31DC2013: Day 2, orange nails

Monday, September 2, 2013
Another day, another nail art!
My dad will kill me for what I'm about to say because of my Dutch roots, but I hate orange. Sure, I have orange nail polish, but that's just cause I'm an addict.
That's why I had some troubles with what to do for today. I consulted my friends, and they offered me to do the an orange fruit. After I told them it's not creative enough, they came up with this!

A carrot! Ok, I know I'm kinda following the whole edible things theme here, but you are welcome to punch me if I'm doing lemons for tommorow. Please, do.
My pinky, ring, middle and pointer fingers are dedicated to the carrot itself, while my thumb if the leafs on top of it, for an easy removal ;)

My base color is Chic sand, the orange is Life 299, and I used a mixture of this and both Red 79 and Chic silly me for the shading. the leafs were done using Chic crazy in love.


  1. I think this is super cute, I never would have thought to do a carrot!
