I've been really excited seeing so many fall/autumn nail art designs created lately, and it has definitely put me in the mood to do some of my own. Today's look features a classic fall color scheme along with a classic fall print. Check out this burgundy plaid look!
My palette for this design uses three polishes, including a duochrome courtesy of ILNP.
|L-R: Essie Penny Talk, ILNP Nostalgia, MoYou Nails Burgundy|
I chose this plaid design from the MoYou London Hipster 06 plate, which is chock full of fun plaid patterns. The rest was a matter of alternating stamping color to base color, so on my thumb I've stamped Burgundy over Nostalgia, and on my index, middle, and pinky, I stamped Nostalgia over Burgundy. Again, though most duochromes aren't opaque enough to make a "typical" stamping polish, when you stamp them over a dark base color, it definitely works. To add just a hint of "accent," I used Penny Talk to stamp over Nostalgia on my ring finger. My original attempt used Good As Gold, but I felt it was far too "cold" compared to the rest of the manicure, and it clashed. Switching to the slightly more copper shade in Penny Talk gave me just enough warmth to make it work.
I love how the color shift happens with Nostalgia whether it's the base polish or the stamping polish! I had a moment of sunlight on the day I wore these, and I couldn't stop rotating my fingers around to see the shifts happen. If people here don't already think I'm weird enough, bygolly I WILL give them some fodder!
So now it's your turn to let me know what you think. Are you still in love with color-shifters like me, or are you ready for that trend to move along? Let me know down in the comments!
