Fall Into Autumn Challenge! 6 - Autumn Leaves

So here are my Autumn Leaves for week 6. I love watching the leaves fall off the trees. We have a lot of pine trees so it's always green. Today has been pretty windy so the leaves are flying around everywhere. It's so pretty except when they cover my yard. Anyways, back on subject...


I applied 2 coats of Elf Nude and one coat of Pretty & Polished Phoenix. I really like Phoenix. To me, it is perfect for fall with the yellow and red glitters.

Then I grabbed my WnW Black Creme polish and my Red Angel RA-121 and RA-104 plates. I stamped leaves all over my nails. To finish it off, I used a small nail brush and Butter London Wallis to add dimension to the leaves. I think it turned out great. I really wanted to make dark brown leaves but all of my dark brown polishes were too thin to really stamp well.

 Here is a close-up of my thumb so you can see my leaves better.

Shortly after taking pics of my mani, my nail broke on my ring finger. I had to chop all of my nails because the same thing happened on my other hand last week. So I have super short nails to deal with for a while.

  1. Gorgeous! When I saw the thumbnail, I already liked it a lot - but seeing it in all its glory... I think you got the perfect fall colors here. I hope my mani will turn out this pretty :]

    1. Thank you Johanna! I was actually worried the black leaves were too harsh... even with the BL Wallis added. I can't wait to see what you come up with :)

    2. I don't think the black is too harsh at all. It's like when you watch leaves looking against the sun. :D

    1. Thanks Sharra! Can't wait to see your take on this mani. Hopefully next week won't need much detail with my recently acquired short nails.
