Tree of Many Colors

This art was FUN! I love random rainbow dots! (Mostly because my dotting tool aka hairpin is my new best friend). This post was inspired by a lovely bit of art done by the now defunct cutie-cles.

The base for this art is the white slightly textured polish from the Textured Earth Tones collection by Mentality, called Spackle. You have seen Spackle in quite a few of the nail art bits I have done over the last two weeks, and now she finally get to be the star!

I went ahead and painted on a tree using the black from the collection (Asphalt) and then added leaves using most of the rest of the Textured Earth Tone polishes. It’s a party! You can see the light pink (Stucco), the dark pink (Cocciopesto), the orange (Terracotta…a full mani with her tomorrow!), the yellow/gold (Loess), the green (Illite), the blue (Kaolin), and the purple (Yi Xin).

I was very proud of myself for making all the branches line up across my nails (more or less)! Hence so many photos that don’t include my thumb.

You can also get a good idea of just how shiny these polishes look in the sun. They really do look almost like satin. It isn’t a smooth glossy finish (obviously), but there is still a smoothness to them that true matte polishes lack. I’ll have a comparison post for you guys on Thursday with real textured/smooth matte/glossy/these guys.

Hope you enjoyed! If you loved the lovely white of Spackle (and really, it is a FUN polish…my boyfriend told me it looks like the thick textured paper used for Asian-style calligraphy, so now I want to do some MORE awesome art with it!), you can pick it up here for $6.75. The rest of the collection can be found here. And don’t forget, free US shipping!
