!
