2 Fall-Inspired Nail Designs featuring Zoya Ignite and Entice and a Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! I'm totally switched into fall mode now and I'm craving darker colors, duo/multichromes, and glitters, so don't be surprised if you see a good bit of these things worked into my upcoming posts. I'm sure I will have a small summer relapse before it's all said and done, but fall is on my brain!

I was really inspired when Zoya's Ignite and Entice Collections hit my doorstep because all of the colors were so harmonious. Around the same time, I received a stamping plate in the mail from Born Pretty Store with this wonderful brocade design, and I knew immediately what I was going to do with it. For this first mani, I started with skittles of Zoya's Ignite Collection (thumb-pinky I used India, Sansa, Autumn, Remy, and Teigen). Then I used a gold metallic polish (Face It Platinum Nails GL111) and Born Pretty Store stamping plate QA90 for the design. I thought this mani was totally lush and decadent!


Here is a closer look at the Born Pretty Store stamping plate QA90. As you can see it has some brocade and arabesque looking patterns that are very elegant. I found that it stamped very crisp/clean images and appears to be well etched all around. A lovely addition to my plate collection!

A really easy nail art look that you can do without fancy tools is a dotticure. I really like random dotticures with a mixture of large and small dots because they are easy to do and I love the look of them. For this mani I used Zoya Nyssa from the Entice Collection as my base and then used larger and smaller ends of my dotting tools to makes the random dots using Zoya Sansa, India, Teigen, and Autumn from the Ignite Collection. Note that you could also use a bobby pin for the small dots and a pearl headed pin for the large dots if you don't have dotting tools. These colors together make me think of fall leaves and I love the sparkle against the creme base.

The Zoya Entice and Ingnite Collections are now available for pre-order on Zoya's website (they retail for $9 each), and they will soon be available where Zoya is sold in your area (I always find them at Ulta locally). Also be sure to follow Zoya on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Be sure to check out Born Pretty Store for all of your nail art supply needs (you can use my coupon code JCX31 for 10% off your order).  I've always had great experiences with ordering from them at very reasonable prices. Also, you can't beat free worldwide shipping! You can also follow Born Pretty Store on Facebook and Instagram.

So what do you think of these designs? Are you ready to dive into fall like me? Thanks for looking everyone!
