When I think of summer I always think of Lipton's instant Peach Iced Tea, it's my favorite! I make it by the glass to suit my taste, which is strong with lots of ice.
Since I've got peaches on my mind I thought I'd do a mani with peaches. I'm rather pleased that it turned out so well. I think if I did it over I'd do some larger peaches on at least one additional nail if not all of them, but this is good for now.
I used an un-named blue by Cosmetic Arts that I picked up at Ross Dress for Less. It's pretty, but very thin and prone to streaks. I had to use four coats to get a decent base color. I was less than thrilled with that.
After that, it was all acrylic paint, I started with some branches, then dabbed on leaves before starting the peaches. They were easy, because they're just hearts that are a little heavy on one side. Once I had the base filled in I did an outline in a darker color and used the same to put in the "seam". Then a darker green for the leaves and they were done. I finished off with just a touch of Kleancolor Peaceful Heart for a tiny bit of sparkle, then a top coat for everything.
