Sandy Beaches

Hi everyone!  I went with this mani just before heading off to the beach.  This one actually took a little bit of time.

I started off with two coats of Color Club Macaroon Swoon, followed by one coat of SV.  Using a damp wedge sponge, I applied a gradient using Color Club Macaroon Swoon, Color Club In De-Nile, and KBShimmer Sky Jinks, followed by one coat of SV.

To add some depth and detail, I added some splotches with a light and medium blue Sharpie, and blotted it with a flat detail brush dipped in alcohol.  For some water ripples and sea foam, I used my calligraphy pen with a soft white art ink.  To finish off the sand, I lightly dabbed on some colorless micro glitter.  I finished with one coat of SV.

I love the end result!  It was nice to be able to spend a good bit of time on a mani for a change!
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!
