Hello everyone!

 

When Aveline asked me if I wanted to do a guest post for the Snail Vinyls blog, I was absolutely thrilled! I tried to come up with a mani that was my style, and recently, I've been really looking forward to the warm weather and sunshine. It inspired me to do this bright gradient mani!

 

 

To create these glitter palm tree nails, I used the palm tree decals. I started off with a white base to make my bright gradient pop, then used Essie "Fear or Desire" (orange), Essie "Mod Square" (pink), and Glitter Daze "Away Message" (purple) as my gradient colors. I had to include some silver glitter, of course, so I used Starrily "Ultima" with the decals so I would be left with some sparkly palm trees!

 

 

The resulting mani has me wishing for summer even more! I love how the purple in this nail design changes it into a really gorgeous sunset color scheme.

 

Here's a macro shot! Glitter with vinyls is seriously one of my favorite mani combos.  I think that these little sparkly palm trees look so cute in this design!

 

 
I hope you all love this mani as much as I do! If you would like to see how I created it, then please check out my YouTube tutorial here:
 
Thank you for reading! <3
 
Love,
Erin
