DIY: Fall Nails with Trees

Fall Nails tutorial

Now last but not least for this creative week I have a project for YOU, not your house. After a week of DIY projects, I felt that I was neglecting myself a little bit so I sat down and I did my nails with a gold shimmering tone named 485 Golden-I from Sally Hansen. It was pretty.

So I started thinking, how could I make them look more like fall. I have always loved trees. I’ve made a lot of designs inspired by trees because I love the organic shapes and I love making dots that look like leaves, so i decided to try them out on my nails and it totally worked!

MATERIAL:

  • A gold tone nail polish to use as a base. Any light color would work.
  • Dark brown nail polish with skinny brush. Any dark color would work.
  • Orange nail polish. Or green, purple, yellow.
  • A toothpick.

I would say that I spent approximately $12 dollar on all these nail polishes, but since I already had them at home, this particular project was kind of free. I would suggest you to look through your drawers and see what colors you already have. Browns, oranges, greens, purples and yellows work perfectly.

STEPS:

  1. Paint your nails using a light color as a base.

  2. Draw some branches using a skinny brush. Don’t let the nail polish drip, soak it and then clean the brush a bit before you start making the branches. Make as many branches as you want. I started making a big line and then 3 small ones.

  3. Drop a little bit of nail polish in a piece of paper and use the toothpick to make the dots over the branches.

  4. Let them dry and enjoy them this fall! you can apply a layer of glossy protector after they dry.
