Summer Fun Challenge, The Big Blue!

Hey guys! Back today with day 6 (or post 6) of Lindsey from the Neverland Nail Blogs summer fun nail art challenge. This time was the big blue, ocean or wave nail art.

I wanted to do a marble, but since I just did one for pool party I decided to try something a little different. I wanted to try using my nail art fan brush, which coincidentally Lindsey also did a tutorial on here. So my plan didn't quite work how I wanted and I kinda wish I would have left it alone lol, but to no avail.

I used Orly Gumdrop and Essence Nail Art Twin Bella as my two blue/green colors, and I tried to make the lines a bit wavy to look like waves, good right? Yea it looked pretty good but then I decided to add sand *womp womp* and it's meh to me now :P The sand is Nubar Spark, and the surf board is Essie Orange It's Obvious.

The first pic is no flash and is more color accurate, and the second pic is in the exact same location in the light box with no different settings, this is my first world pain!!! The old man told me today he is going to build (as in not just a cardboard box, tissue paper and crappy light haha) me a new light box **yay!** so I'm hoping sooner than later I won't have this problem!

What do you guys think? Fail or not too bad?

Until next time! Happy painting!

Pin It!
