Sadly Summer is coming to an end. even though to be honest im quite looking forward to Autumn; the rusty coloured leaves, the musky weather in the mornings, and of course, the lack of wasps!! Its still a shame to say goodbye to the minimal good weather we have had in the summer. so with that said here is a tutorial on autumn/fall inspired nails. I hope you enjoy. Please tweet pics if you have a go 🙂
I started with 2 coats of this Orly polish in the colour Ruby
Next I used a nail art pen and swept it across my nails, from the top corner diagonally. Except for my thumb and ring finger where I went from bottom to top.
Using a gold nail varnish I made sure any excess was removed from the brush and dabbed the very tip at the end of my green lines.
Using an orange nail art pen, I gently dabbed the brush to create petal like shapes around the gold. (this doesn’t need to be perfect)
I did the same as above with a yellow nail art pen
next I went over the yellow with orange again very finely, followed by red in the center.
Using a darker green and the same method as drawing the petals, I created the look of leaves on the stem.
To finish the look off completely I used Avon 24k gold strength polish because the slight gold shimmer brought all the colours together.
Here’s the finished look, teamed with some dark lipstick (I’m wearing Avon – divine wine) and your favorite scarf your set for autumn/fall in style 🙂
