Easiest Autumn Nails

We're all a bit in an autumn nail craze, aren't we?
I know that if I could take autumn and plaster it all over my nails, I'd be a very happy camper, not to mention a very nature coordinated looking one.

So you wonder how o get

A happy accident made me realize I just need two things:

A red/dark red/metallic/golden polish and flakies. I used Mi Ny in Forever Young and the Essence Special Effect Topper Flakies.

I had completely forgotten about flakies, and as it so often happens, only  a look in my polish boxes made me remember them again.

The reason I suggested the above colors is because we're going for an autumn look. If you want spring feelings, get your pastel on!

What I like about the Essence topper is that the flakies somehow adapt to the polish,ranging from gold to ivory to red and orange, which makes it quite ideal for a lot of polish colors.

In any case, the one simple step to making your nails feel like foliage is throwing on the flakies!
It should look something like this:

Doesn't it look like the trees outside?
I was quite surprised by how pretty and how quintessentially autumnal the colors looked.

So my tip to you: Use those flakies!

    1. do you see the little "bits" on top of the nail that have that orange/greenish reflection? Well those are the flakies, little multicolor well...flakes :)
      Do a google search for "Flakie nail polish" and you'll see that the world is full of 'em and they come in so many pretty colors :)

    1. I thought so too but then I saw them reappear again and then they didn't show up for a while. I'm not really sure if they're still there or not to be honest,will have to do some research. You can also make them yourself by getting flakes online and dipping them in transparent polish

  3. Perfect shade of red to go with the flakes! I think I would try this for Chinese New years too :) I do have an essence counter nearby so I ought to go take a peek if they carry this.
