Quick NOTW Post: Maroon Fall Leaves

Hello friends! It's starting to get chilly here already and the trees are turning beautiful shades of orange, yellow and red. It's absolutely magnificent. One of my favourite memories as a child were the long road trips that my family and I took to see forests of beautiful leaves. Once, we even took a ferry down a river, and the view was breathtaking.  It's something we haven't done in years because of me being so far away for university. Every year, I do designs with leaves because of how much I love autumn.
Due to my my upcoming assignments and midterm exams, I didn't have time to do a more detailed design. Despite not having any colours, I wanted this design to show some movement as if the leaves were falling. Honestly, I will probably redo this design again in the future with cleaner lines.

Quick NOTW Update (Two Designs): Cute Candy Corn Nails!

Hello friends! It's October, which means it's time to get into the Halloween spirit already! To get myself into the Halloween spirit, I wanted to do some nails inspired by the holiday. Since it isn't too close to Halloween yet, I didn't want anything too spooky. Anyway, when I was coming up with the design, I thought of one of my favorite Halloween treats! It's weird, I know that a lot of people hate candy corn but I just love them! If I had an actual cob-sized amount of the stuff I could eat it all up in a second. Plus, the little kernels of candy are super adorable. 

This week I decided to something new and post two different designs in one blogpost. On my left hand, I have the cute and punny candy corn design, but n my right hand, I wanted to keep it simple so I did a glitterly ombre design. Glitter and ombres go so well together! I don't know why, but the glitter somehow pulls the ombre together.
