How to: Sunset Manicure

Sunsets are the prettiest in the northern part of Michigan. Particularly when they are over a lake, and it is definitely a bonus if it is over one of the Great Lakes. On a recent trip up north I was sitting on the beach near the Mackinac Bridge. The sunset that night was a stunning display of tangerine, peach and orange. After taking multiple pictures that just did not do the sky justice I decided to recreate the serene setting on my nails.
