The theme this week for our Artsy Wednesday nail art challenge is leaves, which is convenient since autumn (or for you Americans, “fall” :P) has just started – I did a gradient of autumny colour across my nails, then stamped over it using BM-205.
 

I’ve been really into cremes recently, and ulta3 has a solid selection of nail art staples – I used Tangerine Tango (orange), Honolulu (yellow), Tahitian Lime (green), and one of my recent favourites, Nubar Milk Chocolate Creme (brown). For stamping I used ulta3 Gold Rush Fever (PRC). I like using a big-holed dishwashing sponge for gradients – I’ve never gotten good results with makeup sponges, if you have any tips for that please let me know, because I have a buttload of makeup sponges that need using!
