Thanksgiving Nail Art Challenge - Pie & Desserts

Day four, Happy Thanksgiving! I know we're not doing turkeys just yet, but I think pie & desserts work well for today as well. I'm a junk food junkie, so I had trouble choosing just one dessert to use. I suppose I could have done more than one, but I didn't want to overdo it! So I went with the classic pumpkin pie.

I didn't really want to do just whole pies on each nail, nor did I want to do slices on each one. So I did sort of a side view of a slice of pie on each nail, and then a top view of a slice for an accent nail. I like how the pumpkin pie filling and the crust make for an interesting double French!

I also topped each piece with a dollop of whipped cream for good measure, and tried to swirl in just a bit of metallic orange to look like cinnamon or nutmeg on top. It worked out really well!

I started off with two coats of Sinful Colors Nirvana, and then free handed the pieces of pie with Elf Copper, and free handed an even thinner section in Zoya Jacqueline to look like the crust. 

I dotted the whipped cream with Wet n Wild French White Creme, and then revisited that with Copper again, swirling it in with a toothpick. While I free handed the tips, I only dotted the top of the pie crust on the accent nail.

I think it was another success! I feel sort of silly with pie on my nails, but at the same time I love it! It's shiny, fall-colored, and festive for the holiday.
