Autumn Leaves

First Mani of Autumn

Hello all again, back with my normal Saturday Nails and feels good to be blogging again on a Saturday, as I did really miss doing a post last weekend. Anyway, before I start with today's manicure, following on from my last post on Nutra Nails Gel Perfect Polish, I did say I'd share the removal of it with you all. I use large cotton wool pads to remove my polish, so I cut these into smaller pieces, soaked them in acetone and had some foil squares already. Basically how most ladies remove glitter polish with the foil method.
I left them on for about 3 mins, and wasn't sure what to expect with I took them off..

Please excuse my naked nails, but as you can see it was a perfect removal :) You can see how the gel polish soaked into the acetone cotton pad, and nothing was left on my nails at all!

So back to today's mani, and my first one of the new season. I started out with a polish I bought for Autumn last year but never got around to using it properly. This is two coats and no topcoat.

A very rich berry red from Me Me Me called Seductive. Then using Bundle Monster plate BM04 I stamped the largest leaf in random places on each nail using these polishes.

Metallic Orange, Butter-fly Stroke and Inspiring.
It took a while, but here is the cleaned up look with no topcoat.

And with topcoat...

The metallic orange and Sally Hansen Yellow stamped really well, the Me Me Me dark green just left a subtle look. Its very similar to the Autumn Leaves I did last year, but still a look I like, and think is very effective. What do you think? 
I will be back on Wednesday with a very special and personal mani that I really can't wait to do and share with you all, so till then have a fantastic weekend, stay safe and much love...
