Nail Art: Autumn

This is another nail art I wore last week that I wasn't able to post because of my busy schedule. I meant to submit this as an entry to a nail art challenge but I failed to submit it before the deadline simply because I forgot. The challenge was to create a nail design that is autumn inspired.

Nail Art Autumn 06
Fallen leaves for this autumn inspired nail art.

This is how the base color looks bare:

Nail Art Autumn 01
This is 2 coats of Essie Playa Del Platinum. Application was quite tricky because streaks from the brush strokes were hard to eliminate. Applying top coat fixed it.

I wanted to play with colors with this nail art so I experimented a little with autumn colors. I first stamped leaves with an orange shade.

Nail Art Autumn 02
I used OPI Chop-Sticking To My Story for stamping and it turned out quite opaque. I'm happy with the result. I found another polish good for stamping!

Next, I added yellow shade leaves.

Nail Art Autumn 03
I used OPI Bling Dynasty for stamping and again, it turned out quite opaque with the base color. I allowed the stamping to overlap to get a collage effect.

Brown shade leaves was next in line.

Nail Art Autumn 04
I used Dashing Diva East Village for stamping. It's not so opaque as I expected but it was enough for me to add a brown color to this nail art.

Finally, I wanted something green.

Nail Art Autumn 05
I used Dashing Diva Rosario Pistacio for stamping and opacity was good.

Images from Bundle Monster BM04 and BM05 were used for stamping.
