Beachy Keen, Jellybean!

Hey everyone!! Today's nails were inspired by where I was today and yesterday- the beach!! I went to Newport Beach to get the hell out of Vegas for a bit... plus of course, I wanted to go t IKEA. lol I meant for todays nails to look like surf breaking on the shore... its fairly simple because I didn't want to carry a bunch of tools/colors with me. I also got to see San Pedro today, which has amazing views, thanks to our awesome 'tour guide', Kerry. (and thanks for lunch, too!! :-P)

The inspiration:

The nails:

I used OPI Sand in My Suit as a base (fitting right?!), with Orly Snowcone for the water, topped with Milani Cyberspace. for the breaking waves, I used Diamond Cosmetics Giddy and American Apparel Cotton sponged on the shoreline. Topped off the sand with LA Splash Chmapagne Sparkle for the sparkle of the sand, and mattified it with Essie Matte About You.

From the Mad Greek- Fresh Strawberry Shake!

My first fried Cheese on a Stick, from Jane's Lemonade. :-P It was... interesting. :-D Yes, I was making the goofy face on purpose! :)

I need a nap now. :-/ lol

    Every Christmas here in my town we have a travelling German market stop by for a couple of months and one of the stalls does the most AMAZING deep fried gouda. It's the highlight of my Christmas since reaching adulthood ;)

  5. Very cute, I like how the 'beach' went diagonally across your nails :)

  6. I'm really wanting that Strawberry shake right now...

  7. I love the beach and love the nails!

  8. You never cease to amaze me at your creativity.

  9. This mani = pure love. It is gorgeous!!

  10. I'd have to say I love the mani too. :) You see, I used to do this mani every year on our National Day! :D Oh, and if you haven't guessed... I'm from Sweden. ;P

    Keep up the great work!

  11. Sorry! The friggin' browser sent me to the wrong post. I meant to comment on the Ikea-mani. Gah!

  12. Oh man, I really love this mani. Would you consider doing a tutorial on it? I would love to recreate this!

    Man, I miss the beach and California. I grew up there, and I really miss The Mad Greek, too! This whole post is just yummy.

  13. Nicely done! It really reminds me of the beach.


Go on, comment... you know you want to. ;-P
