Gradient Faux Bois Nail Art

Have you ever had this great idea in your head but when you go to do it things just don't translate as well? That's kind of what happened with this design. I mean I love the way it turned out, don't get me wrong, but I expected it to look a lot more like wood and not so abstract. You know? Yeah, you know. ;)

Regardless of it not looking much like wood, I do love these colors together!
And the base color...just pure love.
For this manicure I used Zoya Carey as the gray base. Using a thin nail art brush, I created each detail to somewhat resemble "faux bois" (fake wood). For these details I used Bondi Brick Road (yellow), Sally Hansen Green with Envy (lime green), and American Apparel Peacock (teal). I finished with topcoat. 

The overall look is so bright and summer-y! I can't help but love it.
