Autumn Week - Elevation Polish Epidote and Pumpkins!

Hi everyone! I can't believe today is already the last day of Autumn Week! I think I might be doing another couple of autumn inspired manis again soon because I still have ideas I'd like to try out!

Today I have another of the September 'Stones Throw' collection from Lulu at Elevation Polish. If you missed my post featuring The Arches II from the same collection on Monday, you can check it out here.

  Epidote is another of the shades I knew I absolutely NEEDED from this collection. Lulu describes Epidote as an 'Olive/Moss green holographic polish. It has 2 sizes of cosmetic grade holographic pigment.' The shade is inspired by the mineral/gem of the same name and its completely unique in my stash!

  Lulu recommends 2 coats of Epidote for full coverage and 3 for longer nails and best results. I actually used 2 coats for this mani and found it to be perfect. Application was easy and the formula was lovely like all my Elevations!

  Over my base, I used acrylic paints and a fine detail brush to paint pumpkins on the tips of 2 nails and then swirly branches and leaves on the others to continue the design across all of my nails.

I'm really pleased with how this mani turned out and I think its a good last one for Autumn Week!

Elevation Polish can be purchased from the Elevation Polish Store and Llarowe.
