First off, I don’t really understand the name – why not Jack-o-Lanterns? Though I guess pumpkin… pumpkin patch… unless it’s just some random pop culture reference I’m missing. Regardless, it’s a cute design and I absolutely love carved pumpkins – I haven’t carved a pumpkin since I was a kid and it’s something I’ve been itching to do the last few years. Lucky for me, I get to wear them on my fingers!
Even though I’m loving the little orange pumpkins on my tips, I had a less than perfect experience. From a distance I think they look great – but close up you can see the trouble I ran into. For more pictures and details about my experience, click below.
Otherwise, Happy Saturday – and may all of our East Coast friends stay dry and keep their power (I have my own fingers crossed for that one!).

The first thing I noticed was that the strips were very flimsy – not something I’ve ever noticed before and when I peeled off the backing they became wrinkly and slightly difficult to apply. Usually I can save the other half of the strip for my other hand – not true this time. You can see on one of my fingers where the black is stretched and the orange is starting to crack through and I have a partial fingerprint left on another finger.The strips were stuck to my fingers when I was applying them.
Now… on to my guesses as to why this happened. Maybe my hands were too warm? Though, I didn’t do anything different.They also spent some time in the mail from Alli’s house to mine, who knows what happened along the way.
Final Verdict: At the end of the day, I’m really too much of a perfectionist when it comes to my nails and no one but the most avid of polish lovers would notice these issues. They are very cute and perfect for Halloween.
