The last in the Fall series, I bring you Fall Leaves! This tutorial is super simple and quick to do!
Supplies Needed: A base coat, I used Strawberry Ice Cream Soma by Literary Lacquer because… Well… It’s freaking awesome. You’ll need at least three colors for you leaves. I used Am I Ginger? by LynBDesigns, Wicked by Perception Nail Lacquer and Lake of Shining Waters by Literary Lacquer. You’ll also need a black or brown acrylic paint, a nail art brush, a dotting tool and a pallet.
Step One: After you apply your basecoat, let it dry completely. On your pallet, add a bit of black and water it down a tad so it glides on smoothly.
Step Two: With a gentle hand, draw on your branches. They don’t have to be perfect, no stick or twig is .
Do the same on all nails until you have all your “twigs”
Step three: With your dotting tool, begin putting the “leaves” on the twigs. Do them sparingly with each color because with three colors, it will eventually become a lot of leaves. Repeat until you’ve used the three colors, or you have an abundance of leaves.
Once you’re finished, apply the topcoat of our choice and you’re done!
This is a quick, cute and simple fall mani! If you do one of my manis, please post it to my Facebook page!
