Fall Gradient

Hi there!

This is quintessential Fall...

My nails painted with OPI - Suzi Loves Cowboys and
Chop-Sticking To My Story.

...right? I painted 1 coat of Essie's Very Structured (a rusty brown) as a base. I could have just painted a base of Chop-Sticking To My Story, since Very Structured doesn't show through to the final manicure anyway. For the gradient, I blobbed each polish onto the back of one of my stamping plates then I used one of my cut up makeup sponges to transfer the polish onto my nails.

I topped this manicure with a coat of OPI's Top Coat. Perhaps surprisingly, this was my first time using it... and my first impression wasn't so great. Even with a light hand, the orange and brown polish still transferred to the brush.

What are you wearing on your nails today?

Until next time...


  1. Essence Twilight Breaking dawn part 2 something about Jacob...Jacobs love, Jacob's not a vampire...I don't know the name...It is SOOOOOO beautiful, but i remember why I don't wear Essence a lot. :( yucky formula, and chips within hours. Also, it feels like it dried my nails out, which I think if I remember correctly, that is why I quit wearing my essences all together.

    OH, The reason for my comment:
    I totally want to do a fall-y gradient!!! you've inspired me!!!


  2. So pretty, I really need a non-neon orange!
