October is here, the leaves on the trees are changing colour, nights are rapidly drawing in, the clocks will soon go back and summer is now certainly a distant memory. With that in mind I wanted to use colours that have a strong Autumn vibe to them.
Here I have combined two polishes for each nail. We have:
Yellow: Potion Polish – Marvelous Maple Topped with il etait un vernis – Hello Sunshine
Purple: Leighton Denny ‘Raspberry Afair’ Topped with Tonic ‘The Answer is 42’
Blue/Green: Nails Inc ‘Gosfield Street’ Topped with ILNP ‘Interstellar’
Red: Nails Inc ‘Saville Row’ Topped with ‘New Burlington Place’
I recently saw a version of this manicure on Instagram @luciadoesnails, I asked if she would mind if I did something similar and she was happy for me to do so.
I used Kiss Short Oval press on nails with a Base Colour of Essie ‘Ballet Slippers’. I then handpainted the following: Dark Pink – Nails Inc ‘Sloane Street’, Medium Pink – Nails Inc ‘Brompton Place’ & Baby Pink – Nails Inc ‘Totes Pink’ all finished off with my trusty Seche Vite.
Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted, I have been without my laptop since 22nd October and basically had a nightmare having it repaired but I am back now to show you a few of the themed manis which I created over this time – the others can wait until further posts.
Here I have my Breast Cancer Awareness month, Halloween, Fireworks and my Remembrance Poppy nails.
