Happy Monday! It’s still weekend here for us so I am basically still relaxing. These long weekends tend to feel super long towards the end but then when it is over you feel like you need a weekend to recover from the laziness. How has your weekend been? Did you do anything special for easter?
Time for another week of #52weeknailchallenge hosted by Polish Portfolio. As always, you can follow this # to see what other people are creating and you can find the list of prompts for this year below.
I love autumn. It’s one of my favourite seasons. I always associate the orange, brown, red colours to autumn nails but I wonder if it is because of the thanksgiving colours. Obviously, here we are the opposite way around and our autumn falls closer to easter than thanksgiving. I admit it would be weird to associate pastel shades with autumn but either way, I stuck to the more traditional autumn shades. Let me show you what I did.
On my index and middle nail I started with 1 coat of China Glaze – Time me s’more and left that to dry completely. On my ring and pinky I used 3 coats of Dollish Polish – I volunteer as tribute. Once it was all dry I did a sponged gradient on my index and middle finger using China Glaze – Sunset seeker and China Glaze – Give me s’more. Once the gradient was dry, I stamped over it using BM-H11 and first, Mundo de Unas – Caramel and then Mundo de Unas – Gold. I topcoated everything and voila!
I used I volunteer as tribute with the gradient because the colours are so autumny and I just love the glitters in the black jelly base. It is such a gorgeous polish and my intention was for it to pick up the colours in the gradient and stamping. I’m not sure if this works or all comes together but I sure do like the colours and the reason. What do you think? Does it work? What is your favourite season?
