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;

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.

Stamping Plate: Born Pretty Store - Halloween L008 [#47278]*

Today I have a Halloween themed stamping plate to share with you from Born Pretty Store.

Review-Stamping-Plate-Born-Pretty-Store-Halloween-L008-#47278

Born Pretty Halloween L008 is a rectangle stamping plate with three full nail images and many smaller images. It comes in a cardboard sleeve, hard plastic backed and with a protective blue film over. The theme for the plate is as the name suggests based around Halloween, skulls, skeletons and spiders.

All of the images stamped across well. There are a lot of season appropriate images on the plate. I think the dotted gradient and the stars are something you could use all year long. Although that isn't to say I won't be using the spider webs in April!

Below are some nails I have done using the plate;
