Gel Mani: Seashells by the Seashore

For her mani, Cheng Min also picked out something from the August issue of Nail Max! I had it done on my July nail art wheel:

It’s always easier doing designs on nail wheels because the nails are so much bigger! I had to do a bit of “resizing” and “cropping” when doing the art on Cheng Min’s small nails… πŸ˜›

There are two different designs in this set. The simpler one is a tip design, with Gelish Desert Sands as a base, then Gelish Forever Beauty and Angel Pro Gelly Polish in #25 for the double French tip. I also used Orly Shine to line the double tips, and glued on tiny studs and a Swarovski crystal as embellishment.

The second design is done with either Gelish Forever Beauty or Angel Pro Gelly Polish in #25, then the various seashells were done in acrylic paint.

I like how the blue makes this set stand out. I wonder if the creator of this design added the blue because of the sea theme…?
