This weeks challenge on NPQueens was Cocktail Nails. I couldn’t resist another palm tree mani again, but this time with a softer, sponged gradient. 

A Mahiki Piña Colada is served in a whole pineapple, frozen and scooped out. Plenty of rum in mine please!

I sponged the gradient on a pale nude base – São Paulo Streets was a freebie I wanted to try and it worked as well as a white base. The palm trees and cocktail were all freehand with brushes and the end of an orange stick for the dots on the pineapples.
