Creative musings in bright colors

Nightfall

I love this mani. Yes, I am biased…but scenery nails are one of my favorite styles anyway, and I do them so infrequently! Mostly because they take a lot of work (the trees alone here took probably 40 minutes. I bet it would have gone faster if I was using acrylic, but alas, I stick to polish!)

The nail art was inspired by @nailsbycambria, because her’s are AWESOME. My stars are a bit larger (and honesty my nails are longer) but same idea!

I do wish I had a little more light polish at the bottom…it all got covered by the black land silhouette, so you can’t see it! I likely used one too many medium blue polishes (oops)! Live and learn. I still like it.

Hope you enjoyed! Tomorrow we get to see a take I did on the weird new “broken glass” manicure trend.

  1. I love it! I could stare all day long at your fingers… Wohoo. I wish I would be able to do something like that. Greetz, Doris from Austria

    • Haha! Thank you! It just takes practice. The only really difficult thing was the trees. Blue gradient, random black hills and stars are fairly simple!!

      • Hmm… Fairly simple…. I guess it just needs a try. And i promise, I will! Did you paint both hands, by the way (stupid question, but I’m curious…)?

      • I go off-handed, which is to say my other hand was painted but not with this design! It’s the only way to keep my blog updated so frequently (and its why if you scroll through you see that which hand is in photos alternates). I imagine the trees would be quite hard to paint with my left hand though!
