Hello!  Well it looks like autumn is here and I thought I would share a little tutorial for some autumn themed nail art!

For this you will need:

  • White polish
  • Yellow, orange and red polishes for your gradient
  • Brown or black polish
  • Dotting tools
  • Orange stick
  • Glitter
  • Nail polish remover
  • Cotton buds/brush for clean up
  • Top coat

So to start, paint your nails a white base coat.  My go to base at the moment is Rimmel White Hot Love.

Use a damp make up sponge to apply your gradient.  For a full tutorial on gradients, check out my detailed tutorial here.

And then carefully clean up using a cotton bud/brush and nail polish remover.

Next, using a dotting tool and a dark brown polish, start to draw out some branches.

They don't need to be uniform or the same on each nail, whatever fits/suits.

Apply another branch at the base of your nail if you've got space.

Then use a dotting tool to add some red and yellow flowers to your branches.
