The Life Tree - Freehand Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing today? I hope you will have a lovely weekend! Tomorrow all the guys are out playing darts so I will probably spend my morning cleaning and getting things done before enjoying a nice peaceful afternoon painting.

Today I have a manicure that might look a bit weird... So I need you to click *this* pin from pinterest to see what I was 'trying' to create. I think unless you see the inspiration you may be confused at what you are looking at... Hah! Always a great way to start when you have to explain your nail art :'D


For this manicure I began with two coats of Catrice's 'George Blueny' and layered on top Sally Hansen's  'Mermaid Tale'. Once this was completely dry I moved onto my acrylic paints, I started by trying to create a sort of one stroke arch along the top of my nails. I added blobs for countries/land and then added 'the life tree' in front. I finished with a few stars (where I could) and added some glitter with Barry M's 'VIP'. I finished it all off with two coats of Catrice top coat.

What do you think of this manicure, do you think it looks like the inspiration picture? Have you ever created some earthy nail art?
Have a beautiful day!
Love
Ithi

  1. It's gorgeous Ithi! You really don't need to see the inspiration picture to know what you painted, you did a great job! I love the pink colours of the tree vs. the dark colours :)
