Autumn inspired matte gradient tape mani

I've been wearing quite a few 'spring' feeling manis recently and I finally got the urge to do an Autumn one.  The leaves are just starting to change colour here now and Canberra always looks so pretty in Autumn.  

This mani was done by starting with a white base.  I then taped off the top at the base of the nail and applied a piece of striping tape down the centre of each nail.  Next I used a sponge to create the gradient.  The colours I used were Picture Polish Violet Femme, Frank-n-furter and Citrus and OPI I Can't Cope-a-cabana. I finished it all of with a coat of OPI Matte Top Coat.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I love the contrast. Very cool matte mani. :)

  3. It's curious! It reminds me of the windows.

  4. Beautiful Cathy - the colours match my golden rain tree that is changing at the moment!

  5. oooh this is really fun and different!
