Hello and welcome back, today I kind of have a big post to share, its full of pictures anyway. :) First up I am sharing swatches of Nails Inc Bright Ambition collection, and then I have a fun nail art design I did with them and a video of all of that, so lets go!



Nails Inc Not Invited

Not Invited

A blue creme.

Ahh, this blue was so nice! Perfect formula and applied like a dream. Basically I could seem this as a one coater but I feel like that 2nd coat really just completes it, but really you could get away with 1. Especially if you are planning on art on top!

Nails Inc Strictly Bikini

Strictly Bikini
2 coat(s)

A warm neon orange.

Woo, this is bright. The camera was not a fan, but ya know! Thats just the sign of a true orangey neon right? This one also had a great formula and was great in just one coat. It is what I would consider a warm orange instead of like traffic cone orange which is great! :)

Nails Inc White Out

A white Creme.

Ahh, I love finding a new and good white which describes this! It has such a great coverage and I mean that makes it just the best art base. If you are going to wear it alone I would do two coats, but for major art on top thats not really necessary.

A magenta like neon.

This one is the only one that must have 2 coats. Its a little on the sheer side and needs that second coat to get everything covered. Once its all good though its very pretty!

Palm Tree Nail Art

OK now its time for the art! So I finally just want to kinda take a break from theme-ing things, and being all planned out when it comes to nail art. I feel like lately I've stuck with simple things and "safe" looks which is good and all but I kinda miss taking risks.

Now none of that really means anything when it comes to this design because this is an easy look but also its got more of a complicated look to it and it totally took be back to all of those more complex manis I did of skylines and sceneries and so on.

Anywhooo for this design I not only did it as a mani but I also painted the ideas and different components of it as a sketch with marker and watercolor paints then combined it all to make a fun lil Mood/idea board.

Palm Tree Nail Art

I show you how all of it is done and its white a "free" process which no rights or wrongs ya know. Just some dabbing of some polishes and a tad bit of actual painting!

Palm Tree Nail Art

I started with White Out as my base color. Then I spot sponged (meaning here and there not over the whole nail) Its 12pm Somewhere. After that I did the same thing with Not Invited. Then I used some acrylic paint and added in some chunky orange lines, then I did the same with some white on top of the orange but leaving and orange rim. Once that was done before it was 100% I spot sponged on some of the Its 12pm Somewhere again. Not as this point it will look a bit messy but thats all good! :)

Palm Tree Nail Art

Now that you have you "background" ready you can get out some black acrylic paint and a thin nail art brush to paint on your palm trees. I usually always start with the trunks and then move on to the palms, and you can see the way I do that in my video (below). After you have all your trees on lock it all in with your fave top coat and it just blends it all in my opinion. The sky starts to look like a soft well mixed sky and its kind of great!

Well guys that is it! I hope you have enjoyed this blog post, from the swatches, to the mood board, and of course the art. I had so much fun with this post too! It's been so long since I've had palm trees on my nails and it honestly makes me so happy, like I actually smiled every time I saw them. Let me know what your favorite one was from the swatches and while you are at it also let me know what type of nail art makes you smile!

You can find these polishes on Nails Inc Site HERE and on Sephoras site HERE. *Note most are sold out at the moment but you can be out on a notify list!


Happy Painting!
