Busy Girl's Summer Nail Art Challenge | Week 6 Beach


Happy August! Where is this year going? This week marks the 6th week of the Busy Girl's Summer Nail Art Challenge and the theme is beach! I wanted to include a starfish in this mani because I really liked the way the starfish looked in my Twinsie Tuesday mani here

I used OPI Solitaire as the base to create some texture and covered that with Pure Ice's Calypso. The starfish is OPI's Jinx.  


If you are completing this challenge or still want to join, please post your manicures on Instagram and /or your blog and tag us: @beautybyarielle, @beautybykrystal, @mirandasmakeup, and me, @drinkcitra and use the hashtag #busygirlnails so we can see your creations!

Have a beautiful day! ♥

  3. Super cute! And the texture is so nice! It's like ... don't know it reminds a bit of a sand texture, so it made the mani looks even more beach appropriate ♥
    Hope you're having a lovely week so far Traci ♥

  4. You totally confused me with your layering over Solitaire--I was trying to figure out from the photos what you'd used and why I didn't have that textured polish yet. :)
