Falling Forward Nail Art Challenge - Day Five: Leaves!

Hi everyone! Today is day five of the Falling Forward Nail Art Challenge - leaves! I remember when I was younger and autumn came and the leaves changed and fell, my dad would rake them all into a big pile at the end of the hill in front of our house and my brother and I would roll down the hill into them. I'm 24 years old now but I can still do that, right? :)

Polishes used were: Essie Braziliant, China Glaze Kahlari Kiss, butterLONDON Cheeky Chops, China Glaze Prey Tell and China Glaze Concrete Catwalk. (Not pictured: Essie Shine of Times - I totally used that last minute!) I followed the awesome tutorial here!

I'm pleased with the way these came out. They look a little tribal, which  I'm bummed about but unfortunately, I haven't invested in some stripers yet. Definitely will be snagging some before I participate in another nail art challenge.

Eek! I'm so sad this is our second to last challenge! :( WAHHH.

As always, check out these lovely ladies for their leaves-inspired nails:


  1. Great job!! I thought about trying something like this, but decided on sponging abstract! Love it!

  2. Cute mani! (: They look very similar to the ones I did for a tribal print.

  3. So pretty! I wish I did something like this for mine now! The colors are perfect, and I think Shine of the Times really adds to it! :)


Let me hear your thoughts!
