30 Days of Colour: Orange pond nails "Autumn leaves"


It's an orange day and I love orange, so I prepared something very special. It's improved and upgrade with flakie top coat version of my quit popular autumn nail design. This nail art is done using pond technique and I combine layers of home made neon orange jelly with stamping and layers of flakie polish Up Colors Flocado Base, which I also used as a top coat. Pond nails are time consuming as you absolutely must wait for nail polish to dry before layers, but amazing result totally worth it. I love this look so much, because my favorite part of the autumn is colorful leaves, and I do not care that autumn is so far away. At least I can have them on my nails. Do not forget to see macro at the end it's gorgeous.
