Step-by-Step Nail Art Thursday - Fall Leaf Manicure

Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovely readers! Happy Thursday and Happy Thanksgiving to my readers in the United States. Step-by-Step Nail Art Thursday is back with a Fall manicure.

The Base
For this Fall themed manicure, I chose two earthy shade: Fuzzy Sweater, a mustard yellow creme with multichrome flakies from Pretty & Polished and CoCo Berry, a deep brownish plum shade from Polish my Life.

The Accent Stamps
For the accent nails, I stamped using the Halloween-01 plate from UberChic Beauty, San Vicente nail polish by Cult Cosmetics (no longer in business), and a stamper from Fab Ur Nails. I filled in the stamped leaf images with a fine art brush using the flakie multichrome polish Supernova Holo by Starrily. I this polish because the flakies matched those in Fuzzy Sweater and I like bringing at least one element that will tie my manicure together.

I sealed my stamped images with a quick dry top coat and allowed it to dry completely before moving forward.

The Final Look
Once the nail polish dried completely, I finished off the look below by applying a coat of OPI's matte top coat.
