Abstract Autumn Trees

With autumn just a few days away, and National Tree Day coming up, I thought I would try this simple look. I wasn't in the mood to do free hand art trees today. haha

I painted my nails with one coat of Vintage Boutique from Avon and then added the striping tape for the trunk and branches of the trees. I then added a coat of Bianco White Tip from Borghese to help the fall coloured leaves show up better. I then did a sponge gradient with Rimmel's Sage All The Rage, China Glaze's Solar Power and Avon's Coral Beat and Cherry Jubilee.

I hope these will last at least until Thursday because I have a special Tree Speak ceremony at a special willow tree here in the city to attend. We will also be feasting our sacred items that day because of the equinox. Here's hoping the weather and everything goes well for that special day!

Gold French Tips

Had another weekly challenge from the ladies at Nail Art Nation, this week: French Tips. I thought I would give the new french tip stickers I purchased from AVON a try. I went with the rounded curve pattern. It certainly makes my nails look very long. I like that. hehe

I need to get a new camera, mine has stopped working. I had to borrow a friend's to take this shot. Maybe I'll get one for my birthday. Anyway, hopefully I can keep using this camera in the meantime.

Polishes used: AVON's ridge filling base coat, followed by two coats of their Barefoot Beige, the golden tips are Sally Hansen's Golden-I and topped off with the wonderful Seche Vite! I love that top coat, fast drying as the name indicates and loads of shine!
