Today I've got a beach inspired mani to share with you. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted, so this one kind of evolved as I went along.
I started with a base of Sinful Colors Cinderella. I used a nail brush to add a "shore" of Kleancolor Mocha, and dotted it with NYC Fashion Safari and Revlon Top Speed Stormy.
I decided to add decorations to my beach shore. I tried stamping a little crab but it didn't really work well with this color set up so I decided to switch to the "decal method" for the designs. The outline provides a lot of detail and really makes the design stand out.
So, for the decorations, I used these plates:
Octopus - Mash 37
Palm Tree - Shany SH19
Crab & Seahorse - Cheeky CH39
Starfish - Gals 42
In some places, the polish got a little thick from the layers and the stamp decal, but it's a small price to pay to keep company with such cute little critters.
Keep swimming, Konaddicts!
