HPB Presents: Autumn


 HPB is running a blogger-link-up, and the theme is Autumn/Fall.
I know I recently posted about not being ready for summer to be over just yet, but as I just got my Über Chic Beauty - Stamping mat, I thought this would be a great opportunity to test it out.
Make some leaves on it, and fill in. That sort of thing.

Where I live it doesn't look autumn-like at all. The trees are still green, there are still flowers around. I think that's why they call it the Emerald Isle. Haha. So my manicure might look at little too green that what would normally be considered to be a autumn look.

I started out with a coat of clear polish to my Über Chic Beauty - Stamping mat, then I used the leaves from Bundlemonster - Polynesia - BM-XL109. You can read my post about the plate by folloing this link. I I used Barry M - Gelly - Cardamom for that, and filled the leaves in using Barry M - Matte - Mocha. (looking at the ready manicure, this was not a good combination)

I promised you more indie polishes so this time I painted all my nails with Pretty Serious - VT100 that I recently bought.
Looking at it on my nails I think I got a KIKO polish that is a dead on dupe. More on that in another post.

I then took Moyou London - Nature Collection - 07 and stamped some branches on the other nails, using Barry M - Matte - Mocha.

HPB Presents: Autumn. Using Pretty Serious - VT100.

    1. Thank you. I am still having a love hate relationship to my Über Mat.
      But I suppose I just have to stick to it and practice, as it is a bit different that making decals on stamper heads.

    1. I have had mine for a week now, and can't say I think it is super genius or anything.
      But if you are anything like me, love gadgets, then I would say it's a must. haha.

  9. I totally agree with you! I live in Arizona but in the last 3 weeks have traveled to Seattle and Ohio and ZERO fall colors, so it is really hard get inspired. Your mani totally represents all that I have seen for Fall. :)

    1. I sort of felt like a rebel doing it, and didn't want to go too away from the theme, but I guess you are right. Fall sceneries are different depending on where we live.
