Palm Leaf Nails Inspired by Issa

Colors (L to R): SinfulColors Innocent & Pull Over, Essie Turquoise and Caicos

This is a super easy (and hard to mess up) summer nail DIY inspired by the tropical palm tree prints from the Issa Spring 2012 show. All you do is take a thin paintbrush and make small strokes in various directions on your nails to create the ‘leaves blowing in the wind’ look. First, I started with turquoise then layered on the yellow and topped it off with the green. Paint the colors any which way and on top of each other and your nails will come out perfectly! Finish with a top coat and you’re good to go.
