Life's A Beach!

Hey! In honour of the goorrgeous sunny weather we've been having this weekend, I thought I'd paint my nails like beaches. Apologies, I only half-remembered to take pictures of each stage but this really is easier to do than you'd think!

Step 1: Apply base coat, then a light blue colour to the 'top' third of the nail (near the cuticle). As you can see, I went a bit further than that; oops.

Step 2: Apply a brighter blue to the middle part of the nail.

Step 3: Apply a nude colour to the 'bottom' of the nail. For steps 1, 2 and 3 its fine to use the brush already in the nail polish.

Step 4: Add details such as seagulls (black striper/nail art pen) and waves in the ocean (white striper/nail art pen). I also added the tiniest amount of glitter to the ocean for a bit of depth.

Step 5: Apply a top coat to protect your design.

And that's it! Beaches on your nails, so even when the weather isn't great you can still enjoy a bit of summery-ness.
