Palm Trees

Hello. Here's today's manicure! Palm Trees! I love doing manicures with a simple pattern or print repeated all over, I think it looks really effective.

The base shade for these is Sun Hat by Models Own from the Polish For Tans collection. This is a super-bright neon barbie pink, and no way as bright as in these pics - couldn't get the camera to quite capture the brilliant neon. I only used two easy coats of the base shade - I love these polishes so much!

Once the base was dry I added the little palm trees using my black and white Barry M nail-art pens. I can't believe these are still going strong as I used them in practically every mani - definitely my best nail-art buy EVER. 

I finished with a topcoat of Nails Inc Caviar topcoat. This is my definite favourite of the moment but one I don't think I'd buy as it's £12 a bottle and I don't think I can justify buying that when I never keep my manicures on more than a day or two at a time! The bottle I'm using now I won as a prize.

Here are some more photos, ignore the extra "white lines", these are reflections from the flash/light in the room!
