Gradient Palm and Star Nails

 **Nothing to Disclose**
Hi guys! Happy Friday! I have a super fun and tropical nails for today. It's my last week here in this beautiful island, and will be returning back home soon. Since it was such a beautiful day, after tons of rain during this week, I thought to finally create a summery theme nails. I can't believe I haven't created one yet!
  I honestly didn't want to what to do, but as usual I forgotten I saved an inspiration on my phone. This was a design by good friend Dana from Pinkie Grey, she did last year. I really loved the combo she used with the stars and palm trees. i just couldn't wait to recreate.
  This design was super fun to do. I also wanted to use Diosa Nail Lacquer neon shades I purchased last year, and haven't been used. It is part of their PTO "Paid Time Off" collection, filled with bright and summer shades. So I knew it was just perfect use!
For the base, I began by applying two coats OPI Alpine Snow; this way the neon's pop a little more. Once the polish was completely dry, using a make-up brush, I layered Grand Dame Queen Beast, Like Whoa! and Essie Roarrange. Once the gradient was completely dry and opaque.
I then applied a thin coat of Diosa Nail Lacquer Somethin' Extra, just give some sparkle. Once that was completely dried, I freehand the palm and star silhouettes, using black acrylic paint.  Lastly, I sealed the design with H K Girl Top Coat. Overall, I loved how these came out. The colors combinations are my favorite.
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
