These are definitely some of my favorites in a while. I wanted to do something with fall colors, and was inspired by these nails by Mr. Candiipants (she’s awesome – you should definitely check her out!). They were actually easier than I had expected, and I’m glad to have this design in my arsenal. It’s a nice way to combine colors that is still unusual and interesting.
I used OPI Samoan Sand as a base (I’m absolutely loving sheer colors as bases for nail art at the moment), and painted on the herringbone with my most “fall” colors: OPI Ginger Bells, China Glaze Kalahari Kiss, and China Glaze Desert Sun, with OPI Ski Teal We Drop added in to offset all the orange.
P.S. Sorry about the lack of posts lately. I wish I had a good excuse, but truth is, I was a little bit unmotivated (plus I forgot about the pictures still on my camera and didn’t feel like taking new ones), and an expansion pack for the Sims 3 (any fans out there?) came out, sooo I’ve been playing that instead of blogging. I only feel a little bad. But, it was a much needed “break” and now I’m back! So expect some good (or at least ok) posts this week 🙂
