Sea Shell Nail Art

Hello and Happy Monday, I'm not happy we are already into the seconds week of August but I am happy its Monday. Plus I am really excited about todays nail art! So after the turtle nails the other day I was just super into more detailed nail art and more anything beauty related which is how this mani came about.

I modeled all of the shells off of ones I have picked up at the beach but I can't really tell you all of the names. My mom knows them but for some reason I can never keep them straight! Ha! Anywhooo, I free handed it all.

I started each shell with a white acrylic paint shape. Then I did some watered down acrylic paint on top to give it a neat look. Then it was all outlined in black acrylic paint with the Mitty Candy 00 brush.

The base color is Heroine NYC Peek-a-Blue which is a really great polish might I add. I haven't worn cremes lately (or at least it has felt that way) and putting this and the sea turtle mani just made me really happy.

Ahh, who else loves shells? Its so neat to find different kinds, and also I mean I love finding them all over the house too! Ha, we have them intertwined in our decor as I am sure some have noticed in various pictures since I used them all the time as props! :)

So with these I also painted some similar shells on paper for some a lil extra and fun! Plus I am trying to do more watercolor and more drawing so I thought why not! Here is a graphic I made below!

Here it is! What do you think? Does it match the nails? Also what do you guys think about more art on here, and on Instagram? I am kind of having fun with it but have been wondering what you all think! So let me know in the comments!



July Favorites


Well guys that is it for today, I also have my July Monthly favorites video up now on Youtube which you can see above! I actually had a lot of fun working on that video. It was fun to chat about some fave polishes, music, and a few other things, and even have a lil chat in it about something I won't start here otherwise I will never sign off! Ha, but I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Painting!
