I started with two coats of Manhattan 006 (Marcel Ostertag Collection), a milk chocolate colored creme. The color is a smite cooler than my picture shows.
The I added one coat of Gitly Bits Crunchy Leaves, a clear base filled with lots (and I mean LOTS) of small dark orange glitters (hexes and bars). Crunchy Leaves can be worn alone with three coats, but layering it over a brown gives it even more fall-y look (in my eyes at least).
Then I used a England Holy Grail, a slightly green toned gold foil, and DRK-C plate to add a stamping with autumn leaves. As you can see, the golden specks are visible, but the motive... not so much.
Then I added one coat of H&M Matte Topcoat to make the stamping more visible. Didn't help much, though... But I still like the color combo, even if the stamping isn't really recognizable as one ;-)

Gorgeous! I love these bronze and copper shades, the glitter is so pretty. I really like this look both glossy and matte :)ReplyDelete
I'm glad you like it, Nati! And a dash of color is just perfect with this grey, foggy weather, isn't it ;-)Delete
I really love it *_*ReplyDelete
This is fall! So to speak :> :o
Thank you so much <3Delete
Woah, that looks great, very special. And it just ooooooooooozes autumn.ReplyDelete
Well, at least autumn how I like it, sunny and colorful :-) All we seem to get at the moment is grey, foggy cold...Delete
Wow, das sieht ja hammer aus! Die Blätter...wie Camouflage.ReplyDelete
Vielen Dank, Wiebke! Wir Schweizer nennen den Herbst-Tarnanzug ja "Vierfruchtpyjama" ;-)Delete
I have to admit this is my favorite of the manis you showed this week! It looks like the sun would reflect in a heap of colored leaves - just perrrrrrfect xxxReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Christine! When nature denies us sun and colored leaves this week, we have to provide it ourselves with the help of some nailpolish ;-)Delete
You nailed it this Fall lookReplyDelete
Thank you for your kind words!Delete
Wunderschön! Erinnert mich ja irgendwie an einen großen Haufen Blätter. :D Wenn die Blätter hier nur mal rot würden und nicht immer schon gelb zu Boden gingen... :PReplyDelete
Ich bin am Donnerstag und gestern jeweils durch halb Deutschland mit der Bahn gefahren (Basel bis Bonn und zurück), und da sah es doch ganz schön aus, vor allem die Hügel entlang des Rheins waren sehr schön eingefärbt :-)Delete
