A Leathery Gradient For Fall

Good day lovelies,
I'm finally getting into the mood for fall.  I dug into my closet and stored away my summer/spring clothes and pulled out my fall/winter clothes and boots. I even purchased a few infinity scarves to accessorize my wardrobe. Actually, I bought more than a few scarves, (Burlington has a nice selection, great prices too).  But I won't get into that. (Can't go over my budget, I still have tuition to pay.) Of course, I had to pick up a few polishes as well. I've been really impressed with the Sinful Colors brand lately. You can't beat the price. I find myself reaching for those over my beloved Zoya and China Glaze. Often you'll find Sinful Colors in top 10 or top 15 lists of best polishes.

When I pulled out a few of my new fall Sinful Colors polishes, I couldn't decide which ones to use. So I settled on a gradient design so that I could use three. I didn't go for the cuticle to tip gradient, or side to side gradient. Instead, I went for a center to edge design that gives an aged look, or the illusion of shadows. Since I used earth tones, it kind of reminds me of old leather.  I threw in a couple of leaves for good measure.

Here's what I used.

Tomorrow I'll have a similar design. I want to try this technique again. Any suggestions on colors?
Ciao for now.
