Nail Art Marathon - Palm Trees

Morning ladis.

How are you? Are you ready for another manicure done for the Marathon collaboration? Today's theme, PALM TREES, was  Oana's idea.
I really want to thank her for proposing this- I had in mind for a long time a palm tree manicure and now I had the perfect opportunity.

Talking about perfect : exactly in the time I had to do this manicure...I received the Concept collection from MoyouNails (you can find the whole collection) which has a perfect plate for what I needed (plate no.307- find it HERE!)  and boyfriend, who was visiting me, decided to wear a pair of shorts...which later become my inspiration.

I decided to do palm trees on every nail. (at the end of the blog post I will show you my bf's shorts ...and I am sure the mani will make more sense then)
As you can see, plate no. 307 from MoyouNails has a lot of designs engraved. For this manicure I had to use just the palm trees , but I have to be honest and tell you that I already have a lot of ideas from the designs of this plate. Since summer is coming - I will have a perfect plate for manicures. I am especially excited by the waves!!

The designs on the plate are perfectly engraved and they get transferred from the plate->stamper->nail without any effort!!
The only thing that was a bit tricky about the palms is that I had to fill in a bit with acrylic paint the middle of the tree.

I decided to do a sponged manicure - this is another thing I wanted to do for a long time. I was afraid of "sponging" and I still am, exactly how I am afraid of ombre manicures. I find it very hard to blend-in the colours.
I am actually pretty happy with the sponging on this manicure, even though I know I could have done better.

And this was my inspiration.
