Nails: Autumn Leaves

Generally I'm not a fan of frost finish polishes but I thought the MUA Stormy Skies colour went well with the Autumn theme. I used Barry M's Mango and ELF's Fire Coral to create a gradient on my ring and thumb nail. Then I painted over the gradient with Sinful Colors' All About You, then finally stamped over with some leaves from Bundle Monsters BMH11.


Base Polishes:
MUA - Stormy Skies
Barry M - Mango
ELF - Fire Coral
Sinful Colors - All About You

Stamping Polish: MoYou Nails - Special Stamping Polish - Black
Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster H11

Nails: Top 5 Autumn / Fall Polishes 2014

I did a post like this one last year, you can see it here if you are interested. Now that it is officially Autumn I thought I would share my top five polishes for this season.

Barry M - Crush // Leighton Denny - Be Unique // ELF - Fire Coral // Barry M - Indigo // Miss Sporty - Rain Drop 470


First I have Barry M's Matte Crush, which is a deep burgundy matte shade which also looks great with a shiny topcoat over the top.


Then Leighton Denny's Be Unique which is a browny / rusty shimmer colour, you do need three coats to achieve opacity but it would also work layered over a red or an orange base.


ELF's Fire Coral, is a mid-orange cream polish which is perfect for Halloween nails and of course orange is a prominent colour in nature throughout autumn.


The deep purple is Barry M's Indigo, and is the perfect Cadbury purple. Very difficult to colour accurately photograph. The bottle shot and the photo of the skittle nails above aren't accurate, the photo below is much more true to life. It is a deep colour but not one which looks black and is easier to wear. I need to get a new bottle of this as I seem to be at the very end of this bottle.


Lastly I chose Miss Sporty's Rain Drop which is a dark green, something a little different from a pure black polish. Lovely and creamy and deep and the brush is quite flat and wide.

31 Day Challenge: New Technique

This is a new technique to me, it was done using a fan brush. A little bit messy but it seemed to blend the three colours quite well. I am sure with practice this could look so much better.

Base Polish: Sally Hansen - Dorien Grey
Rainbow Polishes: Eyeko - Saucy Polish, ELF - Fire Coral, Collection 2000 - Sherbet Lemon

Nail Polish: Battle of the Polishes - Neons

Not being too much of a fan of neons this round was quick and the winner easily decided on.

ELF - Yellow, Collection 2000 - Sherbert Lemon, Color Club - Almost Famous, Miss Sporty - 306, ELF -  Mango Madness, ELF - Fire Coral, Color Club - Wham Pow, Color Club - Poptastic, Color Club - Warhol, Color Club - Mrs Robinson, Color Club -  Twiggie, W7 - Fluroescent Green

I had to choose three and so easily ended up with the following:

Not being a fan of the neon, I didn't have much of an opinion. In the end Wham Pow won because Mrs Robinson needs multiple coats to reach the right opacity  Wham Pow is neon, can be a one coater and is incredible vibrant.
