The Digit-al Dozen does Summer Day 4 - A day at the beach

Hello everyone! I have just come back from a weekend at the seaside, so it seemed fitting to do something "beachy" for Summer week. I have seem a few of these manis this week and they have blown me away - mine is a little more basic but I got to use some of my favourite colours and its another gradient that I don;t consider a fail, so I'm posting it anyway :)

I painted a gradient using Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine and Deep Blue Sea (well that was a no brainer...) and a little bit of LA Colors Metallic Silver. I added some waves using white acrylic paint thinned with a little acetone, and finished with Seche Vite.

This sea certainly looks a little more tropical than the sea I was splashing around in with Scarlett at the weekend, but it was so much fun and a little break that we all needed. Now to start the countdown until we go away in October :)

One more DD mani on the way for you tomorrow - its going to be a bright one! ;)

  1. I like the simple perfection of this one - no need to go overboard and bling it up or anything.

  2. So pretty! I miss the beach - but I'm going at the end of the week!!! yay!

  3. So beautiful! I love how many awesome beach manicures we saw this week!

  4. Barry Island never looked so pretty :) Seriously, because I don't think it could. These are gorgeous.

    I want to go back. We went last summer and ate at the restaurant where I guess they filmed a mess of Gavin & Stacey stuff? I dunno. It was nice but I didn't fancy going near the water, so we ate our chips outside the fairground and fed the seagulls, and then grabbed an icecream for the walk back to the car, lol.

  5. Beautiful! I love the breaking waves!
