26 Great Nail Art Ideas – Autumn

Today's post is going up a little late. My baby girl has had a few minor health issues and that's gotten me a bit behind on posting. Although these were done a week ago! At any rate for today's New Crumpet Nail Art challenge the theme was Autumn.  This was a perfect chance for me to use some of my new Zoya colors for a smooshy marble manicure.  I had been wanting to try this technique for awhile and it came out pretty cool for a first go round but it definitely could use a tweak or two! Please check out the other ladies art work below!! :)

26 Great Nail Art Ideas – Dotting Tools but not just dots!

Today I have a challenge mani for you! I jumped back in (pretty late in the game) to the New Crumpets Nail Tarts challenge.  It's been a struggle for me to find a balance now that I have a brand new daughter and I'm slowly able to make a little more time for nail art so I thought I'd try and push myself a bit with the challenge.  How far I'll get with it is anyone's guess, especially since I start back up at work again in a few days (yuck!) but I hope to complete it and start another one!  So anyway todays prompt is "Dotting tools but not just dots."  For this manicure I used all Essie colors. I first polished my nails white and then I added some dots to the tip with my dotting too and swirled them around to get a fun pattern. I used tape to section off the portion where I wanted the swirl. Then I went over it with some flakies because why not? I had lots of fun with this one! Be sure to check out the links below to see more fun looks made with dotting tools! :)

Colors used for this look are all by Essie:
Highest Bidder, Art Nu-beau, Muse Myself and Blanc
