Before & After (& After): Leafy Leafy Leafy!


Today I'm going to take a break from Halloween, and show you a fall manicure. Sadly, Halloween still managed to seep out of my subconscious, because I'm holding a bottle of Halloween glitter in my hand instead of the actual glitter that I used! I didn't realize it until it was too late...::sighs::

I started off with a base coat of Barielle Lily Of The Valley, a very pretty grass-green polish which I wore for a day (and forgot to take a picture of--yep, I'm really on top of things in this post!). Then I put a coat of Hit Polish Autumn Harvest over it:

Barielle Lily Of The Valley with Hit Polish Autumn Harvest (pay no attention to that bottle)

Okay, fine, that bottle contains Hit Polish Halloween, if you like it and want to know...:)

I love the colors in Autumn Harvest, they remind me of the changing . This is a clear-based glitter, but I don't think I'd classify it as a 'glitter bomb'--it's clearly meant to be layered over another polish, and the mix of colors and sizes of glitter makes it a solid, pleasant fall go-to glitter for me. :)

For my third day wearing it, I wanted to stamp over it in a way that picked up on the fall theme:

I used Magno Nails Plate O (which I will be reviewing for you soon!), and Pure Ice Silver Mercedes.

I wish I'd taken a picture from farther away because while it looks a bit busy in this picture, it actually looks very nice when you see it on the whole hand--it blends a bit. Regardless, I really like the colors together, and  love the fall feel of it. :)

Thanks for looking!

  2. I love it! So cool!
    Stamping over glitter gives such a cool effect

  3. Very nice. I wish I could wear a mani for longer than a day without it chipping to pieces.

    1. It helps if you keep putting stuff over it, lol! :)


Make my day--leave me a comment!
