It’s my favorite time of year! I absolutely love when all the fall polish collections start coming out…something about the dark rich colors makes me so excited for colder weather. China Glaze sent me their fall collection, Street Regal, to check out and I love it! It has a great mix of dark typical fall colors (reds, nudes, plums) but also has some unusual colors like the ones shown here!
I started with a base of Street Style Princess (grey) and Truth is Gold (gold). Once that dried I did a dry brush technique using Just a Little Embellishment (turquoise), Born to Rule (blue), and gold. If you aren’t familiar with this technique…it’s just as its sounds! You wipe off most of the polish on your brush, and lightly drag it across the nail. I chose to do it in different directions, but it looks really cool all over the nail too! I then used nail glue to adhere the studs.
Once it was complete, I used a top coat over the entire nail (studs included) to seal everything in. Typically when using embellishments I prefer to use gel so they stay put, but I found that using nail glue and top coat to seal keeps them on as long as your nail polish stays on!
Who else loves fall nail polish colors? Let me know which collections you’re looking forward to in the comments!
