OMD: Gradient! With palms of course

gradientgradient nail art

OMD Day 17: GRADIENT! I love gradients! For this design I painted my nails yellow. Then i chose four more colors and made a different color gradient on each nail. Well, the gradients didn’t come out flaweless as you can see in the top picture, so I decided to add my favoirite nail art design. Palm trees! I can’t get enough of palm tree nail art!

Colors used: Yellow ”Isa Dora – Mellow Yellow”, Blue ”Isa Dora – Miami Blue”, Purple ”Isa Dora – Bella Vita”, Green ”Isa Dora – Marzipan”, Peach ”China Glaze – Mimosa’s Before Mani’s”

From time to time I get the question of what brush I use for my palm trees. The reason why it’s hard to give a qiuck answer that question is because I always cut my brushes. So here’s my brush. The name of it is Artist’s Water Colour Sable – Rigger size 1 by Winstor & Newton, England. It’s pure kolinsky and the hair is about 16 millimeters long. As you see I have cut it quite much! Never cut the lenght of the brush, then you’ll lose the pointy tip of the brush. But I cut away almost 80 percent of the thickness of the brush. I bougth it in an artist’s shop in Stockholm for about 80 sek (12 usd). I use this brush for palms and zebra stripes. This is my most precious brush and the palms almost paints themselves!
