First of the Fall Mani's!

Somehow, I missed that yesterday was the official start of fall so I'm a little behind in sharing this mani.  It has a lot going on; double stamping, shadow stamping, painted by hand and extra dots and busy; you know I like those busy nails and this is no exception!  Here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of two coats of Essie Check Your Baggage, no top coat.

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Using MdU 9, 46, 66 and 107, stamped images from UC Lovely Leaves (thumb), Maniology M022 (middle) and UC Lovely Leaves 02 (index, ring and pinky).

Using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief, did layered stamping using same images on the ring, middle and pinky and shadow stamped on the ring.  Added more leaves using same MdU polishes and PP Midnight Mishief on the thumb, as well as hand painted some lines in the trunk on the thumb.  Also, the ash (I think they are ash) leaves on the index and ring were big blobs of black from the second stamping on them, so I used the same polishes to give them some colour, then hand painted in some leaf veins.  Finally, added a few black dots on all fingers just to tie everything together.

I did a final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish but the polish smear was soooo bad, I cringed looking at the pix and couldn't force myself to share.  But this looks cool; as if they have a coat of matte top coat on them.  

Thanks for looking and I hope you're ready for the deluge of fall manis as I've been doing them for a few weeks now.  I will probably run out of time before I get them all posted with Halloween around the corner but hopefully I'll get a few shared before snowfall!
