A quick and easy nail art design for you this week. I’m short on time, but ready for Autumn! I think this is my favourite orange polish (out of the 20+ I own), and although I’m not quite ready for Halloween nails, I’m on board with Fall nail art.
Polishes and tools
Although I’ve read warnings about using Nailtiques too much, and it making your nails brittle, I’m going to stick with it. The peeling has stopped and my nails are a decent length again.
I tried stopping and it was a disaster, despite it being summer when my nails are normally longer and stronger. Never again!
After that as my base, I just needed two coats of Autumn. I might use three if I’m not doing anything else, just to make sure the coverage is perfectly even.
If you have short nails, two is fine. I find that my nails are quite transparent where my free edge starts. If I can hold my hands up and see light through there, I need another coat!
After a coat of Seche Vite, I went straight on to stamping. Kismet is one of my favourite Color Club Halo Hues to stamp with, it’s a green-shot gold holographic polish.
I stamped the image all in the same orientation, so all my nails look the same. If I’d had more time, I would have double stamped some leaf outlines over the top in black.
After some quick cleanup, and another coat of Seche Vite, I am all finished.
