Autumnal gradient with gold leaves: November Polish Party

For the Polish Party theme for November, the vote was tied equally between autumn and weather. I’ve gone with autumn as I’ve had the idea for these nails ever since I did my autumnal stripes with the same polishes.

Because of that manicure, I knew that the polishes would gradient well. They are all Barry Ms: Mustard, Paprika, and Cocoa. The stamping polish is also Barry M; it’s Foil Effects Gold.

This is a fairly standard look – a gradient of warm, autumn colours, with some leaves stamped over the top – but I’ve never done anything like it, so for me it’s new 🙂

It is truly gorgeous. I can’t stop looking at its crème caramelly goodness.

If you want to join the party, and want to paint one themed manicure with us every month, please join the Facebook group. All welcome!
