Summer Challenge Day 11- Sea Shells

Edit: SO sorry that this posted so late! I set it to post automatically, but that didn't quite work out so well so here it is a bit late, but still it's here! :-)

Hi everyone! So I actually really love how this manicure turned out for today's challenge. Yay! So first I thought I would show my inspiration for this manicure.

I had the idea to do use the ruffle manicure technique that Chalkboard Nails shows here and using some colors similar to the shell above. I think that it is a bit of an abstract take on it, but I think with seeing the shell that was my inspiration it makes more sense. Anyways, I started off with a base of Wet n Wild "French Creme White" then I added a layer of of Sally Hansen's Diamond Strength in "Dazzling Diamond". For the ruffles I used NYC Color in "Canal Street", Rimmel London's "Steel Grey", and Essie's "Armed and Ready". So without further ado here are the pictures! :-)

Well I hope you enjoyed this one as much as I did! I actually think that I might have to do the ruffle manicure again sometime with some more fun colors. :-) Until next time! Enjoy!


  1. It's really cute!!
    I love your color combination :)

  2. This is great - perfect technique to mimic the colors of the shell - nice job!
