Glitter Gradient with OPI With A Nice Finn-ish and Ciate All Aglow

YAY FOR FALL! YAY FOR FALL!  I really do love summer and all...but I really do love fall colors more on my nails.  And I am surprising myself by actually trying and loving colors I previously would have balked at. Although it is still bright and sunny where I live, which my camera is thankful for.

Today I have on OPI With A Nice Finn-ish, a warm coppery shimmer, and Ciate All Aglow, a dense gold and copper glitter.  With A Nice Finn-ish is a bit brushstoke-y, and improved only a little after using Fashion Polish's technique of applying a matte top coat underneath the shiny top coat, but it is so pretty that I didn't mind.  I'm SO happy I finally figured out how to utilize All Aglow for a great mani, because it was sitting in my untrieds drawer since last Christmas.

In fact, I have gone through all my untrieds and there are a bunch of colors that will be perfect for autumn, I can't wait to use them all!

I am going back to simple nail art for a while, and boy does it make me happier than spending hours on my nails because I had to redo half of them.  This glitter gradient is foolproof, you just start building up glitter near the cuticle and then drag the brush when it's a bit drier towards the tip of your nail in random lines.  Kinda looks like the glitter is fading out or dripping.  I also used my fingers to flatten the glitter if it got too clumpy.  So easy and beautiful and sparkly.

What are your favorite fall nail polish colors?
