Right now I’m spending a good chunk of my free time raking up all of the leaves in our yard, so it seems like the appropriate time to sport some leafy nails. Here they are:
I just can’t make my right hand pose nicely. It’s all awkward or something. Anyway, the base for these nails is NYC – Royal Chic. I sort of think this is from a collection that was out not that long ago, so it might be a little hard to find now.
The wet polish looks just like Hershey’s Syrup. I feel like this polish should smell like chocolate.
Then I added some leaves with Wet n WIld Fergie – Gold Album. Every time I use that polish I can’t believe how beautifully gold and sparkly it is.
I was sort of tempted to just “leaf” my mani like that, but since I had already pulled all of my fall colored polishes off my rack, I decided to go ahead and add some color. I used polishes that tend to to be sheer so that the gold would show through. I just used a little brush and added a little bit of color to each leaf. I topped it off with a shiny top coat.
After four days of wear, I had no major chips, just some tip wear. I touched up the tips of my nails with the brown polish and then for kicks I added a matte top coat.
I really like how this looks with a matte top coat! The metallic leaves just really pop off of the brown background! I think I’m going to get a full week’s wear out of these. Hooray for that!
Thanks for reading!
