Twinsie Tuesday: Beach Inspired

Hey guys!  This weeks Twinsie Tuesday post themed "Beach Inspired".  Oddly enough, I usually don't wear polish when I go on beach vacations.  It usually chips more quickly because I'm in and out of the water so much.  Plus, I don't like to put time aside to do manicures while on vacation.  This year, though, I'm going on vacation in the beginning of August ( Guest posting anyone?)  and I want something on my nails.  I just need to make sure I do the right pick in polish: good wear, travels well, and fun bright color!  Anyway, for this challenge I wanted to do something with the textured polishes.  They are literally the perfect depiction for sand!  Especially Zoya Godiva, which is my base color here.  I then went in and added some fun starfish to the mix in Essie Where's My Chauffeur and Haute as Hello.  Both are great bright colors and they stood out on the base so nicely.  I loved Godiva on the base, it sparkles just right and the color of it looks exactly like sand!  Maybe that's what I should do for vacation- a textured polish.  They wear so great!  Now to decide which shade?
