Beauty and the Beach: Nail Art Entry

 This is my entry to the Beauty and the Beach Competition which is being held by travelsupermarket.com.
I struggled for while to come up with a holiday look so in the end I just sat myself down and thought 'What's my favourite part about the beach?', and the answer is easy... the waves!
This nail art is meant to look like the little remainders of the tide that wash up on the beach. For me, it doesn't qualify as a holiday unless I at least get to dip my feet in that last inch of the ocean.



I used Cult Nails Cruisin Nude as my base colour then used Essie Mezmerized to create a gradient using this tutorial. Then I used a sponge to dab on some Barry M White to create the foam. Finally, I finished it off with two coats of Essence Better Than Gel Nails

  4. I love it specially the sponged/gradient foam, I've been wanting to try something like that to make it look like clouds but I can't do it. I'm not sure if it's the sponge that I use or maybe just how I dab it :/ Anyway this looks awesome! ^_^
