Welcome to continuing our autumn collaboration with Verča from blog thebestsunriseofmylife.blogspot.com, if you have not seen the first part, you can have a look on it here. This time we used the classic autumn leaves and Verča created a very nice pattern of “fishtail”. Come and see what we needed for these creations so you could create them yourself at home.
My creation is both colorful and dark. I think I have captured exactly the atmosphere of autumn, sometimes it is grim and dark, which represents a brown base coat (Essence 45 yummiii!) with faded green leaves (a mixture of green and yellow polish). This pattern is from the BP-L079 plate and as the name suggests, I have it from Born Pretty. The polishes I stamped with are not stamping polishes, so I was quite surprised how well they came out on a brown background. Autumn may not always be sad and depressing, but remember the beautiful warm days when the weather is just for a short sleeve shirt, a gentle breeze swells, and the sun highlights all the colors that are full of nature. That’s exactly what I wanted to do on my fingernails with a colorful little mixture on my little finger, a middle finger and a thumb that is absolutely easy to create. Simply pour the selected polish onto the stamp and then tap the nail with a stamper. I like these nails more after some time. And what about you?
I need to say I was so surprised, we chose with Lucy the same polish as the base colour without any previous communication 😀 . As she said, it is Essence 45 yummiii! But I think, you can see it better on my nails. Without the matte top coat, it would be really warm chocolate brown with a little shimmer. This time, I did not complicate the design at all. It is just about stamping. I also used Born Pretty stamping plate but with code Floral BPX-L018.
Besides the brown Essence polish, my second base colour was golden OPI 50 years of style. This polish I also used for stamping over the brown. It is not supposed to be a stamping polish but as you can see, it has a good pigmentation. And it is a paradox it is more pigmented than Essence yummiii over the gold 😀 . The whole design I finished up with golden stripping tape and stud over 2 nails. This look is very decent and elegant. You can also wear it without the matte finish, but I think just with a matt topcoat it has this spirit of autumn.
Don’t forget to look also on Verča’s blog and read about her colourful motive 🙂 See you again in the next article.
