Hi Girls, Me and My blog are all in winter mood these days. As mentioned earlier, Mumbai is experiencing NO drop in temperature. We are still using air conditioners to get some sleep at night.
Now, this winter when I did Dream Catcher, I am glad I came to know the meaning and relevance of it. This is my thing, I can never do a nail art on any subject/theme without relating to it or understanding it. I can never do a nail art without connecting to it. And in the attempt to connect, I always do some reading on every theme I do. I can’t paint it, if I can’t imagine it.
So I did some reading on why acorns is related to winters and here is why.It is said that the amount and size of the acorns falling from the mighty oak tree predict the coming winter’s fury.This folklore dates back hundreds of years. The idea is that nut & fruit producing trees know what type of weather is coming months before it hits. If the trees sense a harsh winter is on the way, they then produce an over abundance of fruit and nuts.
So now with a peaceful mind I did this nail art after knowing about Acorns.This nail art is inspired by Maria from TheCottonSugar (http://instagram.com/thecottonsugar).
I used Envy – Laminate for the base. The Acorns are all hand painted with acrylic paints.
I want to be modest but I am happy with my work. Its neat and pretty. Sorry for self praise but I think it looks good.
What do you think? Do you guys like the Acorns? Please share your love in form of comments 🙂
