My tribute to Fall

Today I wanted to do a fall colors mani.  I just love this time of year with the colder weather and the breathtaking colors of the leaves.  It just makes me happy.  It tells me winter is coming and I just love the cold and the snow.  Yes I am in the wrong state for cold and snow-but my heart is still in New York where I was born and raised.

I realized that I hadn't done any Joe Fresh in awhile. Thanks to Oreo, I get to enjoy this Canadian brand. Thanks, girlfriend!!  So for today's fall theme, I thought I'd start with Mocha.

Of course, the silly bottle shot has fallen leaves in it to go with the day's theme.


Joe Fresh Mocha is a light brown with golden shimmer in it.  I have to say, I just love this formula. Plus, I like a stiffer brush like this one.  Yes it can lead to dragging, but for me, I have almost perfect application and little clean up with a stiffer brush. Here are your indoor and outdoor shots.

This color is very similar to China Glaze Ingrid and Bettina #195.  Both of which I have because I am a brown polish junkie!  Next I stamped with XL plate A and Julep Sienna, which is a gold metallic.  On top of that, I stamped leaves with BM04 and red special polish.  Finished it off with my funky french.  Here are the results.

What's cool about this to me is that in the sun, the red leaf really stands out but inside the gold stamp seems to stand out more.  I think that's pretty cool.  I think these colors are perfect for fall, they remind me of the turning leaves.

Any thoughts on this?  Are you loving the double stamp or not?
