Hey guys! I've got a good one for you today, that is if you're into nail art and tropical prints! And who isn't, amirite? Special bonus, this palm tree mani diy is actually pretty easy to do yourself - no need to pay a premium at the salon. And you don't need any special painting skills - if you can write your name with a pen I bet you can draw some palm trees that look amazing on your nails. So let's get to it!

Here's what you'll need:

Start with clean, painted nails: 1 coat of the base coat + 2 coats of nail color, and let dry thoroughly. Shake up the pen according to the directions and get it flowing on a scrap of paper. For one palm tree: draw one long line for the trunk. Add 4-5 small arcs coming out of the top of the tree. Draw small vertical lines under each arc to make the palm fronds. Repeat on all or just a few of your nails. Finish with a clear top coat and let the compliments start rolling in!!

These trees are painterly and somewhat free-form, so don't worry about trying to be perfect! I painted palms on both of my hands and didn't have any trouble painting them on with my non-dominant hand. Practice a bit on a piece of paper, or have a friend help you out if you're having trouble.

I hope you'll give this mani a try! This nail polish pen is seriously a game-changer! I can't wait to try some other designs.
