TPC - Round 7: Beach Tents

Goooood morning, Lovelies! :D

The wweather's been so nice and summery, I decided to have a bit more fun with this challenge today and went for a mani that has drawn partial inspiration from one of the most lovely things from Summer: beach tents :)





I started with one coat of white, using Purple Professional No.32.
I waited for it to fully dry and applied tape in triangular shapes next to my nail matrix.
I then applied each of the three polishes: Beauty UK Turquoise Shimmer (both on my index finger and my pinky), Prestige Orangerie and Rimmel London Pink of Me.





I then followed with my white striper Kiss SPA02 White, to make the vertical lines on each nail - sadly some came out wider than others but... oh well



.
Do you see the black lines? Straight squiggles! That's something I used to do on paper to calm myself down whenever I was feeling too anxious or just downright impatient ;)




To do those, I used my black striper Kiss SPA12 Black and added the black squiggles on the white triangles .


This gives me a strong Summer feel, because these little tents are almost in every beach we have in Portugal :)
Do you have those in the beaches near where you live?
 

And what do you think of this mani? Do you think it resembles beach tents in any way? :D
Tell me everything in the comment section below and make sure to check all of today's lovely manicures to this challenge :)


Hugs & Kissies,

  2. Gorgeous! It's so original and fun, we also have these little tents in Argentina's beaches because it can get very windy sometimes, I totally got the summer impression.

  3. Oh Mina, you always surprise us with something! I love these :) although they don't really remind me of beach, because in NL we don't have any tents on the beach and its freakin cold! but I can imagine in Portugal the beacheas are dreamy. Great job! I'm made a splatter mani for this challenge and will upload it as soon as I'm home :)

    1. Awww, so sweet of you **
      The beaches around here are definitely different from those in NL ;)
      But i'm glad you liked the mani anyway and can't wait to see your splatter mani - it's one technique I have yet to experiment! :)
