Welcoming the season of Fall!

I'm here today with some gradients and some freehand leaves to celebrate the upcoming Fall season. However, I'm in Texas. So it feels like Fall cause all I'm used to is hot, sweat inducing weather. Funny that I mention that.. Because the weather is gonna heat up by the weekend. So it's gonna be more Summer again than Fall weather.

I didn't take a picture of my right hand, but it actually turned out really nice. So for those wondering, this is a design possible for both hands! All you need is a steady hand and patience. It didn't turn out perfect though, I mean, the stems were a little thick and wobbly but other than that the leaves turned out great. :D

You'll have to pardon the fact that in the close up, I have kitty fur and lint on my fingers. I pet my kitty cat before the pictures and wiped my hands off best I could.. But that stuff STAYS where it wants. :(

For this mani I used:

  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Butter London 'Pink Ribbon'
  • Orly 'It's Up to Blue'
  • Orly 'Liquid Vinyl'
  • Wet n' Wild 'Mauve Frost'
  • Stripe Rite White and Gold
  • Seche` Vite
