Sea Inspired Nails

Autumn is probably my favorite season, I love jumpers, big scarfs and orange and red. But at the moment we're in an awkward in-between stage. Its September, summer is coming to an end, but we're also still getting a few sunny days, and Autumn, though round the corner, isn't quite here. I haven't been able to fully embrace Autumn yet, and I'm still morning the end of the holidays, so I'm going to cling on to them for a little while longer with some sea inspired nail art. 

I did use a stamping palate to create the white waves, but this is also a pattern that wouldn't be too hard to replicate without one. Something like this white Barry M nail art pen would make it pretty easy. You can see a design I produced with the black version of the pen here, if you'd like to get a better idea of how the pens look and work.

I used:
-Barry M Aquarium Collection in Pacific
-Gals Stamping Palate (GA3) Princess Set (Fourth on the second row in image)

The Barry M Aquarium range has to be one of my all time favorites. The colours are all so pretty, with a high gloss and mixed shade effect. The only thing against them is that they don't stamp very well - they definitely need two coats. They still make the perfect base coat for any stamping patterns though, and they look pretty great all on their own too. :)

If you're interested, I've blogged about a few other nail art designs, which you can find here.

  1. I love the base color, it reminds me of the way light plays off the ocean. And white works so well on top!

    1. Thank you for your comment! The base colour is one of my favorites, its such a peaceful but happy colour :)

  2. That looks lush. What a beautiful colour. I suck at doing nails and always smear them so am very envious!

    1. Thank you! I think it's probably my favorite shade :)

      I'm good at smearing them too, I get very impatient waiting for then to dry! If I set myself up with a film to watch that keeps me in one place and helps a bit though :)
