So as a young child, I was definitely into Winnie the Pooh. I'm guessing I was more into the books, rather than the cartoon (because I wasn't the biggest fan of cartoons), but who actually knows.
One thing I do remember from my childhood is my mom telling me I used to always say when it was cold out (which in Southern California was not often), "It's a cold and blustery day!" Which I still say from time to time. She told me I got this from Winnie the Pooh.
Scrolling online I tried to find an image from the books that would capture what I was thinking of!
So I decided that for The Woods prompt for the Challenge Your Nail Art Winnie the Pooh Challenge I would do my best to recreate, the feeling of cold and blustery day nails!
I started with three coats of Literary Lacquers Always Christmas, Never Winter, which I consider to be a bright blue without being too dark.
Then I broke out my stamping plate Bundle Monster BM-312 for the clouds blowing the wind and stamped that on my thumb. I used Winstonia W-113 for the umbrella tumbling in the wind. Because I seem to remember there being an umbrella in the books, toppling through The Hundred Acres Woods.
Then I tried to recreate the woods and the windy tree, and well, that probably where my vision was ruined a bit. Using some of my smaller nail art brushes, I tried my hardest to recreate the wind, the leaves blowing off the tree and the green grass of course.
I'm not going to 100 percent knock this mani because, well, mission accomplished. But I'm not going to say it's pretty either. Oh well, it was fun to remember a childhood literary love of mine!
Oh and don't forget to check out the other lovely ladies (who I'm sure did much better on this)!
