Creative musings in bright colors

Beachside

I realize that this is both blue and tan, but give JUST HOW MANY BLUE POLISHES I USED (omg) I am counting it as the day 5, Blue, post for the 31 Day Challenge.

This design was inspired by majikbeenz who actually has a lovely tutorial! Which of course I only found after I was done since I was simply using a pinterest pin. Whoops!

I basically started with a light blue base and then painted on each of the other blues. And glitters. And flakies. Oh my! I think what really makes this is the textured sand (I knew I could still find uses for those textured polishes!) and the white surf at the border with the sand.

  1. At least 80% of your nails are blue so definitely fitting for the Blue challenge 🙂
    (and now I’m longing for a day at the beach)

  2. Great nail art! Love beach designs!

  3. I’m turning blue trying to catch up on all these challenge manis!?

    Wow, you really did use a bucketful of blue polishes 😂 But worth it cos this looks very cool –
    and reminds of how much I need a beach holiday…
