Digital Dozen does Food: Peaches

Today’s Digital Dozen post is special – it’s our diner hop! That’s right – the first every Digital Dozen blog hop! Now, the theme is food, so we all picked something you could get off the menu at a diner.

Fresh Peaches | The Dalai Lama's Nails_I chose fruit. Now, I know that generally you would expect canned fruit at a diner, so maybe this is cheating a little bit. However, in keeping with things that grow in my garden – peaches! This year, my husband and I celebrated our two year wedding anniversary. J loves fresh fruit, especially apples. Originally, I wanted to buy him two apple trees to celebrate two sweet years together. However, I discovered a few things. 1 – fruit trees are expensive. 2 – you need two apple trees in order to pollinate the fruit. So I switched plans, and bought a peach tree as a gift. Peach trees are different than apple trees – you only need one in order to get fruit. Now, our tree started out with fruit on it, but since it’s a a baby tree, the fruit is kind of weird. Oh well! Hopefully it will be delicious in the next few years.

I started out with a coat of Essie Kisses and Bises. It’s sheer but has a really pretty shimmer. My camera just refused to pick it up! Then I used JulieG Candy Shoppe polishes to create the peaches. They were perfect for this kind of nail art, since they are kind of sheer. I built up different layers of JulieG Wild Cherry, Candy Shop, and Lemon Drop, and blended them together to look peachy. The branches were done with Jessica Mad for Madison. I used Seche Vite to top coat. Fresh Peaches | The Dalai Lama's NailsBy the way, I tried something different with my backgrounds this week. What do you think? Fun, or distracting?
