Nails of the day: Autumn Aztec

Sticking with the autumn theme, today’s nails are a beautiful dark red with a white Aztec accent nail. I used Essie’s thigh high as it is the perfect autumnal shade. Again these nails are super easy and quick to recreate, with just 3 simple steps:

Step 1
Using Essie’s thigh high I painted two coats. I absolutely love this polish and what is great about it, is that the more coats you apply, the darker it becomes.

Step 2
To create the Aztec design on the ring finger, I used my white nail art pen and then using a pic from Pinterest as inspiration I created this design:

You just need to draw a few different shapes to create this look, firstly draw the thin arrows:

Then, just place a few dots in between the lines:

I just like to keep going with my white pen until I am happy with the design.

Step 3
As always the final step is locking your design in with a clear top coat. One of my favourites is the Collection Lasting Gel Colour in Crystal Clear 1.

Have you got any autumn polish shades that you love? Would be great to get some recommendations that I should try?
