Welcome back to Digit-al Dozen week! This weeks theme is inspired by Pinterest or magazine covers; probably one of the hardest challenges for me so far! I only use Pinterest to pin my manis and recipes; I don't browse it for ideas and had no idea what to search for inspiration, etc. so had a hard time finding things to inspire me. But I did come across a few things that I can tie a mani into; this is Day 1 being fall leaves.

Started with a base of two coats of Revlon Hot Chocolate; this is no top coat.
Added a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.
In the shade...dark and moody!
I had found craft punches at the dollar store; I wasn't sure which colours I'd be using so did a bunch of polish swatches on tape and masking tape; the tape backing makes them a little sturdier when using the punch.
The polishes I ended up using were, starting at thumb, are Pebble Beach Topez Step, Nabi Metallic Red Wine, Pebble Beach Fire Opal Step, Pebble Beach Topez Step and SpaRitual Electrum. I really loved the look of these Pebble Beach polishes; I had found them at random dollar store a couple years ago, only paid a dollar or so each for them and they turned out to be diamonds in the rough as the texture was very cool! These have been applied and topped with topcoat.
By far my favourite finger was the thumb; the colours went together really well and it laid down nicely on the nail.
I did the right hand a little different; instead of applying the punched out leaf piece on the nail, I punched out the shape using the punch, then applied the tape with the image void directly on the nail, then polished it over like you would with a nail vinyl; application was so much better and I will probably do it like this from now on lol!
Here's the other ladies Day 1 Pinterest inspired mani's!
Thanks for looking!
