Hi Fellas, before we have lovely outburst of spring and colors ; I did an autumn/fall mani . Yes, this is the weather now in Mumbai. I happened to see this image on a wallpaper and wanted to have them on my nails for long!! And finally I got them on my nails after 3-4 months of procastination 🙂
(Upadate : I did a Spring Flower Nail Art by the time, I posted this one 😛 😛 I know I Lazy Lazy)
Somehow this time, the clicks are not very great. The camera has not done justice to the design. And to add to it, I couldnot manage to get picture of both hands which looked adorable together 🙁 🙁 .
I have used ‘Laminate’ from ‘Envy’ shade for base color. It is a great canvas color for any design 🙂 . Then I sponged a little bit of brown on my nail tips to get that earthy and dusty feel, you know so that the trees seem connected to the ground. To get both the colors of trees I used brown acrylic paint as base. For the lighter shade of tree , I mixed white to brown. While I added black to other lot of brown acrylic paint to get trees of darker hue. Then with a fine nail art brush I kept drawing random straign lines of unique lenghts. To get the twigs and leaves, I again used the fine brush. And finally sealed them with a top coat 🙂
If you notice, there are few leaves on trees and also few leaves are in space falling. Well , I have not faired well on the last part (few leaves are in space falling) but I have tried to convey the message. The drawing, scanty twigs, woods and leaves paired with the dusty brown color scheme has brought out a nice rustic feel. I am not sure if I am just blabbering my imaginatiom or I am making sense :P.
Well, I hope you like it. If you do, please leave your comments..its kinna lonely on my new blog 🙁
