I’m pretty happy with how many fall looks vs Halloween that I’ve managed to paint this year. I love fall and I’m always missing out on painting more looks for it because I get focused and then burnt out on Halloween. So November tends to be a light nail art-ing month and September doesn’t get much attention either for some reason. Yet even this October I am managing to fit in these changing leaves that benefits so wonderfully from the a gorgeous thermal polish. Perhaps it is fall’s year with me!
Also on view today: my brain’s insistence on matching things. I couldn’t use just any leaves in this mani. Only oak leaves. And not just any oak leaves. Oak leaves that have the same basic shape. This is why I buy so many stamping plates.
Mostly it’s greed though.

Granted if you don’t want to mess with thermals, you can easily achieve this look with a gradient instead. But watching the colors change as different areas on the nails cool and heat is just…extra yummy and fall-feeling. Also, I cannot recommend enough: finding a good fall polish with some magenta shimmer. Or a topper of magenta shimmer that you can spice up your regular polishes with. Sometimes I feel like I get a little too focused on purple and blue shimmer, but I look better in fall colors and that magenta is just…gorgeous! Loooook at it….

This thermal polish is so pretty, I just had to throw in an extra large macro shot. Fall in a bottle.
Until next time, friends! 🙋♀️
