Creative musings in bright colors


Now this art, I am proud of. I have tried to do Christmas tree ornaments before, and they always failed rather badly. These however, totally worked.

The design (especially the branches!) was inspired by @phenomenail. The base was a mess of nude and slightly shimmer colors because I really don’t own a pale-pinkish-yellow base. I should probably get one! I do like how the base nude color ended up looking though!

The branches were a pain to paint, but completely worth it. I actually wore this when looking for a wedding photographer and the woman we ended up with loved it! Is it sad that one of my criteria for choosing people is “do they notice my nails”? I feel like it is, but if they are unobservant I likely don’t want to work with them I suppose.

  1. This is very lovely – the colors are perfect and the design is balanced and really exactly right, i think.
    Maybe you chose the photographer because you both agreed on the art aspect of your actions; isn’t that what you want in “making memories?”
    So when is the Happy Event taking place, after you get your degree and move on to your “real life?” I wish you all best luck as you move through the stages of happy, happier and happiest!!!
    And may this new year be on that track, in peace and good health!

  2. Your nails turned out beautiful! I love the branches and all the intricate detailing in this manicure.

    Awesome! May I ask if you paint your own nails or are they false ones? You must have such a steady hand, I just couldn’t do anything like these.

    • My own nails! Thats why (if you scroll through) the lengths tend to change. I’ve been doing this for 3.5 years, and I promise I would not have been able to do this at the beginning. I’m glad you liked them!!
