Fallen Leaves Mani.

Good evening! How has your Monday been? Mine's been quite good. Still no word from the vet though. Hopefully, we will have more news tomorrow. I belong to a couple of online nail forums, and one of them has themes from time to time. Today's theme was fallen leaves, and I decided to take part in it.

I started out using China Glaze Below Deck, which is from this year's summer collection. Below Deck is a taupe color with a creme finish. I then used several different colored glitters. I used a burnt orange glitter, by a brand I picked up at Marshall's called Color Zone. The green glitter is by Love & Beauty which you can find at Forever 21. It's just called green. How original, huh? :-D It's an exact dupe to LA Girl's Purge from the Glitter Addict collection. It has small green glitter, and medium sized round green glitter. I used Wet 'n Wild Prancer from last year's holiday collection. It's med. sized red glitter in a clear base. The gold glitter pieces are NYX Girls Gilded Glitter. Of course, I had to see what it looked like matte, so I used Essie Matte About You.

First up, are the pics. before I used the Matte top coat.


Close Up's.
