Fall Foliage

Here's a quick Fall themed mani I did a few weeks back for a contest in one of the Facebook groups I belong to.  I started with 3 thin coats of DIFFERENT dimension It Rubs the Lotion On Its Skin.  On top of that I stamped the leaves pattern from Bundle Monster plate BM-H11.

For the leaves, I used Konad Special Polishes in yellow, orange and red.  I dotted a little bit of each Konad polish in a column along the side of the design, then scraped across to create a gradient.  After stamping each nail, I finished the look off with one coat of Seche Vite top coat.

The stamping ended up being a bit more subtle than I had anticipated.  The red is especially harder to see compared to the orange and yellow.  The red Konad stamping polish works really well, but it does have more of a jelly finish to it rather than being an opaque cream, so that made it harder to see over such a dark base color.  But I was still very happy with the end result, and I thought the colors worked really well together, perfect for Fall.

  1. This is beautiful and well thought. I love how the stamping is fading towards the nail tip
