Twinsie Tuesday- inspired by Nature nail art

Hey all,

Twinsie Tuesday time! I swear these always seem so far away but they creep up on you overnight and then you panic trying to think of a fun design to do. I really liked the theme for this week. Nature inspired manicures can be so diverse and beautiful. Plus you can't help but be inspired by nature. I thought I would give Tree-bark inspired nails a try after seeing a stamped manicure a while back on A Girl and her Polish's blog. I don't have the stamp to recreate it exactly so I freehanded it.

 I started off with 2 coats of NYC Park Avenue. This is more of a taupe which I didn't realise until I had it on my nails. For the Tree-bark effect I used Barry M Mushroom. For the accent nail (the rings you see on a tree showing its age) I used the same colours alongside Misa Bourbon on the Rocks. This is one of my all-time favourite polishes. The red shimmer is so intense in person. I used this for the knots on the other nails. I wish I had a wider range of brown nail polish for this design! I think it would have looked far better with deeper, more wood like shades. The NYC and the Barry m polishes just aren't brown enough for what I had in mind.
