Fall into Autumn Challenge: Day 2 - Apples

Hello loves - I'm sorry to report that today I have another unoriginal look for you! Today's theme for the Fall into Autumn Challenge is Apples, and I found myself thinking there are only so many things you can do with apples. I've never tried anything of them though, so it turns out they're all new to me :] so I just decided the look I liked best from Google searches, and did my best to recreate them in my own way. I wanted to do one granny smith apple, one regular red, and one golden delicious!



I used Sinful Colors Innocent for the green apple, Wet n Wild I Red a Good Book for the red, and Zoya Pippa for the yellow. I used a toothpick and China Glaze Mahogany Magic for the stem, and a green striping brush by Stripe Rite for the leaves.



Ignore the mess on my pinky! I tried to recreate a core and I didn't wait long enough before putting on topcoat! :[ I did a couple coats of Avon Shimmering Sands and framed that using Sinful Colors Nail Art in Be My Valentine.

Have a good night everyone! Check out the other participants in the Fall into Autumn Challenge!
