Romantic Sunset With Inocos

I had to start today's post with a photo instead of words, 'cause an image is worth a thousand words, you know that. 

Gradients just have some magical thing about them, don't you think? :))
I'm really happy with how this gradient turned out, specially because it's so similar to the picture I chose to guide me (click here) :)

I love, love, love the gradient I manage to create with Inoeh Care beautiful polishes!
I've used Inocos Maria Bonita, Inocos Soneto, Inocos Concertina and Inocos Coc√≥ (in this order).

The whole theme to this manicure came from me wanting to do my own take on Narmai's Epic Love Stories.
(If you don't know who I'm talking about, you've been living under a rock! ;))

Narmai is The amazing nail artist behind «Piggie Luv».
I kneeled and paid my respects when she started her Love Story series, and I'm really happy they're now on their '3rd Season' ;)
(She also did one of my favourite Cat Manis in the whole history of Nail Art, which, yes, I'm hoping to recreate some time ;) click here and here)

After looking at those gorgeous pieces of art, you now totally see where my inspiration came from, right? ;)
At first I wanted to make the couple from my sunset gradient inspiration picture but I couldn't get it right!
Just... wasn't happening!

palm trees in the sunset

I did a simple 'hold-me-forever-in-your-arms' type of thing instead and I think they turned out really cute :))
And last but not least...

kissing in the sunset

I mastered palm trees!!!! YAY for me!! :))
They're not yet perfect but I love that I manage to create that awesome wispy look ;)
Considering I turned palm trees into mountain trees on my first failed attempt, I'd say not bad, hey?
Patting myself in the back right now ;)

And now enough of overloading your screen with a gazillion photos.
I wish you a fantastic weekend, with the fabulous landscape of your dreams and we'll talk soon! :))

Hugs & Kissies,
