Today was a perfect fall day in Tokyo: crisp blue sky and brilliant foliage. It feels like September in New England, so it’s kind of weird to see all the Christmas stuff up. The weather says September but Christmas will be here in just a few short weeks.
So here’s my nail art tribute to a perfect fall day:
I used Orly Blue Collar, a sky-blue creme, for the background. The leaves are frankened from Color Club Explosive (neon pumpkin soup orange), creme red, China Glaze Prize Winning Mare, and metallic gold.
I put on the dots with a pointy Q-Tip and painted the leaves with a really small brush. These are painted tips, which is why my nails look so humongous.
This is the thumb. That thing on the left is supposed to be a rake, but it was really hard to get it right. Next to the rake is a pile of leaves. This took a pretty long time, about 30 minutes, which is why I only have one hand done in these photos! I think this would be a fun design for Thanksgiving. After Thanksgiving, I’ll start with the Christmas and holiday designs. Stay tuned!
