Oh, fall. It’s the perfect time to bring out all those toasty, golden colors that match the leaves outside. While most of the leaves are still green in NYC, I decided to get a jump start on the season with my nails.
For my base, I used a shimmery lemon shade from Julep called Nadia.
To create fall vibes, I used a fan brush to streak Pam from Julep (holographic orange) and Charge It! from Sephora by OPI (gold) across my nails. I used a slightly wavy motion to get a wind swept effect.
I used two plates from Bundle Monster (now called Maniology) to create the fall scene across my nails.
This scene looks like the park at sunset!
You may be wondering how I managed to fit so much of the tree/bench image onto my middle finger. That fingernail is only about half an inch long, yet the image was over a full inch tall! You may have heard of a shrinking image stamper set from Born Pretty or other similar nail art websites. While I don’t own the set, I do already have similar stampers. You can watch the video below to get a better sense of how the technique works and leave a comment on this post if you have questions.
The image gets flipped vertically in the process, but it’s a very cool technique!
Enjoy the season! Happy polishing!
