Digital Dozen does Food: Eggplant Nail Art

I always thought I had a brown thumb – you know, I never was able to keep a plant alive! Poor things, they never stood a chance. I was determined to make the most of our garden in our new house – and now here I am, growing my own food! It’s truly wonderful. Sometimes I’ll go outside during lunchtime and pick kale and fresh herbs for a salad. I’m definitely still learning, and I make it up a lot of the time.

The theme for the Digital Dozen this week is food. Since I’ve been so inspired by my garden, my nail art this week is all inspired by vegetables I’ve been growing in my garden! First up is eggplant nail art! Now, my eggplant hasn’t actually fully grown yet – but I am awaiting the day that I can harvest those gorgeous babies. This nail art is inspired by a super cute fabric print I found on Etsy.

Cute Eggplant Nail Art | The Dalai Lama's NailsI had so much fun with this look! I just bought a new detail brush at the craft store – it was only $3, but it’s very fine bristled. Here are the polishes I used:

  • Background: Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet
  • Eggplant body: Sally Hansen Good to Grape
  • Eggplant stem: Seche Empress
  • Eggplant highlight 1: OPI Suzy & the 7 Dusseldorfs
  • Eggplant highlight 2: Sally Hansen Let’s Snow

I top coated with Seche Vite, and then went over it with the OPI matte top coat.
