Today is my official last day at work before my vacation! Yesss!!! I need a holiday so bad after such a busy summer at work. As far as my blog goes- I really should’ve planned this better…I could’ve maybe had some nice guest posts lined up while I’m away. But I’m afraid I’ve been busy and didn’t get a chance to plan too far ahead. I guess lately I’ve been a blog-as-ya-go kinda girl! But I still plan to post while I’m away. They have the internet in Oregon, right? 😀 I don’t think I’ll bring any nail polish with me for my trip … that way I can just buy more while I’m there, naturally. I really want to hit up an Ulta Store since I don’t have one near my house!
Anyhooo…Let’s check out my manicure today! Here’s my SEA-THEMED design for the Nail Art ideas Linkup (NAIL).
I made some cute blue waves over a white base coat. I used a detail brush and 7 different blue polishes. I planned to make every wave strip a different color- but I really love Orly Sweet Peacock so I used that one twice (that’s the color on my tips)! The waves were super easy to paint because you don’t have to be perfect… but dang!!! This one took a long time. I have no idea how long but I feel like I have eye strain and I need to lay down! hahaha There are 8 waves on each nail… times 10 nails… we’re talking 80 waves here! Phew.
I hope to see more SEA designs coming up for August’s NAIL! If you want to post a pic of your sea-inspired mani you have til August 18th! Here’s the link:

OMG it’s the ocean! 😉 nice.
OMG! Hhehe thanks 🙂
Love your take on the ocean 🙂 Ohh. the sand thing, mmakes me grow grey hair..!!! What to do??
So Ive been thinking…. it could be something you do or wear while laying in the sand… like tanning, listen to ipod, drinks with umbrellas…. or stuff we find in sand like cigarette butts or hypodermic needles- OK MAYBE NOT lololol
Sooo great! A reall sea! pff the sand thing … that really will be a challenge. I am breaking my head over it. Well we will see next week what we will come up with. LOL
Thanks!! And i know… sand is a tough one… i might think outside the box and go with a fun beach theme since sand reminds me of suntanning !
…okay, now this one is just plain adorable! The colors just make you want to go to the beach and play all day~ so pretty! =0)
Aww thanks!! I’m officially on vacation now – so I’m ready to play all day too !
