Fall into Autumn: Autmn Ombre/Gradient

Hello again lovelies!!!!!
I decided to do the second challenge post right away as im sooooo excited for this one!!! I'm soo in love with the mani, it turned out better then what I had hoped!!!!!
I saw an awesome tutorial on YouTube by Robin Moses called Love Birds , I decided to use her tutorial for this manicure but not to do the birds and to bring the leaves and branches further up the nails. My goal was to make it look like falling leaves but to use all the colors of the rainbow like Robin did.
I started out with 2 coats of Barry M Nude as the base. I must say I love this color, its nice and sheer and matches my skin tone!!!!! I couldn't stop starring at it and it was only a nude!!!
Since I used so much for this manicure Ill break it down by hand :) I did use a mix of brown and black acrylic paint for the branches.
For the left hand I used the following :
China Glaze Hey Sailor
China Glaze Riveting
China Glaze Orange You Hot
Julep Hayden
Julep Blake
China Glaze Electric Pineapple
Acrylic Paints
For the right hand I used the following:
OPI Who The Shrek Are You
China Glaze Entourage
China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise
China Glaze Frostbite
China Glaze Tempest
Julep Anne
Acrylic Paints
Now sorry for the picture spam of the nails!!!!! I took soo many pictures and narrowed it down to 6 pictures out of about 40!!
 I am so in love with this, Robin does a great tutorial and made it soo easy to recreate. Ill definatly be keeping this on for a while, but I do have other manis saved up to show you guys later on in the week so stay tuned :)
