Digital Dozen Does Nature: Day One

Monday, March 9, 2015


It's another Digit-al Dozen week. The Digit-al Dozen is a small group of diverse nail art bloggers that post nail art inspired by a new monthly theme for five days in a row. You can find us blogging away the second week of each month!

This month's theme is Nature. I am loving this theme. It means I get to create some floral and landscape nail art. I realize there are lots of other things that could fit into this category. But I was excited to do something I love.

This mountain scene was created with Elevation Polish and acrylic paint. I used Elevation Lake of the Isles for the sky and Bohai Sea for the water. The gray in the mountains were created using Thracian Sea. I used acrylic paints for the rest of it. White acrylic paint applied with a QTip made the fluffy clouds.

I hear so many people say they can never create intricate nail art. Well, yes you can. Landscapes and florals are oh-so-forgiving. Mine aren't perfect - and they never will be. To create a landscape scene, simply break it into sections. One element at a time.

I used a top coat of HK Girl to seal it in and protect the nail art.

  10. You're right about landscapes being more forgiving - you have less space so you can abstract them more. You did a great job and that Elevation polish complements the design perfectly.
