Nails: Autumnal Stamping

On Monday I shared some autumnal needle drag nails, I didn't like how they turned out and so added some stamping over the top, which I like much better.

Stamping Plate: Harunouta L071 (Layering Nature Design)

I got this stamping plate in June and thought I ought to share it.


The stamping plate comes with a blue protective layer on, and backed with hard white plastic.


On the plate itself there are 47 different images, they are designed to be used in a layering fashion to create more realistic images.


All of the images stamped across well, I want to use the tree branches to create seasonal tree type nail art. Below are some nails I have done with the stamping plate;

Review: Eylure Dybrow Dye Kit - Black

Since buying this in March I have used it a couple of times.

Review-Eylure-Dybrow-Dye-Kit-BlackThe kit comes with the activator and dye as well as a mixing pot, mixing stick and a small eyebrow brush.

My eyebrows before are a light to medium brown, I dye my hair black and prefer it when they match as when they are different colours it looks slightly off on me.

Once I have mixed the product I like to apply it with a thin eyebrow brush in order to get a precise application. I don't find the eyebrow spoolie which comes with it very accurate.

Straight after washing off the dye my skin behind my brows is stained a darker colour which I don't like on myself. However after showering and washing my face a couple of times the staining is gone and my brows are left a darker brown colour which I prefer. The dye fades over about a six week period.

I wouldn't describe it as being a black dye, more a dark brown. The kit also does come in a brown option.

Overall I didn't find the chemical odour to irritate my eyes, it didn't make my brows look drawn on after a couple of washes and it lasted relatively well. I would repurchase this in the future. The box says it lasts for up to 12 applications but I think will last for longer.

Nails: Autumnal Needle Drag

I saw some seasonal nail polish release colours and it inspired me to create a autumnal needle drag set of nails using polishes I already own. I hadn't thought it was three years since I last used the technique! [2016 Autumnal Needle Drag] I didn't really like these nails and so added some stamping later on.

Nails: Top 5 Autumn / Fall Polishes 2019

As autumn is almost upon us and so thought I would share my top five autumn / fall nail polishes.
I have done similar posts in 20182017201620152014, and 2013.

Laquerlicious - All Bundled Up // OPI - In The Cable Car Pool Lane // Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Black // OPI - Rub A Pub Pub // Essie - Angora Cardi

Laquerlicious - All Bundled Up | I chose this as it is a deep blue glitter, it is dark but not so dark it just looks black and the glitter just adds a bit of something to it.

OPI - In The Cable Car Pool Lane | Would it be autumn without a berry shade polish? This is a nice berry cream.

Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Black | I prefer this over a black base, it is a flakie topper which has autumnal oranges and greens in it.

OPI - Rub A Pub Pub | A new addition to my collection from the Scotland 2019 range. This is a slate grey cream which is dark and moody but without it just looking plain black.

Essie - Angora Cardi | This is a dusty pink cream, its a great base for a wooly jumper / sweater type nail art.
