Autumn Theme Week Day 1 - Autumn Pond Manicure ♥

Nothing to Disclose

I am joining in on Autumn Theme Week with some other amazing bloggers and for Day 1 I have an Autumn Pond Manicure! 

Post continued after the jump!

I have done "Pond Manicures" before, except with stamps (calling them "Stampwiches").  This was my first time attempting one freehand and I am very happy with how it turned out! I don't get a lot of time to practice freehand nail art but I'm really starting to enjoy trying to enjoy it more so I might have to start trying to squeeze it in more often!  If you are unsure of how to do a Pond Manicure you can follow this tutorial my friend Jacki did over at Adventures in Acetone! You basically alternate layering a jelly polish with nail art of your choice.

Before I get to the rest of the photos of my manicure, I have to ask a question. Am I the only one who thinks of Amelia Pond whenever I hear the word "pond?" I'm certain there are a lot of other Whovians who do the same, right? ;)

I used The Nail Junkie Orange as my base and the leaves were done with SinfulSHINE Mirror, Mirror and Devious, Cult Nails Ay Poppy and Elevation Polish Xixabangma.

Have you tried a Pond Manicure? I used to hate jelly polishes but I am loving them lately, especially for using them in this way. I am excited for the rest of Autumn Week!
