Fall Week, Day 3: Falling Leaves

Good Morning Lovelies!

I hope everyone is Marvelous today!

I am SUPER excited!  I get the next 4 days off!  WOOOHOOO!!  I'm super excited because 3 of those days I will get to spend hanging out with Rob, Mom and my sister!!!!  I am hoping to be able to do a brief post the next 2 days, but I'm kinda doubting it with cooking and shopping, so if I don't I'm Sorry!
I  am also looking forward to playing with my new toys!  I just got in an order from Ebay, all the way from Hong Kong.  It's my UV Light(to go with my UV Top Coat I will get from Sally's on Black Friday with my Coupon!) and a Manicure/Pedicure tool.  The Mani tool is like what they use in nail salons to file acrylics.  This is going to save me so much time.  I can't wait to play with it this weekend!

I also want to say a huge I'm Sorry to all of you!  Things here at work have been insane!  Usually I have a few moments thru the day that I can jump on and respond to my comments.  Sadly though, that just hasn't been the case here recently!  I also have slacked off considerably with my comments on all of your fabulous blogs!  I do still read all my comments and cherish every one, but sadly time has not been on my side.  I'm not sure it will get any better 'til after the first of the year, so please don't be offended if I don't respond!

Ok on to today's mani!!!
This is yet another "inspired by" mani!  I know, I \know, but you guys keep posting such FAB mani's, I can't help but want to wear them myself!
I saw someone post pics of a mani very similar to this well over a month ago.  So if it was you, or you know who did this mani, please let me know in the Comments Section so that I can give credit where credit is due!

I started off with 3 coats of my precious Sinful Color's "Show Me the Way"
SOOO PRETTY!!!!!

Then I stamped the leaf pattern from M20 using Special Polish in "Wine", multiple times over the nail.

Then I stamped the leaf pattern from M31 using China Glaze "Passion", a gold chrome.  This was also stamped multiple times on the nail.  I was also careful to only apply polish to one leaf at a time on the plate and to scrape in a specific direction since I didn't want the bubbles or dots or whatever they are that is in this design on the plate.

 
Whats odd is that in the pics it's very hard to see the gold, it almost looks like it's barely there, but in reality it is quite strong on the nail!


Well, that's all for today!
I hope all my American readers have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  And I hope all my International readers have an fantastic Thursday!

I'm Thankful that I have so many AWESOME friends here!  I LOVE you guys!

Have a great day!
{{{Hugs}}}

Wow. I love the color combination. I think I was the one that started the "falling leaves" manis, but there may be someone else. I love all the color combos that people are coming up with. I think this one is one of my favorites. :)
