My Beachy Vacation Mani

While I'm waiting on my mani to dry, so I can do the other hand & finish packing, I'm going to get this post up :D.  BTW, I'm typing this up Thursday night to post tomorrow, Friday. I totally fail, I went to take pictures with my camera & realized I left it on for the past 2 days.  My battery is currently charging & I don't have time to I did camera phone shots. 

I started out with 1 coat of OPI Nail Envy, 1 coat of Orly Bonder, 2 coats of Deborah Lippmann On The Beach......then on my accent(ring finger) applied 1 coat of Pretty & Polished Sand Art, 2 coats of Gelous & topped it with China Glaze Fast Forward top coat.  On the rest of my nails I sponged (from nail bed to tip): OPI Fly, China Glaze Shower Together(which I think I have scheduled next week), China Glaze Sexy In The City,  & China Glaze Frostbite...then I topped those nails with a thin coat of NYX Girls Sea Of Cortez, a coat of Gelous & topped with China Glaze Fast Forward.

WoW, that's a LOT.  I was originally just going to do OTB & Sand Art, but while doing some swatching, I kinda tested the gradient out on a nail wheel & fell in love.  I honestly can't stop staring at my nails.

With this as my mani & a pedi(not pictured) inspired by Anne at Southern Sister Polish....I'm gonna be rocking some major polish.  At least 7 diff colors on both. :D

Y'all be sure to check out my posts while I'm gone.  I have some amazing guest posts lined up as well as some of my own.  Now I must go finish packing, shave my legs, and do my other hand so I can get some rest as we leave tomorrow to stay with my brother before we leave Saturday morning for the beach.

P.S.  I'm totally geeking that when I posted this in a make-up group I'm in, Phyrra commented & said the main nails were gorgeous! 


  1. Great manicure for vacation, enjoy!!

  2. I love the gradient nails! I've always tried doing that, but it never turns out the way I envision it in my head...

  3. Love Sand Art! I just ordered it the other day, can't wait to get it in so I can play, haha!

  4. I hope you have so much fun on your vacation and I LOVE how these turned out. I have talked myself out of sand art so many times but then I see posts like this and feel myself weaken all over again!
