It is HOT! I don’t know about you, but summer has hit BIG TIME in Southern California. It went from beautiful mild weather to a full-on, over 90 degree heat wave – woof! That being said, it is kinda the perfect weather for a Beach themed #MonthlyMani! Here is my Beach Day nail art:
I can’t take credit for coming up with this design myself. I went looking for inspiration and found several similar designs on Pinterest, so I decided to create my own version. The design is really simple to make but has a really fun, unmistakable beach vibe! Here’s how I did it:
I started with my base of blue and tan polishes, painting each nail half blue and half tan, except for the ring finger. I didn’t do anything special for this step, no tape or anything, just freehand.
Next, I decided to jazz it up and make the sand look, well, more sandy by adding a coat of gold glitter over the tan base.
To complete the look, I added an orange starfish to each ring finger for an accent nail. No Beach Day nail art is complete without an added fun accent – amiright?! The starfish was easily created with my nail dotting tool by dragging the ball to create thick lines. After my nails started to dry, but were still a little tacky, I pushed the ball into the starfish to add the dot impressions on each leg.
