Themed Thursday - November 5th: Leaves

nothing to disclose

Hello, hello! It's been a whirlwind week but I hope you all had a great Halloween weekend! It's finally November (aka the best month of the year, aka my birthday month!!) and that means my BFF Kelli from The Nail Polish Challenge and I have another set of Themed Thursday prompts to share and partake in!

Our theme this month is Autumn so all of our challenge prompts are related to things you see and experience in Autumn. This is by far my favorite time of year and I'm so excited to get to do a bunch of nail art inspired by it all.

Our first prompt is Leaves so I've painted one of my favorite fall combos - sunflowers and changing autumn leaves.

I started with a base of Zoya's Codie and then used my new Artist's Loft Vienna Spotter 18/0 with lots of acrylic paints to create this look. I started with the sunflowers and then painted in the leaves around that. I added accent colors to pull the whole look together and then of course added a matte top coat because it's necessary ;)

I really love how these turned out! I got to do a little bit of my favorite thing (floral!) and it was fun to incorporate the autumn leaves in with this one. I really love the contrast between the brown base and the pop of color from the flowers/leaves.

How do you like these? I'd love to hear what you think! :) Be sure to check out the #themedthursdaynov tag to see what everyone else is doing for today!

Happy Polishing :)
