How fun does that all sound?! I was planning on starting the same time as everyone else, but they increased my hours at work, and my grad summer classes all had these crazy big assignments due at the same time! THEN I got sick! I'm feeling slightly better, but man- a cold in the summer is just horrible. I have a presentation in class tonight and my voice is virtually non-existent!
Anyway, I wanted to make myself feel better, and something that always makes me happy is the beach. I love the sound of the waves, the feel of the air, the breeze....sighhhhh.
Anyway, I sucked it up and began the challenge!
For the beach theme, I went with what I think of first when I hear the word "beach"- water, sand, and sparkle. There's just something about the way everything at the beach just glistens in the sunshine! I tried to reproduce it on my nails. I began with 2 coats of Nubar Blue Hydrangea, then went and did the tips in uneven strokes with China Glaze Fast Track. Then, on Blue Hydrangea only, I used Rainbow Honey Celestia (holy crap, this polish is amazing. I'll be doing a post on it in the near future!), and then went back in and applied a bit of All That Glitters Jean Genie. I finished the whole thing off with some Seche Vite. Have a look:
Not exactly what I had in mind, but it works just fine.
