Autumn - love it or leaf it

Friday, October 3, 2014


Autumn is here! Boots, sweaters, scarves... they are so much fun to wear. So to celebrate the changing of the seasons, I had to try and recreate the sparkling, crisp colors on the trees with some nail art.

 The Aspen trees in my front yard are starting to change colors. Vivid red, yellow and orange shades grace the quaking trees. Tidbit - Did you know that researchers claim that an Aspen Grove is the largest living organism on the planet? Aspen trees, or aspen clones, are connected to each other underground and aboveground – creating a large biomass. OK, enough of science class... Let's get to the nail art.

For this nail art, I used OPI nail polish, I started with a base color of "Don't Bossa Nova Me Around" and added a coat of "Ski Slope Sweetie" for a shimmery canvas. Then I added splotches of A Woman's Prague-ative," in a rough circular area at the top of each nail. I added small dabs of autumn colors using "DS Indulgence," "DS Luxurious," and "I Just Can't Cope-acabana."

You can use just about any colors you want. You just want the shades to mingle together to form an abstract show of leaves.

I used brown acrylic paint for the tree trunks and branches. Then I added some very fine loose gold holographic glitter to the leaf areas of the trees. It seems to give it an extra boost of dimension.

I topped it off with a coat of HK Girl. I am pleased with the results. You just can't really go wrong with anything abstract.

Are you sporting autumn colors on your nails?

These polishes were purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
