Inspired By Rainy Weather and Misty Trees

Misty Winter Tree Nail Art

Today's nails were inspired by a picture. It's been cloudy and raining off and on all day so when I was complaining about not knowing what to paint, my husband suggested something to match the weather. Coincidentally one of my nail groups has a running inspiration challenge where everyone paints nails based on a picture. I love this picture and today was the perfect day to match it. I've been enjoying views of mist and clouds in the trees outside my window. Good thing rainy weather is my favorite because I think we're going to be having a lot of it for a while.

I did a radial gradient in shades of grey for my misty background using Five Rules and Intelligence, Integrity & Courage from the China Glaze Giver collection and Your Turn from Sinful Colors. I used Bundle Monster plate BM-407 for the trees with Mundo de Unas black stamping polish and then topped it with a pale grey jelly that I frankened. I don't think it shows up too much, but it was meant to give the trees a misty look. 

The other nails are two coats of Milani, Bella Blue. This one is a shimmer polish with a black jelly base which covers quite nicely in two coats. As you can see below the micro shimmer has a slight blue to purple shift. In regular light you mostly see a teal shimmer. I added silver glitter (Atomic Splash by Orly) to look like the the wet leaves that are catching the light in the picture. Overall I think this has the look of a dark misty forest.

This was a really fun picture to replicate and now my nails go perfectly with the weather outside. I can't wait to enjoy them with the rain coming down outside all week.
