The Digital Dozen does Whimsy - Seasons tree art

Day 3 of Whimsy and the idea for this nail art has been in the back of my mind for quite a while.  It's funny, cause a few of the other DD ladies have also done whimsical trees for this weeks prompt too. 

This nail art is inspired by those four panel seasons paintings.  I'm somewhat happy with the final look, but it took quite a while to achieve on all ten nails. Doing the gradients in different colours was slow to start with. Then I painted the tree branches using a few shades of brown polish.  Then I went crazy with a dotting tool.  

I was actually happier with how I painted my right hand! Isn't that ridiculous. I used a smaller dotting tool on my right hand and did less dots and it looked better because you could see the tree branches clearer. I have included a photo of my rarely seen Cinderella hand down the bottom.  Sadly the photography is not great because for the life of me I can't work out how to hold a bottle for a nail shot with my right hand. Is anyone else like that or just me.  I'm completely awkward when trying to photograph my right hand, and am what my mum would call 'cacky handed' I believe that one is an Australia colloquial term.


  1. I'm with ya. I can't photograph my right hand for the life of me. Luckily, your left hand looks AWESOME!

  2. I love your trees! We use cack-handed in the UK too :)

  3. Wow, these are amazing! You did a great job photographing your right hand too haha!

  4. Gorgeous! I've always liked this art work.
