NOTW 8: Autumn Dotticure

I have resigned myself to the fact that it is finally autumn, and although I don't dislike the season, I do wish that summer went on a little while longer! Nevertheless, autumn brings some beautiful colours and I think it's time to start creating some autumn inspired designs! This week was a simple design and I just used a few different autumn themed colours to create a mixture of dots! I used a large dotting tool and went crazy with the colours! I used Sally Hansen's 'Dune' as a base colour and built up the dots over each other. I used Barry M's 'Crush', which is a deep red (and will be coming up in a future post...), a bright orange (Sally Hansen's 'Man-Go Team!'), Essie's 'Glamour Purse', which is a lovely chocolate brown, a shimmery copper colour from Seventeen, which is called 'Copper' funnily enough... and a purple/grey/brown colour from Lumier, which doesn't have a name. I just swapped between the colours and used the dotting tool to randomly apply the dots over the nail. I think overlapping them gives the impression of a pile of leaves and I think it looks so nice for this time of year! I finished with a top coat to smooth everything over and ensure that it lasts as long as possible! It's such an easy design to try and there are no worries of messing it up! I think I'll try this again in the future when I'm running low on ideas!

Until next time...
