At the very beginning of the Autumnal season, I posted a picture of my auburn manicure on my Instagram account.
A follower asked me to make a tutorial of it, as it was a bit more elaborated than a simple coat of nail polish. I didn´t think think too seriously about it, as I have little experience on the tutorial-art-land. However, I have been asked repetedly since then, so I finally decided to give it a chance.
I hope you will find it helpful!
First remarkable thing about this tutorial is my choice of products.
Although I appreciate high end brands, I like to give a chance to small or more modest companies now and then.
For this manicure I used Gabrini´s Multivitamin Deep Chocolate, their Base coat, and a random off brand metallic red, (any metallic red will make it, so choose whatever you fancy).
Please, remember you will need to let every layer to dry up before you apply the next one.
Step one: apply a coat of your metallic red WITHOUT any base coat underneath.
You are wearing several layers, so base coat is not required at this point.
Make sure your paint is even, as this will affect the final result.
Step two: now it is time for a bit of top coat.
Applying the product now will add some iridescent undertones to the final look, as well as providing a better base for next coat.
Step three: Apply a final thin coat of deep chocolate/brown and let it dry.
As the last layer is covering a thick and heavy amount of varnish, it can take a few minutes. Try to be patient and careful at this point,

Well, that was it! A little and not too complicated tutorial for my first time.
I truly hope you found it of some help!
So tell me darlings, what new tutorials have you been trying lately?
