Glittery Autumn Leaf Nail Art

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Here's my fourth manicure for this month's inspired by a tutorial theme that I've been participating in for The Nail Challenge Collaborative. This design was inspired by JauntyJuli from her video tutorial, 1MNT: Glittery Autumn Leaf Nail Art. I just love the mix of fall colors with the glittery gold base underneath when I first saw her tutorial, so I knew I had to recreate it.

Sephora by OPI, OPI, Seche Vite

I started with Sephora by OPI Worth My Weight. Taking stripping tape, I created a leaf design. I painted the leaf two colors on each nail alternating between OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down The Window, OPI From A to Z-urich, and OPI Jade is the New Black. Quickly, I peeled off the stripping tape to reveal the leaf design. Finished with a coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

I love how this looks! I've been really liking the effect stripping tape can do for me in terms of what nail art designs I can create. What do you think of this glittery autumn leaf manicure?
