Nail art // HPB presents Autumn Leaves!

Hi loves! Today is a special day, I'm participating in my very first Hobby Polish Bloggers (HPB) link-up! The HPB Facebook group is such a lovely community to be a part of, and every month there's this link-up hosted by Steph, the mastermind behind the group. Somehow I never got around to participate but this time I did, so yay for that!

The theme is Fall/autumn and the one thing I love about Fall are the changing leaves. So that was my inspiration for today's look.

To create this look, I started with 2 coats of Cirque Colors McKittrick. If this one sounds unfamiliar, it might be because it's the October addition to the Metropolis line ;-). Full swatches coming soon! What's so lovely about this shade is that it's dark, but still noticeably green. After it dried I applied some Dance Legend Pure Manicure cuticle protector and stamped a leafy pattern from Born Pretty Store BP-L003. The polishes used to stamp are Hit The Bottle Rusty Nail and H&M Look At Me. Unfortunately, the gradient didn't show up as strongly as I hoped, the colors might have been a bit too close.

I love how the design combines the dark green of leaves before changing into Fall colors, and the warm tones of the ones that have changed already. All the different colors that come to life during Fall season are so pretty!

Please make sure to check out all the other participants in this link-up, I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this theme.

What's your favorite thing about Fall? Tell me in the comments!
Born Pretty Store is a large online shop with a great assortment of nail art goodies, nail polish and other beauty products. They ship worldwide and for free too, so that's nice! Heck, you can even take 10% off regular priced items using my coupon TRL91.
