I beLEAF this is it…

Since my last post discussed (in depth!) colours I don’t normally wear, I thought it would only be fair to mention colours I actually DO wear. Pretty simple. If it can be spotted during autumn, I’ll wear it. Exciting, I know! 😛 Burnt oranges, rich chocolate browns, decadent olive greens…yup! After years of experimentation (not THAT kind of experimentation! 😛 ) I’ve found that these types of hues complement my hair and complexion best. So, without further ado, my latest mani…

As a base, I used China Glaze ‘Goin’ my way?’ a deep chocolate brown with golden shimmer. Using Bundle Monster’s plate 225 I stamped with Konad orange polish. Topped it off with Essie “Good to go” for a little extra shine. What I love most about this mani is how subtle it is. You can only see the leaf-like design when the light hits it at the right angle. Definitely work appropriate, which is more than I can say for my Snooki creation… 😛
However, with the trends constantly changing, I just may be turning a new leaf…

So, let me know. Do you lean towards warmer or cooler hues?

    I love the subtle pattern! While there is something to be said about high contrast patterns, I do have a soft spot for colors that contrast subtly. It makes it look sweet, if that makes any sense. The pairing also feels vintage-y too me. I like it a lot!

      I definitely agree! Tone on tone can really look interesting. And now that you’ve pointed it out, I DO see the vintage-y vibe…:o)
