First Fall Nail Design of the Season... : Decosse's Dynamite Doodles

First Fall Nail Design of the Season...

by Lisa Decosse on 10/21/12

I've finished my first nail design for the fall season.  I call it 'Autumn Art'.  It is inspired by a design from 'Nail Polish Wars Blogspot' (sorry but I don't remember the website address because I wrote the idea down my nail book a few weeks ago). 

It is a pretty simple design.  I only had a couple of hours to complete it earlier tonight (well technically it is now yesterday since it is 2:30 am).  October 21st is the 25th anniversary of the day my husband and I started going out.  So, while I didn't have much time to do something special with my nails, I couldn't just leave them bare since we'll be going out for supper. 

Just divide each nail into three triangular shapes.  Paint each section a different fall colour (make sure you use a good base coat first).  In this design I've used a deep green, a beige and a rusty-copper tone.  After a couple coats of each colour so that they are solid looking, apply two coats of a gold flecked glitter to give it a bit of a sparkle.  Add two coats of a good topcoat and you are done.  And for a closer look:

I hope to add some of my previous designs to my nail gallery over the next couple months but I'll always post here as well to let you know when pics have been added.

Until next time,

Yes, I would love to have long nails like you have too! They are beautiful!!! My daughter has long strong nails, but she didn't inherit them from me. :-(

This is site is just getting underway.  Please excuse the mess.  Check back often for updates.  It is not built up very much because I'm just getting ready for a challenge in Oct.  Little by little, it will get there!

Less than 10 days into my blogging career and I'm already having to change how I do things. 

If you have been a previous visitor to this blog, you may have noticed how basic the blog is.  There are just too many things that I can't do here...

*I want to have followers--the best I can offer is a mailing list to let people know I've posted something new.
*I want to add a field in the comments section for people to add their email address and/or website address if they want--can't do that.
*I had someone request that I turn of 'word verification' because she was afraid that I would lose out on a lot of comments otherwise--can't do that either.
*There is no way to create a post archive.
*There is no way to do a search within my blog.
*There is no way to create labels to make it easier for people to navigate through the site.

And the list goes on...

Due to issues with the basic features of the blog component of this website, I have relocated my blog to BloggerTM.  This website will remain so that I still have a place to keep my image galleries.  However, if you would like to continue to check out new posts you can now find my blog at:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come follow me in my new home!
...Designs with Distinction
Hi!  My name is Lisa and welcome to my personal website.  Whether drawing, painting, cross-stitching, card making, or doing nail art, I've been 'creating' since I was knee high to a grasshopper.  Over this past year I've really gotten into the world of card making and nail art.  I know that there are already a lot of amazingly talented card makers, digi stamp designers, and nail artists out there and I've been learning a lot from them.  I've been wanting to enter some card challenges but need a gallery to display my creations.  So, voila!  I'm finally following through on creating a personal website to share my creative endeavours with the world.
