Pine Trees in the Snow

Hi all! For once, I am showing you nails that I am actually wearing. I painted these last night. They are my entry for the first week of the Nail Polish Canada nail art competition!

I started with a base of two coats of OPI Just Spotted the Lizard. It is a beautiful bronze-gold-green-blue duochrome. I am REALLY on a duochrome kick right now! Unfortunately, this polish bubbled a bit for me. But I still like it!

I then went ahead and painted on trees, highlighted them with a lighter green, and added lots of snow.

There is something oddly awesome about these nails, probably involving the color shift of the background! It looks like a hazy sunset in the snow, or darkness depending on the light. Love.

  5. These are amazing! And you’re right, the base you chose makes them sooo interesting and original, love it !
    Seriously, beautiful. I didn’t think you can make snowy trees unique.
    Btw, don’t you loathe the mini OPI brush?
