Palm Oasis - Beachy Nail Art featuring China Glaze, Orly and Sephora by OPI

I mentioned to you guys earlier today that this Sephora by OPI polish I'm holding above, Run With It, reminded me of fresh sparkling sand. So I got this bug in my brain that I wanted to use it in some nail art. I went googling and looked at palm tree images and nail art with palm trees and gave freehanding one a try. It didn't work out so great. So I got out my trusty Konad plates and used plate m29 and plate m79 and got to work. This is the second time I've done "Konad-assisted" nail art. The first was this MAC Liberty of London manicure where I used konad stamps and dotting tools as well. I am the absolute worst at freehanding nail designs, so I figured using konad as a sort of template was the way to go for me. I know it's far from perfect, and usually I'm anal about that, but I really like it. I am even more in awe of the chick at The Daily Nail, I couldn't do this every day, let alone freehand it all and come up with the ideas to begin with. She's my hero...

-I painted the whole nail with Orly Snowcone
-Then I used Color Club French Tip and plate m79 to stamp a cloud on the top of each nail.
-Orly Enchanted Forest and plate m29 were used to stamp the palm tree on each nail.
-I used China Glaze Unplugged and a dotting tool to go over the trunk of the palm tree.
-I went back with Orly Enchanted forest and traced the spines of the palm fronds with the same small dotting tool letting the articulated parts of the konad stamp show for a little definition. 
-I used China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini and the dotting tool to add a little highlight to the top of the palm
-With Sephora by OPI Run With It, I made little sandy islands with a dotting tool  
-I went over everything with Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat
