Tropical sunset Nails!!

Hello friends,Hope you all well and good :)

I thought I would do my first Nail art post.

I did these nails a little while ago during the hot summer months! but autumn is upon us now. 

Anyway I hope you like my design,here is how I created them.

First I gathered all the polishes and items I needed

then I started with the thumb false nails and took the  Ciate mini polish in yellow taxi
(This has seen better days! lol) 
I started with doing an ombre by painting the yellow on to a make up sponge but
You can use absolutely any sponge - a make up sponge, washing up sponge or any other kind of sponge you can find.cut it to the length of your nail.

sponge lol

Start by painting across one strip of yellow then quickly add another stripe the 17 lasting fix in fairy cake
(I've seen better days also)

Then add quickly 17 lasting fix in grapefruit,
(ooh im clean lol) 

Dab the sponge directly down on to your nail. Keep dabbing lightly and moving it very lightly up and down your nail.or roll it across to cover the nail.
(You can repeat this step as many times as you need to. Just make sure each layer is completely dry before sponging again otherwise you will start smudging the bottom layers and ruin the whole thing.)

When you have applied the last dab of colour from the sponge wait afew moments then apply a top coat to blend the colours,this will give the ombre effect.

Then the fun part...
 I used this technic nail art polish with thin brush to create my palm trees.first I made a curve line on the corner of the nails.made it alittle thicker and then did some flicks of more curves from the top to make the palm branches,then I slightly made uneven lines on the branches(wiggly lines lol)
for the birds they was just a simple m shape,then I painted the sea on some of the nails.
I used BC body collection in Sapphire for the thumb nails,

then after it dried  I used the W7 in blue dazzle to give the sea alittle glitter :)

EtudeHouse Ice-cream nails in Blue mint,

 Then I finished with a top coat from MUA.

And here is the finished look!

Thanks  for looking! I hope I've not bored you too
I will have some more designs for you soon :)
