Fall Braided Mani

Good morning everyone! How has your weekend been? Mine has been totally hectic, balancing work and three midterms in the upcoming week is stressful. Today I have a manicure that I was really excited about, I wore this for half of last week, which is a pretty long time for me. I know some people are tired of seeing indie brands that aren't always easy to get your hands on so I wanted to do some nail art for you, because I know a lot of you follow my blog for that reason!
I chose some colours that don't traditionally go together, but still give off a nice fall vibe. I used OPI Don't Talk Bach to Me from the recent Germany collection, as well as OPI Diva of Geneva from the Switzerland collection from a couple years back. The grurple (gray/purple of course!) colour is Zoya Caitlin. I swear in person it looked more purple, but these photos make it look like a true gray.
I love the way these colours go together, I think braided manis are a really fun way to see how a colour scheme works.

Here we are in the shade, a little less exciting and more subdued but still pretty.

What do you think of this colour combination? Have you tried the braided mani technique yet?


  1. This is beautiful! I love the colors you chose, they really are perfect for fall =) I haven't tried a braided mani yet but I love the look!

  2. I quite like random colour combos like this, great mani! I just did my first braid mani today :)
