Summer Challenge Day 33: Sea Shells

Hi ladies!! Today is Sea Shells, a very summery theme. At first I thought of doing something with acrylics but I remembered that I had bought a long time ago some crushed sea shells for nail art and I hadn't used them yet! So I've been experimenting with them all day and this is what I've ended with.

                                ------------------------------------------------------------

Hola chicas!! Hoy es el día de Conchas Marinas, un tema muy veraniego. Al principio pensé en hacer algo con los acrílicos pero me acordé de que hace un tiempo compré trozos de conchas para nail art y no las había utilizado todavía! Así que hoy he estado todo el día experimentando con ellas y esto es lo que ha salido.


 I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! It reminds me of sea foam, mermaids, shells...  I worked with layering this time using a lot of polishes, and added the "mermaid gradient" that you can find on my Pinterest "Inspiring" Board. 

What I used:
French Tips: Holographic Glitter, Essie Shine of the Times and White crushed Sea Shells
Top Coat: Seche Vite
Accent Nail:
Base: Essence Color & Go Choose Me!
Layering: Blue Glitter, Golden Glitter and Essie Shine of the Times

                                ------------------------------------------------------------

ME ENCANTA!! Me recuerda a la espuma de mar, sirenas, conchas... He trabajado esta vez con layering utilizando muchos pintauñas, y he añadido el "degradado de sirena" que podeis encontrar en el tablón "Inspiring" de mi Pinterest.


He usado:
Manicura Francesa: Glitter Holographico, Essie Shine of the Times y Trozos de conchas blancos.
Top Coat: Seche Vite
Accent Nail:
Base: Essence Color & Go Choose Me!
Layering: Glitter Azul, Glitter Dorado y Essie Shine of the Times

I hope you liked as much as I do!!

    1. OMG! I don't think you failed! My crushed sea shells were bought prepared for nail art, so they were really thin, but you did yours yourself!! and it looked really interesting.

    1. It's one of my favourite topcoats, just a little touch to add magic to your manicures or add something special to a plain polish.

    1. At first I thought the accent nail would show up too much but I'm in love with this mermaid gradient that I didn't mind.
