Living life without my camera meant that I was pretty lazy with my nails but here is one design I did that I really fell in love with and it was so simple to do!
Snapped in the gloomy light of day in my garden dripping my lovely hand knitted arm warmers I have OPI Every Month is Ocktoberfest as my base once this was nearly dry I grabbed some of my rainbow holo foil and went for the autumn green-yellow-orange portion and dabbed it on (for lack of a better verb). Just really made me think of crunchy leaves.
Topcoat did slightly crinkle the foil but in this case it just added to the effect. It’s not clear from the pictures but Ocktoberfest is a purple base with burgundy subtle shimmer; I didn’t think to take swatch pictures because I didn’t do this mani with blogging in mind. For me, this is a cult classic polish, especially for the autumn time – if you have chance to try this out definitely do!
I used the flash for this picture to show you the holo sparkle which really adds some dimension. I am feeling some serious foil love right now and I think this could make a really interesting base for further nail art on top and I am also thinking for bonfire night/and time with fireworks this could really create some beautiful manis. I have seen stamping designs foiled but I have never tried it myself. The thing with foils is catching your polish at the right dryness/tackiness unless you’re using nail foil glue (alas something I don’t have).
What do you think?
