1. Apply one coat of white polish and let dry.


2. Using shades of pink, yellow, and blue, polish across a makeup applicator sponge in stripes, then stamp onto the nail.


3. Using a striping brush with black acrylic paint, make two strips on the nail for the trunk of the palm trees, then paint small stripes for the braches.


4. Continue making small stripes on each of the branches to fill out the palm leaves.


5. Apply top coat or gel and sprinkle on glitter for a sparkle effect.
