Inspired Sunset Gradient Palm Tree Nail Art


Hi guys! I am so excited, because today's post is coming from my new laptop! I am so happy to finally have a new computer, because editing photos had become such a difficult task on my old one. Anyway, today I have some nail art that I just can't wait to show off - I copycatted this gorgeous palm tree nail art by @LetsNailMoscow from Instagram.

To achieve this look, I started with a base of KBShimmer Eyes White Open, then sponged on a gradient of Zoya Lillian and OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini (which I reviewed here!). I used a small paintbrush and acrylic paint to freehand little palm trees, and topped everything off with matte top coat from Born Pretty Store.

Seriously, I am so thrilled with how this manicure turned out. The original manicure was just so eye catching, I knew I had to recreate it!

You can see my review of this OPI shade here - and use the discount code POLISHCHALLENGE at HB Beauty Bar for 15% off all polishes. The Zoya shade is part of their new spring collection, which I will be reviewing soon - you can purchase it here, in the meantime.

What do you think of this nail art look??
