MANI MONDAY: Tropical Vibes Palm Leaves Nails

by - July 06, 2020

Hey guys! Can you believe we're already officially halfway through 2020? On the one hand, this year has felt like about 16 years, while at the same time it feels like it's passing like a flash. Anyway, for July our #CBBxManiMonday theme is Summer Lingo. We have a list of 10 summer words to reference and I ended up with "Beach/Tropical" for this week... so I went with the latter and put together these palm leaves nails. 

Keep reading for more!

For this mani, I started with two coats of KBShimmer Water Relief, which is described as a pale mint crelly packed with color shifting flaks. It's... so, so pretty. 

For the stamping, I grabbed for my Born Pretty Store BP-L076 Stamping Plate (which I think you'll be seeing a lot of this month from me) and used this palm leaves image for all of my nails. On the plate, I mixed pale green and dark green stamping polishes to get this more dimensional look. I used the same image for all of the nails, using the full image on my middle two nails while trimming down to one leaf for the rest of my nails. (And I have to say, I think my pinkie is my favorite!)

I, of course, finished with a generous coat of Seche Vive Top Coat and voila!
