Autumn Leaves with The Arcanist

Hi Goddesses

Earlier today I showed you the autumnal glory that is The Arcanist by Darling Diva - pure autumn in a bottle.

So, when you wear this polish, what is the obvious thing that's going to happen?  That's right, autumn leaf nail art.

Wearing this polish, all I could see was New England autumns, with piles of red leaves, some of them turning other colours, so I decided to replicate this mound of crunchy autumn using KIKO 619, Essie Penny Talk and my orange Konad.

Like a complete plonker I forgot to write down which plate I used, but I liked that it had the maple leaf shape to match the colours.

This multi-toned stamping is really easy to achieve and SO effective on the nail.   When you place your polish on your stamping plate, place it in small dots - a few blobs of one colour here, a few blobs of another colour there - and then as you scrape it off, they will blur.  They don't merge totally, so don't worry, but  I love this mix n match effect they create.
