Summer Nail Art – Tropical Sunset Palms

tropicalpalmnails2

Looking at some of my past nail art, I realized I haven’t done many summer inspired designs. So for the next few weeks, I’ll be focusing on nail art with summer themes. I love gradients, so I thought I would incorporate some tropical colors as a sunset background to palms. I used three polishes for this gradient: Sinful Colors Pull OverSephora by OPI Hi Def, and Sephora by OPI What Aura Gonna Wear?. In order to get the gradient as seamless and opaque as possible, I sponged it over a white base then did three layers.

The palms were trickier to do. My striper kept curving in all the wrong places and some of my lines came out thicker than I wanted. I tried this design before and had drawn both white and black palms, but decided to ditch the white since they overpowered the design. I also made them smaller in size since I had to cut my nails short after a couple of them broke.

I actually did a different design on my other hand and will be posting that one next. I’m going to try to cover a few more summer nail art ideas before September – and the start of the 31 Day Challenge.
