Another day of #CBBOctNails nail art prompts! Day three of the challenge is fall and this is one I wore for several days and did not want to remove.
I started with Essence Wild White Ways as a base. I tried a sunset gradient but the leaves did not show as well against it, so white it is. Over that, I stamped a tree using Zoya Edyta and a Shany Image Plate. The image plate contains some dots that I left with Edyta as I could not be bothered filling them in individually and it gave the leaves some depth.
Once my stamp had dried, I dry brushed Zoya Beatrix over the top. Beatrix is an orange PixieDust so it also gave the leaves some texture.
For those who want a fall tree look but do not have stamps, I also did a freehand version using just a brush and a dotting tool. This one is definitely more colourful and lots of people commented on it.
I may have gone a little crazy with the polishes on this one. Essence Wild White Ways, Hello Sweetheart Effect Coat & Nude Sweet Nude, Sinful Colors in a yellow that seems to have lost its name and Zoya in Edyta, Blaze and Beatrix.
I started with a white base, then drew the trees using Edyta, as with my stamp version. Edyta is a dark green, gold almost black colour that honestly looks different every time I use it. Zoya describes it as complex mixture of gold, olive, blue-
Topped with Essie GelSetter for some shine and to protect the dots and there it is, my two fall nail art looks.
