Tropical Summer Palm Trees

Tropical Summer Palm Tree Nail Art

Summer needs lots of tropical nails.  With warm colors, palm trees, and a touch of gold, this mani makes me want to drink mai tais and go to the beach.  #nailart

Julep Maven BoxWhen you join Julep Maven, you can get the first box free.  After taking the style quiz, I got "Bombshell" for my welcome box.  My box included 2 Julep polishes, Mighty Nail and Cuticle Serum, and nail buffers.  When you check out, you are given the opportunity to add a few extra discounted items to your box, so I couldn't resist adding another polish.

The bright orange and the gold glitter polishes instantly made me think of Miami, and I knew I wanted to do something with palm trees.
Nail Polish

Polish Used:
Other Supplies:
  • Gold nail tape
  • Nail brush
  • Base and top coats

A lighter orange pairs nicely with the bright orange and gold, and softens the look a little.  To create this look:
  • Apply a base color.  I'm using Oh! by Ulta.  It is a light, shimmery orange that is almost a peach color.
  • Paint palm trees on the ring finger using Sydney and a nail brush.  Paint the top of the taller palm tree first, then a curved stripe down to the tip to represent the trunk.  Paint a smaller palm tree in the same way.
  • Use gold nail tape to create chevrons on the moons of the other nails.
  • Using a nail brush, fill in the chevron with the gold glitter polish, Jane.
