Digital Dozen does Nature: Fiddlehead Fern nail art

I can’t believe it’s March already! And that it’s time for another week of Digital Dozen nail art! These past few weeks have just flown by for me, though I’m always more away of how fast time flies when I’m up against a Digital Dozen deadline! The theme for this week’s challenge is nature, which is a nice, open theme. There are a lot of possibilities here! Today’s look is a little bit random, I suppose – though not as random in my life, exactly. I recently went to a CSA Fair (A CSA is where you pay to own a share of a farm, and when the farm harvests, you get tasty veggies). One of my favorite CSA veggies… fiddlehead ferns! Have you ever eaten a fiddlehead fern? Mmmmmm just sauté in some olive oil and garlic and call it a day. Although you can’t cook these up – here’s some fiddlehead fern nail art for your enjoymont.

I hope I get some fiddlehead ferns this year. We signed up for a farm share that has veggies and herbs, and I think we’re going to splurge for a fruit share, too (my mouth is watering just thinking about local peaches, cherries, apples, and pears!).The Digital Dozen does Nature: Fiddlehead Ferns | The Dalai Lama's Nails

I painted this design directly on top of my base coat (Glisten & Glow Stuck on Blu!). I used a small detail brush and Zoya Josie and Jessica Meet at the Plaza. I top coated with Glisten & Glow HK Girl.

    Never had them or heard of them until I went to live in Vermont while I worked on my Doctorate over the river at Dartmouth — I was hooked – could not get enough of them – and now back in California only way to get them for cooking is in jars (ick)

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      I didn’t know you could get them in jars!

  • I just recently watched an episode of Chopped where they used fiddlehead ferns – so interesting! And your nail art is absolutely ADORABLE <3

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      thank you! I am so into ferns! 🙂

  • You’re making me die for the farmer’s markets in the summer at even the mention of summer fruit. Your fiddlehead ferns are perfect. I’ve never eaten them but I will now if I see them.

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      They’re kind of expensive… but I love em!

  • Ashley Haddock

    These are so pretty! Detailed yet clean at the same time. Great job!

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      thank you so much!

  • A Girl and Her Polish

    I love this design! Going with the natural base really makes the ferns pop off your nails! I didn’t know you could eat these ferns.

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      thank you 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • Vic

    I really like the design over the bare nail.

  • Ooooh those leaves are perfectly painted! This whole look really reminds me of my backyard from my childhood house. I live in a big city right now so I have no backyard. Seeing this manicure really brings back memories.

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      aw! That’s very sweet

  • Love how you created the fern against your bare nails. Its lovely~

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      Thanks, Lisa!

  • Bee Justice

    I love this! We started a garden last year and there is a huge farmers market not far from us in the west side of the city!

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      I really want to start a garden, but I know nothing about it!

      • Bee Justice

        We started small with square foot gardening and easy crops like tomatoes! It’s really not hard at all but it can be overwhelming at first!

  • I didn’t realize that this is something that could be eaten! Great artwork!

    • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

      nom nom nom!

  • Sheila Gage

    I love ferns and these are perfection!

  • Kelly R

    These are adorable! Your execution is flawless.

  • This manicure makes me really crave springtime! I love it! Your free-hand is so impressive <3

  • I love these, Hannah! So clever to use some negative space with this 🙂 and I’ve never tried (or hear of) fiddlehead fern but now I’m super curious about it!

  • I knew exactly what these were but I didn’t know you could eat them! Beautiful job!

  • Growing up in the NW I have a natural affinity for ferns. This is the cutest!

  • A naked base was the perfect choice for this!
