Good morning, readers! I’m alive! It was a busy week last week and I didn’t have time for painting my nails or posts, sorry for the lack of communication. However, I was able to get this week’s Digit-al Dozen manis ready for you! The theme is Nature and I can’t wait to see how everyone does! It’s so broad that I think we will have tons of variation in nail art.

My first mani was inspired by a tutorial in my favorite nail art book (that I’ve shown you many times before!), Idiot’s Guides: Nail Art by Emily from The Lacquerologist. Actually, the majority of my manis for this week were done using tutorials out of the book so this will be exciting!

The Palm Trees tutorial is found on pages 144-145, in the Intermediate Designs section of Idiot’s Guides: Nail Art. I remember trying a similar mani on my younger sister years ago, before the start of Adventures In Acetone, and I can’t believe I’ve never done one on myself.


What do you think? I really love how the gradient colors turned out together, and I still can’t believe I haven’t done the classic sunset palm tree mani after all of these years.
Idiot’s Guides: Nail Art is available now on Amazon in paperback or Kindle edition! I highly recommend it!

    Hi Jacki, it's a tropical, fun-loving, hoping-for-warmer-weather mani! Your free-handed palm trees are delightful, too. I wish I was in a sunny locale right now!

    You totally KNOCKED THIS ONE OUT OF THE PARK! I think I said this to you before, but you really made a relatively basic manicure into something artful and beautiful. Great job <3
