Beachy Ocean

Happy weekend to everyone! I've had a very lovely long weekend so far with my boyfriend at his house. Between doing some work for the sorority and playing massive amounts of StarCraft II and Warcraft III, I did my nails. For this weekend, I did a beachy-ocean look using China Glaze Custom Kicks, China Glaze 2030, Etude House Gold, and Cover Girl Gold Rush.

I started with gold French tips. I could have stopped here as the tips look very good against the blue, but I did them a little messy and decided not to go back and fix.

Using the bottom of the nail brush, I dabbed gold onto the nails. I used two coats in a gradient-style manner.

Picture using natural light. I feel like Custom Kicks is very difficult to photograph because it always looks more light blue (like For Audrey) than it is in real life. Actually, I feel like Custom Kicks is a very green teal.

Completed manicure with some Cover Girl Gold Rush (clear polish with gold glitter) on it.
