Earth Day 2013

What is irony? Drawing trees on paper…

For the Earth Day which happens to be today, I painted trees on my nails. Well, not the whole trees, just branches with green leaves :)

Earth Day green nails

Classic and pure colors of nature for the Earth friendly nail art – green, brown and yellow. I painted my nails green with Orly Green Apple (3 coats). I haven’t swatched this green yet and I doubt I ever will, as I don’t like it on my nails solo. The color is beautiful, and that’s why I bough it, but it’s just not for me.
Over the green base I sponged some yellow. The tree branches and green leaves are painted freehand. Here’s the design a bit closer:

The products list for the Earth Day nail art:

  • Orly Green Apple – light green base, the color does remind me of green apples!
  • Orly Lemonade – pastel yellow for sponging
  • Acrylic colors for the tree branches and green leaves
  • Clear top

That’s it :) Thank you for reading and have a happy Earth friendly Monday!

      Thank you Ina :) I don’t often wear green, but when I do it feels refreshing, especially with such a cheerful color as Green Apple

  2. It is so lovely, and I think that Orly might need to be in my collection too :)

      Hello Sabia and thank you! Usually I paint my nails 3-4 times a week, sometimes more often.. or if I like a color I can wear it a bit longer :)

      I’m glad you liked the design :) Green is the color of spring and nature, so I thought it would be perfect for the Earth themed nail art.
