Last of the Fall Leaves

I'm stuck at home today; helping my husband troubleshoot our hot tub.  We went in it for the first time in months last weekend only to discover that one of the pumps that control the jets wasn't turning on.  So took the motor in for repair on Monday only to find out it was unrepairable and had to order a new one.  It arrived and the hubs installed it; now the motor won't turn off.  After doing some internet research, we think a relay now has to be installed; in the meanwhile, I'm stuck at home listening to him vent about it.  So I thought I'd work on getting a post up of nails I did back in the fall but didn't get to sharing.

This is a mani I did back in September when it seemed every day I was wearing leaves of some sort on my nails.  So I did some stamping over glitter to change it up a little.  I really liked the base and glitter, but not so much the stamping....anyway, started with a base of two coats of Sally Hansen Earl Gray, topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Added a layer of Shimmer Polish Alessandra**.  I love this glitter! Such an interesting colour combination of glitters that goes perfectly with so many base colours as well if you wanted to use it as a topper like I did here.  I really liked how the glitters gave an interesting pop of colour on top of the very neutral base!

In hindsight, I wish I had have left the nails like this, but decided to stamp.  Used images from MoYou Mother Nature Collection-07 and HB-21 Stamping polished used were Mundo de Unas in colours 9, 11, 32 and 48.

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.  

MoYou Mother Nature Collection-07

AT01; I didn't use this plate, I used HB21 but this plate has the same images except larger.

Comparison between HB-21 and AT-01.

Another size comparison.

I'm not sure what it is about this finished mani that I wasn't feeling; something to do with the stamping as I love the look of Shimmer Alessandra on top of the neutral base.  I definitely will be using Shimmer Alessandra again.

Shimmer Polishes are available here.  I seen on Shimmer Polish's FB site that they are having a Black Friday sale which ends today; the deal is buy 2 get 1 free; use code blackfriday.   

Hope you had a good weekend (better than me having to listen to the hubs grip all weekend); thanks for looking!
