Fall Leaves

Hey Everyone! I know, I know, another Fall mani. I promise I AM doing winter/Christmas manis now and they will be up soon but I wanted to show you some of these fall colors too. My son ended up with an ear infection so that adds a great bit of fun to my week. I am counting the days until Friday which starts my vacation. I also just fell out of my chair at work. I am the only one in my office so no one saw it but it was pretty funny. My arm, neck and knee are a little sore now though. I am totally ungraceful. Onto the nails!

I used BM04 to stamp the leaf pattern.

I love copper so I used Essie Penny Talk for the leaves.

I used a coat of Oopsie Daisies Ganache over China Glaze Call of the Wild. This polish is awesome in person but my camera didn't pick it up as nicely as I hoped it would.

I used Dare to Wear Get Funky for the gradient and I also put some on the leaves after I stamped them.

Wow I used a lot of polishes for this mani lol. I used China Glaze Call of the Wild for the base color. I don't know why I don't have a bottle shot of that one.

I love the gradient nail. I don't have many pictures of this one because my cuticles were trashed and I don't want to make you suffer through looking at too much of them.

That's all for now :)


  1. I wanted to do a leaves mani this year too, yet somehow I didn't. Now I feel sorry. Yours looks amazing! I keep admiring how great that Essie stamps.
    I hope your son feels better soon!

    1. Awww it is never too late to do leaves!! Although right now in Winter they would be dead leaves lol.

      Thank you :) this is not actually how I intended the leaves to look but they came out nice anyway. Those Essie metallics stamp REALLY well. I am not so sure about them as regular polish but they are perfect for stamping.

      Thank you! He is still sick but was at least ok enough to go to school today. We will see how long he can stay there.


Wow, it has taken me a year to figure out how to write this here! I love comments! I read them all and try to respond as quickly as I can. Thank you for reading and commenting!
