Simples: Scattered Fall Foiled Abstract Nail Art

Hey stamperistas,
  Press Sample

How is everyone?  It was a quiet weekend!  I was in a lot of pain thanks to the hurricane that is battering the east coast currently.  The rain makes my legs & chest ache in ways that make it difficult for me to do more than cower in bed with ice and NSAIDs unfortunately.  However I did have time to create a few cute looks that were more fall inspired.  Generally I love the fall.  For me fall means it's time for rich golds and bold color choices.  There's so much I want to do but I know I don't have the stamina to do everything so I decided I'm definitely going to be sharing more of my nail art but not necessarily creating tutorials for everything I create.  This is something I talked about a few posts back especially for the more simple nail art I create unless its requested.  This nail art came about because I really wanted to break out my rich gold polishes that were shimmering as well as some of my Orly Satin Hues.

The Satin Hues polishes are something that I've been collecting for years.  They are no longer made but every time the fall comes around I want to break them out!  They are so pretty, but this time I wasn't able to keep the matte satin effect because of the stamping.  Since I stamped with regular polish and not stamping polish the stamping was delicate and topcoat was necessary in the extreme to prevent pattern loss.  I could have gone back and put down matte topcoat, but it doesn't have the same effect as the satin matte polish.  I don't know how to explain it but the matte effect of the Orly Satin Hues is very soft compared to most other matte polishes.  I actually had the luck to come across the satin matte topcoats on ebay a couple weeks ago in a total random find.  I'm actually fairly excited for those to arrive since I had no idea Orly had actually made a satin matte topcoat and it means that I'll finally be able to get that effect without compromising my nail art!

I don't even know how many total Orly Satin Hues exist.  I was never able to figure it out, but I desperately wish I could have them all!  Currently the color I want the most is Uniquely Satin - a dynamic royal blue satin polish.  If anyone out there has it or knows where I can find it and would be willing to part with it let a girl know!  So from one polish obsession to another how about this gold foil polish from Sally Hansen?  Its a few years out from release but still is so bloody brilliant!  Also every single polish from this collection also stamps!  The combo of UberChic Beauty abstracts and foil was absolutely purrrrfect ;)

So what do you think?  Pretty and simple.  Right now I'm feeling semi-skittle mani's for some reason.  This look was really my first look of the fall season.  I also finally had my first PSL of the season.  I started looking at Halloween decor too! Lol, but with that thinking this weekend may be a good time to do my favorites for Halloween post so that people can have time to peruse and buy before October gets around.  Honestly I can't believe its already the 18th.  Insanity!  In any case thanks for reading and I'll see you next post

P.S.  If you would like a tutorial for this nail art leave a request in my comments otherwise I'm moving on with my next look!
