Creative musings in bright colors

Tropical Tease

I put these nails together when it was pouring out. For days. I needed something bright and happy to cheer me up! What’s more, my original version of these nails is my most pinned design on pinterest. Despite being done so long ago that my nails look funny and I didn’t really clean up my design!


This was a fairly simple design…a gradient and then some matte rhinestones from the Born Pretty Store. I am loving these rhinestones! Oh man, leaf-shaped matte rhinestones? Yes!


The gradient polishes are not matte to begin with (I added a matte top coat, which is sadly beginning to accumulate little white specks that show up on my nails as the polish dries), while my black polish is matte. Which means it dried awesomely fast!

  • Red: City Color – Red

  • Black: Mentality – Rascal


If you want to play with some neon rhinestones, you can find them at the Born Pretty Store for $3.95. Don’t forget to use my 10% off code….LY5X31!
