Navy Blue With Palm Leaves

Allo polish Pals!


How are you all doing today, I hope your week has been awesome. Are you looking forward to doing anything fun this weekend? Today is my last day working this week so I am looking forward to two days of family time, painting and working out.

Today's nail art is actually one I did last year. I loved the idea of what I did but I didn't like the execution nor the way my nails were looking. After months of pushing this design back in favour of better ones I finally decided to redo it but I'll show you the original one too.





 

 The Original Version I never wanted to post..


For this design I began with my trusty Nail Envy base coat by OPI, this was dry in a matter of minutes and I then proceeded with two coats of ORLY's 'Good Karma' from the Breathable range. I again allowed a couple minutes to dry and applied a thin coat of my Pro-FX top coat – a perfect base for my acrylic paints. Using various shades of green I created the palm leaves using my Pure Color brush in size 10 and used pink and gold shades to add accents to each nail. I sealed the whole design in with another lick of Pro-FX top coat and eventually added my Barry M matte top coat.

I am much happier with how this design turned out the second time, my nubby nails from the first attempt didn't really do it any favours at all in my opinion, what do you think?

Do you like tropical themes? Would you have palm leave nails?

Thank you so much for visiting, have an amazing weekend and do let me know what shinanigan's you'll be getting up to. I'll see you again on Monday!


Love,
Ithi

  11. Definitely a yes. Palm leaves are one of those comfortable sides of nature and I really appreciate seeing them in art . I just love what you did here, I don't even know how to make something as beautiful as your original design!

  12. I love these nails Ithi! I really like tropical themes. I think your old design is very nice too, I do prefer your current nail shape though. (btw, I just asked my hubby to get me some OPI Nail Envy from his trip! here OPI has indecent prices 25 dollars per bottle, *gasp* he saw OPI at 8$ in a store in Canada and asked me "you want something?" aaahhaha, what a question, of course!! lol)

  13. The design is very pretty and I am so impressed by the amount of details those palm leaves have! The only thing that I would change is that pink outline, i think it would look better if it was yellow.

  15. That is a super cool design. You are so talented. Personally I am a fan of the square oval shape, even though I know it's a little dated. But your nails look really neat!
