Essie Playing Koi

Zoya Cam & Ziv

OPI Squeaker of the House

KBShimmer Clearly on Top


I started with two coats of Playing Koi - I am in love with this color for Fall - I then used my small fine line brush and paint on Cam, Ziva and Squeaker in vague leaf patterns. I didn't worry too much about precision since I would be outlining each leaf to give it more shape and dimension. I then used my black acrylic paint and my smallest striping brush for the Berry wine set to outline the leaves. I finished with a coat of Clearly on Top.
