The Lisa Frank, rainbow loving girl inside of me is obsessing over the multi-colored nail trend! I had to jump on board and do a colorful fall manicure of my own. I was able to dig through my polish collection and use colors I already own, which was a bonus. I have a shellac machine, so I can do my own gel manicures at home. I also have a great trick for using your regular polish with gel to get a long lasting manicure. First use gel base coat + gel top coat, then regular polish color and then gel base coat + gel top coat and it works just like a regular gel polish would. This comes in handy when you don’t have the gel color you want but you have it in regular polish.
I love to treat myself to a manicure at the salon but, they can get so pricey. I will try and go to the professionals periodically to keep my cuticles and nails in good shape and then maintain at home. I am awful at filing my nails but, I’ve recently started using a crystal file and that has been life changing. For this manicure I wanted to use colors that compliment each other. I went with a light grey, dark plum, and light army green and I also did a gold glitter accent on my thumb.
I had to also add OPI Bubble Bath to this post because it is the ultimate natural pink polish. It is totally versatile for every season. I have this color on my nails more often than not. It is always my go-to. Some more colorful manicure inspo Here & Here .
So, what do you think of the colorful fall manicure? Is it something you’ll try out?
