Digit-al Dozen: Look Up Outside At Work

Greetings and Nailutations,

It's day 4 of the Digit-al Dozen week and our prompt is Look Up.  Today I outside at work, looking up at the sky!  Palm trees and blue sky!

Let's get to the details!
I will first start off that I do not like how palms are trimmed in Arizona.  In our housing development, many times, the trees only have 4 fronds and they look so sad.  I like full filled out palms.  Anyways, this is where I stand, waiting for my "driver" aka "carpool partner" aka Mr BeginNails to pick me up when we leave work.  :)

Products used:
Polish 'M - Denim (press sample)
Jenna Hipp - I Surf With Boys
Dream Polish - Gem Glam Top Coat
Ribbits Stickits - Un-Frog-gettable Cuticle Cover (press sample)

I started with a base of white and after applying Un-Frog-gettable Cuticle Cover on my skin, I did a gradient with Denim and I Surf With Boys.  I topped it with Gem Glam Top Coat.  I free hand drew the palm trees and sponged on the other trees at the bottom.

I hope you enjoyed this mani!  :)  Be sure to check out the other manis below from the Digit-al Dozen.

  1. I'll miss this series. It really forces each of you to be creative. If I look up today I'll see snow and more snow. I'd rather see those palm trees. Your nails look serene.

  2. Love this mani, Kristi! As I look at the snow outdoors, I wish I were there among the palm trees

  3. I am so impressed on how artistic you are!
    Do I google ‘gradient’ so I know what it means and how to do it? Will it be on a utube show?

  4. at First I thought they were Joshua trees! Love the sunset gradient, looks so pretty!

  5. Love these--beautiful gradient and awesome art! :)

  6. Great mani! Palm trees is definitely not something I see here.

  7. Beautiful, this mani is pretty! I love leaving work and looking at the palm trees. Especially yesterday when my family and friends in NJ were in a snowstorm! :(

  8. So pretty! Reminds me of Los Angeles too! :)

  9. Love the gradient. Matches the photo!

  10. The palm trees are freehand? OMG you are an artist! Come do my nails! There are some of us who can't manage decent dots, let alone such freehand art.

  11. I love palms and these turned out so pretty! Love the picture of the spot you got your inspo from, too.

  12. Gorgeous. That gradient is already amazing and I love the palms!

  13. This is so cute! It looks like a photo of palms at dusk!

  14. This is perfect! You did such an awesome job nailing the palms!
