Ocean Waves

Just because it's fall doesn't mean you can't enjoy a little piece of the beach! This design is one of my favorites that I've done for a very long time. It's just so lively and I always catch myself staring at my nails lol especially the shimmer of the gold sand and then the blue waves are cremes.

Here's the supplies I used:

- Billie, Aqua
- Billie, Dark Blue
- Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear, Blue Me Away!
- Muse, Gold
- Top or clear coat

First, paint all your nails gold.

Then, do the lightest blue 2/3 of the way up the nail.

I did an extra wave on the thumbs just for fun. It wasn't easy with a regular sized brush, but that's what I used, so those of you who don't own striper polishes, it can be done without, it's just harder and takes some skill.

Repeat with medium blue.

And then the darkest blue.

Add a top coat, and you're done!
