Stamped Shell Nail Art

It’s back to school time for a lot of kids right now, so I don’t have much more time to get another summery mani in this year.  😦  Because I’ve been suffering from horrible back pain and spasms all summer after my car accident, I haven’t had the opportunity to hit the beach, even though I don’t live too far away from one.  My nails this time gave me an excuse to at least hobble around on the sand long enough to take a picture while I waited for my prescriptions to be filled at the neighborhood pharmacy.

But enough of my sob story- I know you’re here to read about nail art, so here are the details behind this look.

For the base color, I used Faded Blues by Ulta Professional, which is a beautiful pearly light blue.

Ulta Professional Nail Lacquer- Faded Blues

I wanted my nails to have a very dreamy and lighthearted look, so I did the stamping with Konad Special Nail Polish in White with Jumbo Plate 2 by Cheeky.

Stamped shells- I used the pattern in the first column, 4 rows up from the bottom.

No special tricks or anything on this one- it’s just plain old stamping goodness!

Sally sold seashells by the seashore- seashell nail art.

The look reminds me of beach houses and all the freshness and airiness of a fine summer day.  More importantly, these nails make me feel happy thinking about collecting shells on the beach!  🙂

Hope you all have been enjoying these past few months because soon enough it will be cold again.  :O  Happy polishing!
