Start off by applying a base coat. I used Sally Hansen’s “Double Duty Base and Top Coat”.


Then, paint your nails with a background color of your choice. I applied four coats of Sally Hansen’s “Almost Almond”.


Next, paint two curved diagonal lines to create the tree trunk. I did this using a striping brush and Delta Ceramcoat’s “Autumn Brown” acrylic paint.

Then, fill in the trunk. I did this using a liner brush.


Next, using the same liner brush and acrylic paint, paint curvy or wavy lines coming out around the trunk to create the branches.


Now it is time to paint the leaves. This was a bit difficult to show how to do on my nails, so I painted it on my palette step-by-step. It is one vertical line with four short lines or two long lines coming diagonally out of the sides.

Paint the leaves all over the branches with different colors. I used Apple Barrel’s “Christmas Green”, “Yellow”, “Pumpkin Orange”, and “Bright Red”.

Then, to fill up more space, I painted some falling leaves below the branches.


Lastly, apply a top coat. I used Sally Hansen’s “Advanced Hard as Nails Strengthening Top Coat”.


Your fall manicure is complete!
