Colour Block Leaves

Hello lovelies. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, this is another scheduled post. Hopefully I am starting to build up my tan by now!

Today I have some autumn-y, leafy nails to show you. I decided to try and be a bit unique with my leaves and do a colour clock type design, I have to admit it looked a lot better in my head :P.

Click below for more.

For my base colour I used Avon - Lime Splatter. I think this is the main reason I don't like this manicure that much, there's too much green going on - I think it would have been better with a different colour background. I painted on the shape of my leaves using Sinful Colors - Snow Me White so my colours would all show up properly over the background. Then I filled in the leaves in blocks using Nails Inc - Bruton Mews, OPI - Thanks A Windmillion, OPI - Amazon.. Amazoff, Barry M - Key Lime and Models Own - Apple Pie. I thought the background looked a bit plain so I added some dots using OPI - Amazon.. Amazoff.

So as you can probably tell, I wasn't particularly in love with this nail art. I like the idea, and I think it could look good but I don't think I quite pulled it off. I might try it again at a later date, maybe with some autumnal colours instead.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.

Have a great weekend everyone.
