Ocean Nail Art for Challenge Your Nail Art

It’s time for another piece of nail art for this month’s Challenge Your Nail Art theme! This month’s theme is Pirates. Yesterday’s prompt was sea creatures. You can see the mermaid nail art I did by clicking here. Today’s prompt is oceans! I thought of doing an underwater scene, but since I’ve done that before, I wanted to try something new. Then, I saw an image as I was flipping through my Cici&Sisi plates and I saw something that reminded me of the froth when the ocean water hits the sand. I was suddenly inspired to do a frothy, seafoam mani! I started out with three coats of piCture pOlish better which I received from them as part of BloggerFest earlier this year. Then, I did a gradient using piCture pOlish Sea Jewel. The gradient is more subtle than what my head thought it would be, but I like the look of it away.

 

Here is what the gradient looked like prior to the stamping portion of this nail art.

And here is the ocean nail art after the stamping. In my head, it looks like foamy ocean water. I hope that’s what you see, too!! I do love sitting by the ocean, but we don’t usually get the classic sandy beaches up here in the Pacific NW! So I’ll just have to read a book with this manicure to simulate reading by the ocean. :P

And for the first time in the history of Betty’s Beauty Bombs….I filmed how I did it! I know the angle is awkward sometimes. But, I would like to know what you think! Is this helpful? Would you want to see more?
