Saturday's Theme - Palm Trees

Hello, nail art lovers!

Today's theme has finally got me to try a new technique and I'm pretty pleased with the result. Since the theme itself is pretty boring/straight-forward, I thought I should play with colors and ideas, instead.

Here is the result:

I started with a simple white base, over which I created a gradient that had continuity on my nails; it went from fuchsia to purple, purple to blue, blue to fuchsia and fuchsia to orange. I used shimmery shades to give it a bit of a glow, too.


The second interesting thing I did was to use clear nail polish to draw palm trees on two nails and then, when it became tacky, to use nail foil over it for the actual color of the palm trees.

The "drawings" managed to stand out over the background, as well as blend in nicely with the other colors of the gradient.


The nail polishes I used are:

Avon - Decadence
Avon - Mandarin Magic
Rimmel London I <3 lasting finish 198 Azure
Nicole by OPI - A Like-Haley Story...


I hope you like my manicure and please don't forget to visit the other bloggers:
