Crunchy leaves! I love the colors the leaves change to in the Fall. I remember collecting them from the ground when I was a kid. I would take them to my mother and she would press them between waxed paper and iron it. That was I could keep my leaves.
Autumn is my favorite season. I love the way the air smells, I love the coolness, and I love the colors. To create my crunchy leaves look, I used Sally Hansen Lustre Shine in Copperhead, Sally Hansen Salon Nail Lacquer in Haute Chocolate, Julep Karmen, Julep Candace, and Julep Tatiana.
I painted two coats of Copperhead on for my base. The I used the other colors to randomly create splotches on my nails. To me, this gave the effect of piles of leaves in gorgeous Autumn colors.
I feel like I can feel the leaves crunching under my feet as I walk in the crisp, cool, evening.
I really love how this turned out!
