The Nail Art Squad - Fall Decor

Greetings and Nailutations,

Today I participated in a collaboration with some talented women organized by Sarah of 25 Sweet Peas.  Our prompt was Fall Decor and I am summoning all the Autumn vibes I can with this mani to get it to cool down here.  It is the middle/end of October and today (Monday the 23rd) it is supposed to be 97 F (36.1 C)!  I mean come on Mother Nature - WHY!?  I'll stop whining now and share with you the collaboration photo!

Now let's get to my mani details!

Products used:
Pug Posse Nail Lacquer - Cinnamon Cider (press sample)
Bluebird Lacquer - Ambrocombie and Fitch, Advanced Algebrah, Language and Cultural Anthbrology (press samples)
Messy Mansion - MM Crystal 02 Plate (press sample - affiliate link to Lantern and Wren)
Vino Vinyls - Leaf Vinyls
Ever After - Black Magic
Clear Jelly Stamper - Big Bling Stamper (press sample)
Glisten and Glow - Top Coat

This mani took quite a few steps, I started with Cinnamon Cider (2 coats) and top coated it.  Once that was dry, I used the Leaf Vinyles and created a gradient using the Bluebird Lacquer polishes.  I added another top coat to that and below is what I got.

I knew I wanted to add more...I mean, if you are going to make a Fall mani and it's 97 degrees, I figured I would go big or go home.  I used the MM Crystal 02 Plate to spell out F A L L with Black Magic.  And then added another top coat.  I was pleased with the final "Autumn in your face" mani!

Are you feeling Fall/Autumn weather where you are?  Would it be ok if I sent 5-10 degrees your way?  Let me know!

Wait!  Did you want to see these created in a tutorial?  You are in luck - Check out my YouTube Channel (subscribe and thumbs up while you are there too!).

Happy Polishing,

  1. This is too cute! The gradient leaves are just perfect. Autumn finally decided to show up today. We went from 85+ degrees to 50 and raining back in September. I was seriously starting to wonder if we were going to have an Autumn this year.

  2. How cute how you embellished this. We have true fall weather here with cool temps, gloomy rain, and beautiful trees changing into these colors.

  3. I love the phases pics of this mani!! So pretty! Oh and I totally hear ya, I think it was 91 today! Ekk, but it’s supposed to get to 70 as a high and 50s as our lows so we will see!

  4. It's raining non stop in Hawaii, bed weather but not fall-ish lol
