Red Sweater Print for Fall

Hey!

Tis Thursday! One more day before Friday and only two days away from Saturday. I am super excited for Saturday, I have a very important date! Do you guys have any fun plans for this weekend?

So, although I do love Halloween and all the great manis that come with it, I am happy to be getting into November. I love the warm red, orange, and burnt yellow tones that you start to see everywhere. I also love that we get to transition to sweater season cause while I missed the train for bikini bods this summer, my oversized sweater body is ready and on point!

For this manicure, I grabbed this gorgeous Essie Polish I found on clearance for $3 while shopping recently. Its called Berry Naughty and as you can see its a gorgeous deep red wine tone. Two coats of this and I was almost ready to just sport this mani as is.

Next, I grabbed my Y019 stamping plate that I picked up from the Born Pretty Store which features a lot of diamond designs you typically see on sweaters. You guys know the sweater designs that I’m talking about right? For all my nails except my ring finger, I stamped the simple cross etched design on the top right hand of the plate. This picked up and stamped pretty easily across all the nails.

For the ring finger, I grabbed the lower left hand corner design. This one….stamps kind of temperamentally. I didn’t want to take any chances so I decided stamp until I picked up the image as perfectly as I could, applied topcoat to the stamper then once dry pressed the image onto my nail to get the image to transfer perfectly. I cleaned up the edges and excess polish then topped it all with Seche Vite and was pretty pleased with the final result!

A day later, I decided to try a matte top coat and while I kind of liked the result, I way preferred the glossy finish over the matte (for once). Pardon this photo, between the matte top coat and different lighting, the color looks just a shade darker. In the end I reached for my Seche Vite bottle and went back to a glossy finish.

Are you guys sweater weather fans? Do winters even allow sweater weather where you guys live?

That’s all for this week, thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. This is gorgeous and would look perfect with what I’m wearing to Indie Shop on Saturday! I may have to do this tomorrow depending on what draws my attention in my stash.
