Romantic sunset nail art

Hello hello! I have a lovely design for you guys today, I was playing around with this idea for a while and I made this with Valentine's Day right around the corner! I was going to wait to post it until then, but it's too cool and I really wanted to show you already. So click to see more pictures!

Wow! Aren't they gorgeous! I can't believe I actually painted this by hand... I had to try a couple of times to get it right though, don't worry :-p

I used Only You Banana Split, Only You Pink Party, HerĂ´me Lisbon and China Glaze Fairy Dust. The silhouettes are all handpainted with black acrylic paint.

The gradient was really hard to get right too! I wanted the sunset to be a round gradient, but it's really hard to get that to look right. I did the nail with the couple three times before top coating, and the other one six (!!!) times before giving up and just putting top coat over it. That's why the tree looks a little bit wonky, I wanted to disguise the bits that didn't turn out too great.

Do you like it? Because I do! I love it!
