Beach Nails - May Challenge

It's time for another challenge! The challenge today is "Inspired by the Beach"!
This manicure is a mix of a half moon and a gradient.
The colors are inspired by a tropical beach where the sand is almost white and the water is bright green turquoise.


I used the following polishes: (from left to right)
Barry M Lychee
Barry M Greenberry

I also used some nail striping tape and a piece of a make-up sponge.

First I applied the nude color and let it dry completely.
Then I added a piece of striping tape on each nail.
After this I did the gradient on one nail at the time with the sponge and 
then I removed the striping tape before the turquoise polishes had dried. 
To seal the manicure I applied one coat of Seche Vite.

Don't forget to check out what the other ladies' are doing for this challenge!

How do you like this beach manicure?
Can you feel the sand between your toes? ;)

  5. Wow this is gorgeous! Such an original idea... I've never seen anything quite like it! I like that it's an abstract interpretation of the beach. Everything is perfect... from the colors to the gradient on top to the sharper contrast on the lower half of the nail. Awesome job =)
