Fall Into Autumn Challenge - Autumn Leaves

Sorry for the late post with this past week's FIAC mani. I was out of town this past weekend at my brother-in-law's wedding. It was very nice and you will probably be seeing some pictures from that coming up soon :)

This weeks theme is Autumn Leaves. Living in Pennsylvania, I am lucky to experience the lovely changing leaves during the fall-time. Driving from western PA to eastern PA for the wedding, I saw a ton of fall foliage, so that was my inspiration. Here are some shots that my husband took for me while we were driving.



Sorry for the crappy inside the car camera phone pictures. LOL. Anyway, here is the mani that I did for my "Autumn Leaves" theme.






Polishes Used:
-OPI - Nail Envy
-Sinful Colors - Last Chance (Dark Green)
-Sally Hansen - Parrot (Green)
-Sinful Colors - Nirvana (Brown)
-Sinful Colors - Cloud 9 (Orange)
-OPI - On Collins Ave (Red)
-Sinful Colors - Pull Over (Yellow)
-Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
-BM-208
-OTD

Since most of the trees we saw driving were dark green originally, I started with a dark green base of Last Chance. Next, I sponged on, Parrot, Nirvana, Cloud 9, On Collins Ave and Pull Over. Finally, I stamped on the leave pattern in the white, yellow, brown and red polishes. At first, I thought that I had ruined it with all the additional colored stamping instead of leaving it at white, but the more I look at it, the more I LOVE it!! 

What do you think? Are you lucky enough to get to experience the changing leaves?
