Ahhhhhhhh Autumn!

Hi Everyone!!! Happy Weekend!  It's a good day to be inside baking or reading a book this week.  It's cloudy, rainy and definitely not warm.  We might be moving right into Winter here lickety split!

I FINALLY did an Autumn manicure I love!  I found a lovely palette on Design Seeds that I went with and it helped me create what I think is a true Autumn gradient for my nails!
The look of yellow to orange to burgundy to brown is just what I was looking for!
This is the palette I found on Design Seeds
I had to get creative and franken the orange color as it's a much softer orange than anything I have.  I used Sinful Color Pull Over for the yellow, my frankened orange, Zoya Toni for the burgundy/rust and OPI Get In The Espresso Lane for the brown.
I stamped in silver even though it seems you should go with gold with their color scheme--but I wanted to stay true to my palette
I used my SA17 plate for stamping
I'm pleased with how this turned out!

What do you think?  Do you like it better with or without the stamping on it?

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!


  1. It must be the weather... I just picked out very similar colors to do a gradient, then I seen your post lol

  2. I love how you can franken anything Laurie! lol I also did a similar gradient yesterday for today's AIS challenge hihi. And I love yours!!! Kisses,


  3. Flawless! Everything about this mani is just flawless! Your franken orange was SPOT ON!, and your gradient is perfection. Adding silver cooled the whole look down, and added an element of frostiness "in the air and on the leaves" that you see in the picture. I love design seeds, and I have a pinterest board for them... with the intention of doing inspired manis, and I haven't done one yet!
