Story behind Foto: Where I live it finally started to feel like fall or autumn, we had rain and leaves are starting to cover the ground. After the rain lifted, earlier this week, something inside of me could not wait to go outside, during a break at work, and take foto’s. Here you have a mosaic of various shades of fall, all within one frame.

The change in season has really inspired me and I hope you check back to see what I create.

Enjoy, CAT

Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to participate in a fall tradition – visiting a pumpkin patch. Lemos  farm is located in Half Moon Bay, Calif., not too far from San Francisco. The farm is ideal for little ones because it offers pony rides, it has a mini train that goes on a short ride, and there’s also a hay ride, but we were unable to make because the little ones had a melt-down. Oh, and for those who are a bit older there’s also a haunted house on-site but that was not an option for us. The farm also has goats, chickens, and a little duck pond, which make a fun feeding experience for children.

Like I said, they have a pumpkin patch and they have plenty to choose from. These pumpkins inspired today’s tutorial:

Start off by using an orange nail polish to make a semi wide line through the middle of your nail, start from the mid section to the edge. Then you will follow with two semi wide lines on each side of the middle, start a little lower so you have one tall and two shorter lines.

Then with a dotting tool (or a small fine brush) dip it in a dark color, I am using a forest green, to outline the edge of your pumpkin.

Once the outlines have been defined, add a stem on top of the taller orange line.

Now you should have something similar to this:

I added color to my other two nails without a pumpkin so I would not have naked nails. You can choose to leave then are they are or add color. Depending on how creative you want to get you can also add faces or make them with different colors, totally up to you, let your creativity flow.

Products used:

  • Mad About Mango by Revlon
  • Tough Art to Follow by Finger Paints
  • a small tip dotting tool
  • a medium tip dotting tool

Let me know if you re-create these nails.

Hope you enjoy, CAT

A few days back I saw a featured mani on @Julepmaven (Julep, a monthly nail polish and other beauty products subscription) on Instagram and I loved it so much I had to recreate the look. The original design was created by @libedon (aka The Polished Fox).

The design is pretty simple and easy to recreate, but I specially love the color combination. The polishes I used are: “Natural” by Love & Beauty (Forever 21 nail polish line), and “Man Hunt” by China Glaze.

What do you think, you like?

Also. feel free to follow me on Intagram @Kitty5289.

Thanks for visiting, CAT.

 

I recently purchased several nail polish from Sally’s Beauty Store that were on clearance. Here is one of my favorites – Foie Gras by China Glaze from their Hunger Games collection.

Foie Gras is a milky, dark chocolate, brown which is a fantastic color for fall and I am sure I will be wearing it quite often.

What colors do you like for the fall?
