NOTD: Pumpkin Spice by Sally Hansen

Pumpkin Spice is by Sally Hansen and is one of two Halloween polishes that I own, although technically I don't think it was marketed as a Halloween polish.  I saw swatches of it last year, when it was released, and was fortunate enough to find one lone bottle at Rite Aid long after Halloween had passed.
Now, I use the word "pumpkin" in my vocabulary year round and quite often.  I use it as a term of endearment for my dogs, as in "hey pumpkin" or "come on pumpkin heads".  So, I should probably not reserve this polish only for Halloween and break it out more than once a year. 
This dark gray jelly with orange glitter definitely does evoke Halloween, but it's also perfect for fall in general.  It's burnished, glowing, and spicy!  It took 4 coats to get it to that point as, like most jellies, it's very sheer.  Application was painless, however, and it doesn't feel or look thick.  I topped with one coat of Seche Vite.
Disclosure:  I purchased this.
