Landscape Nail Art: Fall in the Snowy Range

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I have some nail art that I am so excited to share with you. Fall in Wyoming is a gorgeous time of year. The problem is that it doesn't last very long. I wanted to recreate some of that blue mountain water and the Aspen foliage.

I started off with a base color of OPI Aspen Snow to make the colors stand out more. The sky is OPI No Room for the Blues. The rest of the landscape was created with acrylic paint.

I can't really explain how I completed this as it changed directions at least 10 times while I was creating it. But I am tickled with the end result. I do need to go back and get some more of the tinge from the acrylic paints off my cuticles though.

Let's take a look. For these swatches I used HK Girl to add gloss and seal in the design.

Then I mattified it by using China Glaze Matte Magic. I normally prefer glossy finishes, but this really makes the details pop out even more.

One thing about nail art... never be afraid to try anything. You may just be surprised at what you can create. I got the basic idea from Keratin Canvas and went from there.

  2. Lovely! I love how you got the water to be water and the sky to be sky. Blue is really hard to work with. This must have taken ages to do.

  5. The greater part of the general population working in the domain of planning and building gardens, aside from the open air janitors who often go under the name of 'landscapers' and the mammoth contracting firms, are committed people who live and breath gardens.glandscapingandmore.com
