Fall Nail Design
Here are the polishes and nail art tools we will use for this design:
Base and Top coat - CND Stickey Base Coat and Revlon Extra Life No Chip top coat.
Nail polishes- Revlon- Gold Coin and Zoya- Marjorie- Redbook Trio.
Acrylic paint- black, white, blue, red, green, and yellow.
Nail art tools- thin detail brush, thin linear brush, small detail brush, and a medium size dotting tool.
Other- cup of water to clean off your nail art brushes.
Let's start this fall nail design, that will be great for a crisp fall day!
As always start off with a thin layer of base coat.
Once your base coat has dried polish your thumb, middle, and ring finger nail with a gold polish. Then polish your index and pinky nail with a burgundy or plum colored polish.
Let that dry, then we will make some leaves on our middle and ring finger nail. Starting with our ring finger nail, with a thin detail brush with brown paint on it (if you don't have brown paint mix yellow, red and blue to make brown) make a large leaf shape with two points on each side and one in the middle. Once that dries paint over that with red and orange paint.
For the three yellow leaves, first make the shape with white paint, that way it will show up.Then go over that with yellow paint and some orange as well.
Near the cuticle make another leave, this leaf will be red and orange.
Just for an added touch make a few small different colored dots that are together, with your dotting tool.
*For this design I actually found that is looked kind of better if you didn't wipe off your brush between colors, it kind of helps the fall leave colors to blend together.*

On to the middle finger nail,we will make some more fall leaves. For this design the leaves will be on some branches. Make a few random brown lines for the branches. Then make some different leaf shapes on the branches, I made five leaves, some where the same shape other where different. Just like the ring finger nail go over the leaves a few times to make them multiple colors. Also once again add some colorful dots on the branches.
Cute fox on the thumb nail
Next we will make the cute fox on the thumb. I always like to make the characters on the thumb nail because of this nail being the largest nail and their being more space to create.
For the shape of the fox, we will first start off by making the outline with white paint. Make a large circle for his head, then his body, and the on the side a half of his tail. For the white part of the fox's face make that part more of an opaque white.
Once the white outline has dried go over the top of the head, body, and tail with orange paint. For his face make a black oval for this nose in the middle and then two circles for his eyes. Then on his ears make two brown triangles.Near the cuticle make to brown circles for his paws. On his tail paint just the tip white.
The fox I was a little afraid it was going to look a little like a cat, but is ended up turn out just right and super cute.
Practice fall nail design
Sometimes I like to share my practice version of my nail design. I really liked how this one turned out and thought it was worth sharing. The fox I ended up doing twice and the second time (shown about) turned out good, and turned out well in the final design as well.
