Digit-al Dozen: In My Garden There Is Citrus

Greetings and Nailutations,

It's Day 3 of the Digit-al Dozen In My Garden week!  I've covered the beautiful bees and the lovely sound of music in my garden.  Today I'm going to share something I can both eat and smell from my garden - CITRUS!  Orange blossoms are one of my favorite scents and for a few weeks of the year in the winter our windows are always open letting that fresh aroma in.

Let's get to the details!

Products used:
Polish 'M - Lemonade, Harlequin, Tangelo (press samples)
Moonflower Polish - Noche (acquired from Lantern and Wren)
Ribbits Stickits - Un-Frog-gettable Cuticle Cover (press sample)
Clear Jelly Stamper - Big Bling Stamper (press sample)
What's Up Nails - B008 plate
Dream Polish - Gem Glam Top Coat (press sample)

I started with Lemonade as my base.  On the nails with the gradient, I used Cuticle Cover to protect my skin and cuticles.  I used a make up sponge creating a gradient with Lemonade, Harlequin and Tangelo.  I topped it all with Gem Glam Top Coat.  Once that was dry, I stamped lemons!

We have 4 orange trees (that produce anywhere from 40-100 oranges each), a lemon tree and a cocktail tree!  A cocktail tree is a tree that has a different type of fruit grafted on each branch - so the tree has a lemon branch, orange branch, grapefruit branch and a lime branch too!

  1. A cocktail tree? That is the best tree ever. I'd love that. Meanwhile I'll just love your citrus nails. Another cute one!

  2. LEMONS! I love it! We have a cocktail tree in our town and I'm really wanting to make friends with the owner so I can get some fruit but my coworker has been planting trees too and I'm so ready to make some fresh lemonade!

  5. Beautiful--I love the hint of green. :)

  6. I want a cocktail tree!! Wish I was in the right climate.

  7. I would love to have citrus and pomegranate trees! I guess that is the reward you get for putting up with super hot temps in the summer.

  8. This is adorable! I wish I had fresh citrus available!

  9. Wow, that has to be the cutest stamping I've seen all Summer! I tried growing citrus, but didn't make much headway.

  10. I love that it has a lil green, at the top like a ripening lemon!

  11. This is a super cute mani, and I love everything from the polishes to the plate!

  12. This is so cute and just perfect for summer!!!

  13. What a perfect mani for the summer! Love the colors and the stamping and now I'd like a tall glass of lemonade, please!
