Creative musings in bright colors

Autumn Trees

Today I present, for your viewing pleasure, another color changing polish. The polish is named ‘Zen Garden’, so I wanted to create something outdoorsy with it! Hence, a tree.


The color change in this polish is not nearly as marked as in the last one I showed you. Zen Garden shifts from a grey-purple to a grey-brown. Both colors are pretty, but I had to pay attention to notice much of a change! However, the formula on this was really nice, two easy even coats.


I was going to paint a different tree on each nail (as I have done before), but I decided to paint one tree stretching across multiple nails, a-la-Kayla Shevonne (Side note: look at her art if you haven’t before, her creations are BEAUTIFUL!) I put little tiny fall leaves on mine as well!


My stroke of genius was the thumb. I can never figure out what to do with my thumb! Then it hit me: tree roots. I’m pretty proud of that.



  • Purple/brown: Ruby Wing – Zen Garden
  • Brown: Maybelline – Downtown Brown
  • Orange: Sinful Colors – Courtney Orange
  • Yellow: Spoiled – Mind Your Own Beeswax
  • Green: Zoya – Holly


Thus begins my (probably sporadic) posting of fall nail designs! Enjoy!

  1. Lovely! I can never figure out what to do with my thumb either, that’s why it’s always missing. I’ve started to worry in case people think I don’t have one or it’s really weird or something.

    • hahahaha! I get the feeling that MOST people don’t show their thumb. I usually try to come up with something cool to put on mine, so I do tend to show it. I think your way might be more standard :-p

  2. absolutely stunning. Love love love.

  3. Incredible mani! Sooo jealous of your painting skills. 😉

  4. This is so cool! You have the best ideas! 😀

  5. Looks sooooo cool in the sun!
    Love all these colours ❤

  6. This is brilliant!!
    I love how the tree continues on each nails and, well, I like autumn colours so much 😀
    Have a great day
