Manicure Monday - Fall Forest Friends Stamped Nail Art

Happy Manicure Monday! It's almost time to thank about Fall - the season starts on Saturday! (Side note - is there anything worse than rushing your top coat and smudging your nails just slightly?! I have been so patient lately, but not this week!)

Manicure Monday - Fall Forest Friends Stamped Nail Art

Ever since I purchased this adorable Forest Cuties stamping plate, I have been waiting for the perfect time to finally put it to use! I'm still a bit of a beginner with nail stamping, so I need some more stamping practice - I'm really going to try and do it more often! 

Since the seasons are currently changing, this week choice for the #CBBxManiMonday theme was easy - Fall! So make sure you check out Jayne from Cosmetic Proof, Trysh from Prairie Beauty Love, and Eithne of Tea & Nail Polish to see their take on our weekly theme!

Manicure Monday - Fall Forest Friends Stamped Nail Art

For this week's Manicure, I started with 2 coats of Sage Green polish as a base coat. With a brown polish, I stamped the animals and their background on to my nails, then with the orange nail art polish, I filled in the animals. And to finish it off, I added a little touch of gold glitter to each animal.

I really wanted to reverse stamp these - I think that's where you fill in the stamped pattern before you stamp it on the nail; but, I couldn't quite get it! If you have any reverse stamping tips, I would love to hear them!

Even though I'm still getting the hang of the stamping, I love how cute these little Fall Forest Friends turned out - I think they are super cute! And these polish colours have me thinking about Fall!

  2. OMG this is so cool! I wish I had the skills to do something like this haha. I can barely get normal polish on without smudging it everywhere!
