Today’s the first day of the Challenge Your Nail Art group’s Fall-ing For Nail Art Challenge! The prompt for today is “fall leaves + trees” and I’ll be honest, I’m totally dissatisfied with what I came up with. Let me tell you my inspiration first:
Fall in Montana is spectacular (when we actually get one!): there’s impossibly blue sky; the golden, amber, purple, and brown leaves; and just enough bite in the air. I really was going for a look of walking through a park that has the ground blanketed with leaves and the trees are bare.
I used Mentality Gumdrop as my base; for the “carpet” I used Mentality Wangari (Matte), with Cotton Candy, Tempest, and Educate sponged on top. Educate was also used for the bare trees. Lastly, I topped it off with good ole Seche Vite (press sample).
Well, it’s not my best work, and I definitely can’t wait to see what everyone else has come up with:
Let me know what your thoughts on this are, and I’ll see you tomorrow for fall foods!
