Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”
Apply a base color of your choice, I applied a white nail polish and then a sheer cream polish for my base. I used Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in “White Out” and Essie’s “Walk Down the Aisle.” The white polish was just to make the sheer cream polish more opaque.
Next, use a small piece of a makeup sponge held with tweezers or your fingers and dip it in a fall color to make the tree leaves (I chose yellow and orange). Then, simply sponge the polish in a circular shape on the nail. I used Maybelline’s “Fierce N Tangy” and Finger Paints’ “Tangerine Tint.”
Repeat this process until you are satisfied with the leaves.
For the tree trunk and branches use a brown polish or acrylic paint and a detail brush. Paint the trunk by creating two curved lines that are wider towards the tip of the nail and fill it in. I used Delta Ceramcoat’s “Autumn Brown” acrylic paint and Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush.
Then create thin squiggly lines coming from the trunk and then coming from those lines to create branches using the same tools.
Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”
Your fall tree nails are finished!
