40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Summer

Week 37 of the 52 week 40 Great Nail Art Idea's Challenge.

This week the prompt is Summer.

I am trying to do some of the challenge nails in advance.  I did these nails a few weeks back.

I have used OPI Alpine snow for the base colour.  The main gradient here is done solely using acrylic paint.  I started off using just an orange and deep red but thought it needed something else.... So.... I added a lighter orange at the cuticle and three sponges later I had a beautiful hot summery gradient.

To finish, I added some lacey decals and some studs.  Overall, I loved this on and got many compliments.  (was asked where I got them done?)  Just wishing now our summer is just as hot.

The acrylic colours I used are Orange, Vermillion and Deep Red.  The decals (10 black and 10 white) are from Aliexpress and I have used them before, here and here.  I also used a very similar set from Sparklynails here.
