Nail Challenge: Nature

Hey Loves!
Finally got my nails done for today's nail challenge prompt: Nature! :)
I did some dotty autumn trees, with a stamped owl and deers no each nail-the deers are a bit unnoticeable and subtle which I quite like, as deers are generally hiding in real life!


I started with three thin coats of Avon 'Well Being', I really like this polish; the beige colour and subtle gold shimmer is lovely and would be a polish I would wear for an interview. It gave nice coverage and needed three coats for full opacity and it dried even quicker than Barry M.

One coat of Sally Hansen 'Insta-Grip Fast Dry Base Coat' - £1.50 from Fragrance Direct
- Two coats of Avon 'Well Being' - £3 from Avon
- Tree Art with Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine's 'Chilli', 'Cocoa', 'Paprika', Mustard', and 'Cardamom' - £3.99 each from Boots/Superdrug
- Stamping with MoYou London 'Hipster 04' - £5 from MoYou London
- Stamping with Barry M 'Mushroom' - £2.99 from Boots/Superdrug
- One coat of Glisten and Glow (HK Girl) 'Fast Drying a Super Shiny Clear Topcoat' - £6.55 from Rainbow Connection 

Once the base had completely dried, I then used a wooden toothpick and a number of the autumn 2014 Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine polishes, 'Chilli', 'Paprika', 'Cocoa', 'Cardamom' and 'Mustard'. This was really quick and easy, I then used Cocoa to draw in the tree trunks.

Lastly, I used MoYou London's Hipster 04 plate for the owl and the deer stamps and used Barry M 'Mushroom' to stamp them in place :), giving a more autumny nature feel.
