Nail art │ Autumn Leaves nail design [Nail crazies Unite]


Hello, lovelies!  Happy Friday :D
I'm starting a new nail art challenge today with the Facebook group Nail Crazies Unite! This challenge already started last week, but I couldn't participate for the first prompt. It will run every two weeks for one year. I really hope I will be able to complete it. For this week the prompt is Fall foliage, which I really enjoyed, as (I've said 20 million times) the Fall colours really inspire me.
Enough about that, let's get into NAILS! a new nail art design is awaiting for you 😊


For today's manicure I was sure I wanted to do some stamping decals with custom coloured leaves. What I wasn't very sure was which colour I should use as a base. After hesitating a lot, I decided to use a multichrome by Dance Legend called #094 "Boo" which is gorgeous on itself, and very fall appropriate, but it prevents to see the decals clearly. The result is a quite homogeneous manicure, without strong contrasts.





How to

I started painting two coats of Dance legend Boo. I then made some stamping decals using Moyou Black Knight stamping polish and Moyou London Mother Nature Collection 07 stamping plate, which is a plate with mainly tree leaves and vines. I coloured in the leaves using a dotting tool and the following nail polishes: Essie playing koi, Zoya Shawn and OPI Fiercely Fiona. I cut off and placed the decals on the nails and sealed them with a topcoat.


Stamping decals is a time-consuming technique but in it is not very complicated in itself and the results are super gorgeous.

I hope you have liked this nail design, I've surely enjoyed doing it. Please, don't forget to pay a visit to the other participants listed down below.

Have a great weekend!
Love,

Nati
