So we have started a new challenge today called the ABC of Nails. We will be going through the alphabet one week at a time! Each week we will post a manicure that contains something from the letter of the week. It can be a polish name, a polish brand, an item on your nails, or even a technique. These posts will come to you on Wednesdays!
Obviously to begin with we are starting with A. I wanted to do something different, but had a hard time coming up with something. The weather here yesterday was so beautiful.....almost fall like, so I decided to do an 'A'utumn manicure. I love Autumn, don't you? The smell of pumkin spice, crisp leaves, apple cider. The sound of rustling leaves and kids playing outside. Even the gorgeous colors of Autumn. They have to be some of my favorite color combinations. Russet oranges, dark reds, golden browns, and coppery colors. I recently purchased an indie polish from Hit Polish called Autumn Harvest which is a gorgeous combination of sparkly fall colors. I used this over gold and then did a gradient using some colors found in the polish with a leaf stamp on top. I really like this gradient and I think it looks just beautiful next to Autumn Harvest and the gold stamp! I am so glad I get to keep this on for a couple of days!! Doesn't it make you want to take a walk in the brisk fall air and step on lots of leaves :-)
