Fall Nail Art 2012. Spooky Sunset

I saw this picture online and decided this would make a really nice fall nail. And the best part is that its so easy! Hope you try it out!
Start off with a lighter shade of grey. Here I used Loreal in Greycian Goddess 560. Two coats.
Next take a stripe polish in black or you can use a fine brush and any black polish. Paint an almost messy like french tip on all your fingers except your thumb. Paint the thumb the way you see in the picture below.
Next grab an orange. I used two different oranges just to create some depth in the sun. I really wanted the sun to pop. For my oranges I chose OPI in Chopsticking to my Story and China Glaze in Thataway. With a dotting tool or a tooth pick, create a circle on your middle or ring finger.
Now comes the fun part! Create a tree with the same black. What I love about this is that it can be so organic. Put two, three or even four trees if you wish! Just be sure to not cover the sun to much. Have the sun peeking thru your spooky trees. I painted three trees and had them climbing onto other nails.
Now be sure to use a really nice thick top coat. I used Seche Vite. I then decided to see how the Matte finish would look. I have to say, the matte is quite spooky!
The first finish set here is the glossy finish.

Matte finish.
  See you soon!
