FiA#9 Fall Ombre

Ahhh I'm falling behind! I've also run out of posts in the last week. Haven't painted my nails due to exams and papers and the TSSU, which I am part of (TA's student union) is going on strike and blahblahblah - it's just so stressful x_x This weekend was the first day I had some downtime. My last thing to do before Thursday is catch up on my psychology class for a midterm... Anyway, enough about me!

FALL. Fall colours are red, orange, yellow, gold, all those warm colours that make you think of hot drinks and blankets. I lined 'em up and picked some out. Looking at these, I knew what I wanted to end with.

Can you guess?
 From left to right: China Glaze Fast Track, KleanColor Bright Gold, Tivoli NP055, Julep Zoe and China Glaze Harvest Moon.

Surprisingly, this worked out rather well. I'm surprised because some of those colours look REAL close to each other but there's still an obvious progression. I'm getting better at this! =D

  1. Reminds a bit of the ombre of leaves on the ground. They are really close color-wise, but yet different. Pretty polishes!

    1. Thank you! Before I put them on I was worried they were too close or too far from each other. I'm glad it worked out =D Now I just need to pick a sweater and I'll be caught up >_<

  2. This is super pretty Sharra!! I definitely agree with you - I can see a lot of improvement in your posts! Awesome swatches and photos <3

  3. These are totally beautiful, Sharra! So fiery and so perfect for autumn. :D

    1. Thank you!! I was definitely imagining caramel and fireplaces when I was picking the colour family =D
