Tropical Nail Art - Palm Trees

My daughter wanted me to paint some palm trees on her nails for her vacation to DR, so here is my attempt. I wanted to do a gradient that looked sort of like a sunset. So I started with China Glaze Pool Party at the cuticle area, and just applied it like regular polish but not going all the way to the tip of the nail because I am putting yellow there. After that dried I sponged on a neon orange, and finished in the tips with more sponging with China Glaze Happy go Lucky. I did two coats of the yellow for better coverage.
Then I used a nail art striper to do the Palm trees. Kinda cute right?? I didn't wait long enough for the design to dry, so the top coat dragged a little, even though I really floated it.



This is also before cleanup because, she is impatient, and had somewhere to go


It was her request to have the palm trees face the way they do. My natural instinct would have been to do them the other way, but either is cute.


Thanks for looking
Let me know if you have a request for summer nail art that you would like to see, or what your favourite nail is in the summer.

**** Here is an edit, post vacation****
My daughter was showing me some of her pics from her vacation and among them was this amazing shot of her nails. So I thought I would add it here.
