Glittering Autumn Ombre…

I’ll just Leaf this here. Try not to Fall for them too hard.

Here’s a nice serving of Autumny goodness to kick off the week – or to get into the Spring action… for all us Southern-Hemi-Raptors. I would make a Pumpkin Pie reference, but we don’t really have “P.Pie” here – we’re more inclined to put it in a salad this time of year. #Straya #SaladPride

I really am not one for darker greens, plumbs and purples – especially when they’re all mixed together. This is, however, the exception and that’s probably due to the addition of glitter ombre. You know me with glitter I. Love. That. Stuff. More. Than. Anything. Excluding. Watermelon.

My Mother-Raptor is very much into the Plumb tones, the amount of itchy torture devices sweaters/jumpers I was subjected to … was nearly diabolical. Imagine a small creature, passively itching and rocking to the sound of its own tears.

As I’m a Nerd the official Equation for the above situation problem is Nanna-Raptor = soft wool / Mother-Raptor = steel wool. There is a difference – probably where I got my pro-skills at layering clothes, due to necessity to create a barrier between smooth baby raptor scales and the demonic fibres. I can still feel it now…

Get the look – Dark Green base on Index and Middle talon, finish with a ombre pull effect from the cuticle – I used 3 different glitters; 1 forest green hexagonal with 2 fine AB in light green/lime to patch the gaps. Pinky and Thumb talon in Dark Plumb, with a Brown glitter ombre pull effect from the cuticle. Finish with a feature talon over a clear base – with a ombre pull effect from the tip; I again used 3 different glitters; 1 magenta hexagonal with 2 fine AB in light pink/purple to patch the gaps.

Love this look – ADORE IT! There’s movement when your just doing your thang because of all the glitter. Colours used are fairly subdued for my normal selections unless you’re really focusing on the glitter detailing – it’s wearable and appeals to a much greater consumer base – as the colours are not “Hello Kitty on an Acid Trip Chic”!

I do love some Fall - time to recoup, restock and ... re-purchase less snugger clothing.

So what you think, Darling?

What’s your experiences with Autumn/Fall colours, are you a colour blocker or a layer-upper-a – like Moi?
