Fall Farewell

Okay, so I didn't know what to call this post.

We find ourselves at the end of November, which is to me a time of transition right now. The weather is turning more to winter and leaving autumn behind, and I wanted some nail art to reflect that idea. Something transitional, something incorporating the aesthetics of fall and giving us a glimpse of where we're going.
Browns and reds are definitely autumnal colours, but red by itself envokes images of the upcoming festivities of Sinterklaas and Christmas.

I wanted the tape method to both reflect the 'removing' of autumn and showing us the winter, and also being reminiscent of giftwrapping!

Brown used is a Hema polish by the name number '14', and the red is Essence's '01 Beauti-Fall Red'. It's a theme-appropriate pun, double win.

Close up.
