Extra post today! So the blogger and indie polish creator, Ashley, from Daring Digits is holding a nail art contest. Its been a while since I participated in anything nail art related so I decided to give this one a try! Plus the prizes are comprised of some Daring Digits polishes, which I have been dying to try out! The theme for the contest is Beach. She stated on her blog that anything beach themed goes. I picked some of my favorite parts of the beach! The sun of course, I know its bad so lay out in the sun, but when I'm at the beach I cannot contain myself. I like the natural warmth. The rest of my fingers I chose to do the shoreline with some of the water crashing. On my ring finger I added a beach umbrella and on my pinky is a crab. As a kid we would always go crab hunting at night on the beach. It always was a tradition we would do as kids when we did beach trips with my Dad (Happy Father's Day Dad, Love you!). So of course I had to add one in there. He's just a little guy, but I like him! For the colors I used Essie Borrowed and Blue for the light blue of the sky and ocean. For the sand I used Essie Case Study, for the umbrella I used China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy ( I thought that fit with the theme as well! Haha!). For the crab and the orange in the sun I used Essie Vermillionaire. For the yellow spots on the umbrella and the sun I used Zoya Pippa. I also added some Windestine Jeweled Sand on the sand nails for some extra effect, plus I thought that was an appropriate color as well! Overall I really liked this design. I thought it was really cute! Wish me luck!
