Autumn Theme Challenge

So as some of you are aware, me and a few girls from Twitter decided to start a Challenge each month,I'm proud to be involved in this Polish Party group and I've loved seeing everyone's designs, so I give you my design for the theme: Autumn.

I really wanted to make my nails as textured as I could, but it didn't quite go to plan. Originally I intended on using an actual leaf for one of the nails to add texture and to be a bit different, but when I went to look for one, I couldn't find one that wasn't soaking wet, or the Autumn reds and oranges I was looking for. So when that idea went out of the window I replaced it with striping as I had always intended on using water marbling for the accent nail, and a caviar effect on the middle finger. 
I just HAD to have an Owl on my thumb nail, what's more Autumn than an Owl? It isn't the best looking owl, but I was getting frustrated with it so it got left how it turned out!
I used a sponging technique for my baby nail so I could incorporate all of the colours I would associate with Autumn.

The colours used for this design are all Barry M: Mango, Bright Red, Limited Edition Yellow, Foil Effects Gold, Matte Mocha (From the new A/W range), White, and Teal.
