Watercolor Autumn Leaves Mani

Who doesn't love the changing leave of the Fall months. Its certainty helps me with the transition from summer to fall. You cant help but marvel at the beauty of it all. So many brilliant colors.
This is my attempt at recreating that beauty onto my nails.

Harry Potter Inspired Collection by A.T.C. Nail Polish

Above The Curve Nail Polish is soon to be releasing the Harry Potter inspired collection on September 3rd!
Featuring 9 polishes including four created by facebook fans!
Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, Sirius Black, Polyjuice Potion, Wingardium Leviosa, Spectrespec and Patronus Charm.
If you would like to see more of this collection, or purchase, other than the 4 I have please visit these outlets for ATC
 
Lets get to the swatches!
Each swatch is 2 coats of polish without a top coat.
I very much loved each color I swatched. These are so beautiful in person. Siruis Black was my favorite. But to be honest all are quite yummy.
The brush is nice and flat. Picks up a good amount of polish and is easy to coat.
I was a little disappointed that the brush does not go all the way to the bottom of the bottle. BUT I am not sure if these bottles will be for sale. It may just be what was sent out for swatching purposes. And honestly the colors are so great that I would just grab and empty bottle and use that.
Its not a full size bottle but not a mini either.
 
 
Lets start with Wingardium Levosa
 
 
 Sirius Black
 
Direct Light 
 
 
 
 Patronus Charm
 
Direct Light
 
Gryffindor
 
What do you think? I really do love this collection.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2014.Ixiah Inspired Nail Art/ Collab

 
I have the great pleasure to collab again with Krystal from beautybykrystal . So click on her name there to see more info about her beautiful manicure. And scroll down to have a looksee.
We have such a blast getting inspiration from Fashion Week. Which I must admit, the fashion itself doesn't really excite me all that much. But to put those prints on to the nail? Yup! That I can get behind.
 
This time our Designer chosen is Ixiah.
To see the rest of her collection click HERE
It is totally worth a look.
 
Products used for this mani are:
Base is from Morgan Taylor in All White Now
Matte topper is from butter London
Acrylic paint in black, white, red, neon green and lavender.
My trusty nail art brush from Stylish Nail Art Shop
Top coat is from HK
 
To create the water color look you must have the base matte finish.
And water down your paint a lot.
I don't have more picture to show the processes this time. But I do have another watercolor mani I did and put a pictorial with it.
 
 
 
 
 
Here is Krysta's super cute nails and inspiration.
