Blue Me Away

This is the nail art design I submitted for the Rite Aid Nail Art Extravaganza finalist round!


These nails were actually inspired by the blue gradient that went into my Under the Sea design from yesterday. I was also informed that we were allowed to use striping tape in our art, and so I took off what I had been wearing and put these nails together!


Most of the nails are a dark blue base with a gradient sponged over striping tape. My thumb and accent nail are a gradient base with an inverted gradient sponged over. This was fun to make!



  • Light blue: Maybelline – Green with Envy
  • Medium blue: L’oreal – Not a Cloud in Sight
  • Dark blue: Maybelline – Shocking Seas
  • White: Revlon – nail art pen


Please go vote for me over at Rite Aid!! You can vote once per day. Two finalists will get $100 while the first place winner gets $500 and lots of publicity. Places are determined in large part by ranking based on fan votes….so if I can get into the top few based on lots of people voting I have a much better chance at reaching one of the top three positions!
