Summer Time Nail Art Challenge: Relaxing in the Cuban Sunset


Hello lovelies! Getting this one in pretty close to the wire, but it's done and I'm really happy with it and that's all that matters. :) This is my second fill for the Summer Time Nail Art Challenge. The theme for today was sunsets! I haven't done gradients in a while, and I forgot how fun they are!


This picture was my inspiration for the design... It's a picture I took on my most recent trip to Cuba and as you can see the sunsets there were stunning.


I used a bunch of different shades for the sunset, and most of them were Formula X... From the top of the sunset to the bottom, we have: Formula X Omni, Formula X Indelible, Formula X Eureka, and then to finish it off at the very end we have Maybelline New York Color Show Pink Punch. I think I got pretty close to the original sunset which is lovely. And I added some palm trees with Formula X Dark Matter and the Julep Plié Wand Striping Brush. :)


Check out the designs from the other lovelies involved in the challenge, too!



Thanks for visiting!! xx

  2. Fantastic job on this manicure. You're the first person I've come across who has used the pile wand. What do you think of it?

    1. Thanks so much! The wand is interesting... I don't use it for normal polish jobs but I really like the length/width of the striping brush and the only way I can use it is with the wand. So for that purpose I like it, it's not really worth it for anything else. And I don't bend the wand at all when I use it for this.
