Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”
I changed the colors after the first two steps of this design so the colors will change but pick a few fall colors of your choice and apply one as a base color. In this picture I used MAC’s “Before Dawn.”
With a striper brush and the color for the lines paint a vertical line down the middle of the nail. I used Winstonia’s “Short” Striper brush and at this time I used Essie’s “Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Lo.” This is just a rough outline as it will mostly likely get messed up when filling in colors.
With the same tools, add three slanted lines on both sides of the vertical line.
Then, fill in each gap with by alternating your fall colors. I used Red Carpet’s “Detail Brush”, Essie’s “Very Structured”, Finger Paints’ “Tangerine Tint” and Apple Barrel’s “Yellow”acrylic paint.
Go back over your lines/outline with the same striper brush and color (if you stuck to the same one). I used Sinful Color’s “Rich in Heart.”
Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”
Your fall tree/leaf nails are finished!
