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.

  1. The trees look real! I think that duochrome makes a great base color too 🙂

  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?
