Tutorial: Autumn Leaves with Shinespark polishes + UberChic Beauty Lovely Leaves

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!


Okay, so. I'm not the best at live-action video tutorials, but I'm bound and determined not to give  up! Here is my most recent attempt, this one for an autumn leaves manicure...I think I'm getting better:





For this manicure, I started with a base of Spellbound Nails Milky Way for a nice, even base that would allow my holos to shine through. Then I used the smoosh technique (see video) to create a mix of Shinespark Polish Harvest, Evergreen, Pumpkin Spice, and Heart Of A Hero. Then I stamped over the smoosh mani with UberChic Beauty's Lovely Leaves plate:

I stamped with Messy Mansion Soft Gold; here's how it came out:

What do you think? This is one of my favorite manis I've done recently, maybe even this year. I love the firey leaves and it's so cool how the negative space image lets the holo just shine on through.


Happy fall, and happy stamping!

  2. Gorgeous mani! Is there a problem? I accessed your blog directly and through Bloglovin' and the video isn't there, just the word 'video'. I've never had an issue before with your videos.
