The newer nail polish collections feature dark shades, glitters and shimmers so I decided to rummage a bit in my nail polish stash and found these pretty shades.
I mixed in a little bit of glittery embellishments with nail stamping and there you have it - a jewel toned fall manicure with stunning metallic accents that borders on something so festive it might smell a bit of the first snowfall.
I love making gradients, although I hate the clean up! Looks like these are more and more difficult for me to attempt.
Dark colors - especially the blue shades are notorious to dye your skin and nails - so there is some danger when making dark colored gradients! So ladies be careful when you play with darker shades, or your nails and cuticles will be stained for weeks.
WHAT I USED:
To create this gradient, I used Catrice Inner Purple of Trust, Mint Me Up and Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans (in the order from cuticle to tip of the nail).
The stamp is made with Color Club Gingerbread Man and Uber Chic Beauty 8-03 stamping plate.
Hope this inspires you to create some festive nail art for the fall season ahead!
