Gradient Palm Tree Nails

Quite a while ago, I came up with the idea to try out some gradient palm tree looks. The first one was over a base of China Glaze Dance Baby and Lush Lacquer Party Rockin. I did the palm trees with acrylic paint, gradually adding more white to it as I filled in the palm tree shape.

I wasn't a huge fan of these, so I tried again but went for a reciprocal gradient-type look in black and white:

I loved how those turned out and had one more idea in my head to do watercolor, rainbow, gradient palm trees over black.

In the end, my favorite design was the black and white one, but I actually really like this gradient palm tree silhouette look.
