Digital Dozen Does Autumn - Day 2: Roasted Chestnuts

So, here's the thing - we're all like to gain some weight during colder seasons. I know that. You know that. We all do it, c'mon!

So, for today's Autumn Day 2 I bring you one of my favourite Autumn treats: chestnuts!
My favourite are roasted chestnuts, they're so yumm!!

So here they are.
I didn't paint many of them because I always feel there's not enough in the paper bag to satisfy me!
Do you get that, too?

Also, can I just tell you I'm well chuffed about these?
I always go for a more cartoony style of painting and these are probably one of my few nail art designs that's more on the realistic side. I'm so happy I pulled it off!

I've got a matte version of the chestnuts, which I really love as well.
I almost feel like they're real, because of the texture.

I also quickly sketched an empty paper bag and although the proportions are all wrong compared to the chestnuts, I still like that detail.

I painted these with acrylic paints on top of Kiko 328 Grey.

Which is your favourite version: matte or shiny?
And what's your favourite Autumn treat/food?

Also, if you can, take some time to check the ladies' designs for Day 2 in the inlinkz - they won't disappoint ;)

Hugs & Kissies,

  5. Holly crap! You are insane! And I mean it, I am going to report you to the nail art police if I ever hear anything about "I don't have drawing/painting skills. Well, maybe that was true like 5 years ago, but right now you are crazy talented!!! I can't believe how good these are!

  6. Haha!! I get the exact same feeling! Like I get to the last chestnut and I look in the bag asking who ate my chestnuts!!! hahahahahaaaa
