Autumn Sea

My favourite thing in the whole world when the days get longer and the time gets warmer is the thought that soon I'll be going to the beach and enjoying some swimming in the sea :)

But that's not to say the sea isn't beautiful in all seasons, for it is! <3

So, for no reason at all, only because I felt like it I painted the sea and its 'Autumn waves' on my nails today (which gave me a most zen-licious mood throughout the day, I  must add :))




Ah...Peace :))




It all started with two coats of Rimmel Acqua Cool, which I think you can only see in tiny spots on some nails anyway - one gets carried away when sponging ;)




I then went about the upper part of the nail, close to the matrix, looking for a stormy sky effect, with some purple, grey and dark green polishes.




I finished it all with different shades of blue sponged to make the appearance of waves and to imitate the different tones the sea naturally has.
Some white for foamy bits and that was it! :)



Quite a simple effect to achieve if you have the patience to wait in between layers and to keep adding colours till you get an image close to what you pictured in your mind :D


BF said these reminded him of Japanese drawings - what do you think?
Tell me all about it down below and have a superb evening! :)



Hugs & Kissies,

  2. You've really recreated that atmosphere when the sea is stormy and all you can hear are the waves and all you can feel is a humid fog all round. Oh my, I love autumn!!!
    This is a sort of master piece, Mina!!! ^-^
