I did this mani in cottage country and only have natural daylight. I started early evening and it was still sunny but when I finished, the sun and daylight was fading fast so lighting wasn't the best and lots of shading in some pix.
Started with a base of two coats of L'Oreal Safari Chic, no topcoat.
As I mentioned at the start of the post, by the time I had done this mani, I had done two or three fall manis, all on creme bases (acknowledging I haven't shared them yet here). So I wanted to do something a little different. I had picked up a boxed set of full size Nails Inc. polishes recently at Winners (score at $9.99!) and in the set was Nails Inc. The Donmar which is a flaky. For little base interest, added it on top of Safari Chic.
Can I just say, why can't every pix be like this one...half in the sun and half in the shade! It was just a fluke; I doubt I could replicate it if I ever tried.
Stamped using assortment of images; Lesly LS-20 (thumb and pinky), Messy Mansion MM19 (index and middle), Chez Automne001 (ring), MoYou Landscape Collection-02 (accent leaves). For stamping, used Konad black special polish and assortment of Sally Hansen Insta-dri's.
Messy Mansion MM19
Gave the tree on the middle finger some fall leaves!
Top coated to finish.
This pix you can see the stamping best but unfortunately, full of fibres...story of my (stamping) life!
I really like the flaky interest on the thumb with the black contrast but too much going on with the coloured stamping even for my busy stamping style!
What do you think...and if you're not a fan of it, please let me know and no hard feelings.....I got big shoulders lol!
Thanks for looking!
P.S. Isn't this the worst picture ever? Looks like my nails are full of craters!
Bonus pix of my right hand which is slightly different.....not too shabby if you can overlook the dry cuticles!
