Leafing Halloween Alone!

I only need to look at my feed on any social media to know that the nail community is obsessed with Halloween this month. I see Halloween manis everywhere but I have to admit they are pretty awesome and it's hard not to be inspired. At the same time I've already done 2 festive designs and wasn't really feeling it again. I'm kind of into gradients these days so I decided to have a go at this beige-to-burgundy one that doesn't scream Halloween at all...

Either way this is my favourite gradient ever! I used Bourjois Rouge Obscur, NYC Park Avenue and Golden Rose  I wasn't sure if beige and burgundy on their own wouldn't be too harsh so I added a light brown in between. I think it made the blending a bit easier and smoother looking. I had this 'wind swept leaves' idea brewing in my mind for ages and finally I made it happen!

I added a few leaves from MoYou London Mother Nature 07 plate in an attempt to make this design season related but I'm not sure I succeeded haha! I think it just looks creepy! I love it though especially with a matte top coat. I think it brings out the leaves a bit more. Which one do you prefer?
