Monday's Manicure: Green Fingers NOTD

Currently watching: Boardwalk Empire

Good morning lovely ladies,

I have yet another manicure featuring autumn leaves for you today.  I know I'm over-using my leaf stamp but I'm having trouble finding other suitable images for autumn.  Any ideas (note: Halloween manicures are not my style)?


 For this one, I used a much neglected Essence polish, Just in Case.  I bought this a few years ago but I rarely wear it as I find it a tricky shade to pull off.

 I then sponged Barry M Teal over my nails to add texture.

My next step was to stamp two leaves on each nail using Barry M Gold Foil and Red Angel plate RA 121.

What do you think girls?

Bye for now,

  1. I thinks it's so lovely and delicate, and the colors work perfectly together!

  2. I also think it looks great.
    What about some leaf coloured gradients in autumn colours? Would that work for you?

    1. Thanks! Gradients are a great idea, I'm just not very good at them :-( I should practice though

  3. So pretty!! I love the colour combo of the blue and silver looks wintry and perfect!

  4. Great color combo and the delicate leaves look great on it. You can make pumpkins, even if you don't like Halloween manicures, it don't have to look like one.

  5. Wow, I didn't think blue/teal could look so gorgeous with some leaves :D Unusual, but so pretty!!

    1. Thanks! Definitely need to give the leaf stamps a break though
