Fall Leaves Gradient Nail Art
Some press samples featured

I wore my first sweater dress last week and I knew Fall was officially here! It was rainy, windy, but kind of muggy. Typical Vancouver weather that is often surprising for people who move out here. Sure, the temperature is mild, but the constant wetness really gets to people! I have gotten used to it, but I don't necessarily enjoy it as it makes mornings REALLY hard to get up for. I have enjoyed delving into the Fall nail polishes that have come out and this is probably the one beauty area that I have consistently blogged about while all other beauty products have fallen to the wayside. Cosmetic Proof did begin as a nail polish blog so I guess it makes sense that at its core, if I only have time and energy to do one thing it would be nails! This year, there have been a number of collections that have caught my eye and I have been trying my best to wear them ALL for you!
The Sally Hansen x Sesame Street collection was one I couldn't resist buying on my own and though I didn't pick up the entire collection (some of the glitters were nice, but not shades I would wear more than once), I did pick up four awesome shades. I have already worn Up to Snuff and now I am wearing Oscar the Grouch's colour - Scram! I don't normally do metallic finishes, but this one I had to have!

Fall Leaves Gradient Nail Art

I layered on a fall leaves gradient using some nail vinyls from Whatsup Nails and sponged on a gradient using two shades from the new Bio Sculpture African Sunset Collection! Golden Hour is a deep brownish-yellow with white undertone that compliments all skin tones and is inspired by the warmth of Africa. Sunset Red is glorious deep, red with an orange-brown undertone that again looks great on all skin tones and is inspired by the African sunset.
