Tone on Tone Fall Stamping

Happy Friday my loves!!! I've been wanting to try different kinds of nail art lately but when it comes down to it, I'm still a stamping junkie at heart. I am a huge fan of stamping - it's easy, the finished product looks great and there are countless awesome stamping plates out there with fun patterns. I haven't updated my stamping plate collection in awhile but I need to soon because there are so many great ones that have come out lately.

I figured I'd do another fall-ish manicure for today because, well, I flipping love fall. Just warning you all now, get ready for a TON of orange polishes to come in the next month or so. Orange is one of my favorite polish colors and plus with fall starting and Halloween just around the corner, I can't get enough of it! I love tone-on-tone stamping looks, which is patterns stamped in the same color family as the base color. It manages to be subtle but with a bit of a twist. Tone-on-tone designs are the perfect way to wear nail art to the office because from far away it looks like your average mani but up close it's a party on your nails!

I started out this manicure with 2 coats of Joe Fresh Pumpkin. This was gifted to me by my lovely twitter friend Caitlin. Joe Fresh is a Canadian clothing store that also has a fantastic line of nail polish. Joe Fresh Pumpkin is THE PERFECT PUMPKIN COLOR. Sadly, my camera wonks out with oranges but Pumpkin is a bit more yellow than pictured here. Imagine the exact color of pumpkin puree and that is the color of this polish. It's absolute perfection in a bottle. I stamped over it with Kleancolor Metallic Orange, which is the most amazing metallic orange color you will ever see. If you're new around here, I have a serious obsession with Kleancolor Metallic polishes. They are amazingly pigmented and great for stamping as well!

So here's 2 coats of Joe Fresh Pumpkin stamped with Kleancolor Metallic Orange. Enjoy!




What do you guys think?

Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you all tomorrow!!

  2. OOOoh I love this mani and I'm obsessed with fall too!!! Every time I go somewhere to pick up polish, I always end up picking up polishes out of the same color family which results in a lot of similar colors but I love them! Plus it makes it an easier decision since I can narrow it down to a "fall color" :-)
