Autumn Sunset

I struggled with today's nail art; I just couldn't seem to find inspiration. I started doing it without any real clear plan but I'm pleased with the turnout.

I started off with a base of Salon Perfect Light My Fire which is such a gorgeous deep orange with a beautiful shimmer. Can you tell I love it? I then sponged on a gradient using Joe Fresh Mulberry which is a browny purple with a shimmer.

I then went in with ye olde time nail pens and drew in the trees, birds, and grass. It looks very sunsetty if I do say so myself.

I think the only thing I would do differently would be to put a gradient on the accent (ring) finger. It just looks a little plainer than the rest of the nails.

It's been raining like absolutely crazy where I am so I don't think I'll be seeing any beautiful sunsets for a while!

Happy painting!
