Last Fall Mani of the Year...?

Hey, everyone!

Yes, the weather is changing enough that I think this might be my last Fall-type manicure of the year. Keep reading to find out why!

The weather lately has been incredibly rainy - which is great news for Northern California, but not so much for crunchy leaves! So as much as I love the colors of Fall, I think I'm done being inspired by them for the year. Sadness... but the holidays are upon us anyway so on to a new color palette after this post!

For this look I started with two coats of OPI German-icure on all fingers but my ring finger and thumb, on which I used two coats of China Glaze Cross Iron 360. Then I dry brushed a slight gradient onto my ring finger and thumb using German-icure. When those were all dry, I did a coat of Essie Shine of the Times. Over the darker color, it looked like crunched up leafy bits, so it was perfect! Then I used Cross Iron 360 and German-icure to do a few leaves on my ring finger and thumb, then top coat and DONE! quick and easy!

Materials Used
China Glaze Cross Iron 360
OPI German-icure
Essie Shine of the Times
