[Tutorial] Summer Nail Art: My-Oh-Matte Palm Tree Nail Design

Feel the Heat of Summer with this Hot Nail Art!


Ahh! The sunset vibes every summer where palm trees silhouetted against a sunset sky. Relaxing, isn’t it? So feel relaxed with this easy step-by-step tutorial on how to paint your nails with this summer ready nail design that will put you in the summer mood!


You will need:

  • base coat
  • different colors of nail polish: white (base)
  • coral and purple (sunset gradient)
  • black (silhouetted palm trees)
  • thin brush
  • matte top coat
  • liquid latex
  • latex-free sponge


Step 1

  • Apply a base coat to protect your natural nails and let it dry first before you apply a white nail polish for the base color.
  • Use liquid latex around your nail to minimize clean up when you use the gradient method for the sunset colors.
  • Apply a stripe of coral and purple nail polish on the sponge and gently press it on your nails.
  • Add more layers until you reach the desired sunset hues.


Step 2

  • For the silhouetted palm tree — using a thin brush and a black nail polish, draw a slight curved line for the tree trunk and a few short lines at the end for the base for your palm leaves.
  • And for the palm leaves, lightly pull out horizontal lines in the same direction from the short lines you started with.
  • Once you’re done, seal with a matte top coat.
