The One With the Fall Leaves

9:00:00 AM

Saturday.  It is here!  A day of sleeping in, Pinterest projects, nail painting, and hopefully NO WORK.  I just came off of a six day stretch, where most of the nights I worked until after 6:00pm.  I'm quite tired and cannot wait to just do what I want to do.  I need to go to the store and get some apples so I can make some apple pies.....or apple crisp....oooo or that apple pie cake!

As you can tell, Fall is here and I'm happier than ever with it.  You know this is my favorite season of all, especially because the colors on the trees are finally changing.  Everything is starting to turn so by next weekend we should be fully peaked and it will be even more gorgeous than it already is.  Therefore, I thought it was perfect timing to paint some leaves on my nails.

For years I have tried to recreate this leaf design.  Each year it's been an utter fail.  After seeing it again on Instagram, I decided it was time to give it another chance and see if I could actually get the design to look how I want it to.

Let's see how it turned out!

Colors Used:
  • INM - Acai
  • Zoya - Tomoko
  • Acrylics
It was not a fail this year!!!!  Cannot believe I was actually able to do this!!!  Look at my leaves!!!  To get the look I started off with a base coat of INM Acai.  This polish is quite gorgeous - it's a dark brown/red polish.  I used it a year or so ago and was in love with it.  It's such a perfect fall color, and is the perfect base for this manicure.  Especially when I added the sparkly tips by sponging on Zoya Tomoko.

Once the base and sparkles were dried, I got to work with my acrylics.  Layering, shading, and painting a little more, and I got some really pretty leaves on my nails.

What do you think?  Like this look?  Think I did a good job??

Until next time, <3.
