YAY!! It’s summertime! I live in Iowa and the beaches are not that fab here in the Midwest; I mean once you’ve seen the ocean it is hard to go to a small Iowa Lake beach. So I figured if I can’t take myself to a proper beach then I will put the beach on my nails. Sounds logical right 😉
Here is how I got beach nails:
On my thumb,index and pinky I used a base of Zoya Rowan a satin nude polish. Then I took Square Hue ala moana deep sky blue that has a blue shimmer and did a sponge gradient to resemble the sky over the sandy beach.
On my middle and ring fingers I used China Glaze Sun of a Peach a neon orange that freaks out my camera. This color is way brighter in real life.
I loved this color combo but I felt like I needed to do some stamping to complete the beachy theme.
On the sand and sky nails I stamped on some waves using an image from BM-504 first using Square Hue ka’ahumanu a teal blue to give depth and then once again using white to represent ocean foam.
On my happy neon nails I added starfish from BM-503 using Square Hue ka’ahumanu. OK I love teal over the orange neon, who knew.
I really love how these turned out, now let’s all find a real beach 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
Stay tuned for the next installment of the diary of a nail polish addict.
