Since Pumped Up Pumpkin has a clear base, I applied it over another polish so it would cover completely. I don't Pumped Up Pumpkin is dense enough to have covered in a few coats, and I didn't want to use up my mini in one manicure! So I put a couple coats of Pumped Up Pumpkin on top of Zoya Myrta.
Myrta itself is a shimmery reddish orange polish, so unfortunately a bit of the glitter gets lost in it, but not completely. You can still see the orange and red hex glitter, as well as the tiny micro glitter in between the larger pieces. The holographic micro glitter really catches the light in person!
I only applied two coats of Pumped Up Pumpkin over two coats of Myrta, and then applied one coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl on top to smooth it all out. Pumped Up Pumpkin is a little thirsty, so it's not entirely smooth and glossy for me. Another coat would have probably smoothed it out though.
Now that I have some festive nails, I'm ready for my first taste of pumpkin for this season! I'm totally stoked for more Halloween and autumn polishes all month long, along with some Halloween nail art toward the end of October too!
