Pirate Nail Art Challenge - Oceans


Avast, Fireflies!

Today's challenge be taking ye to the depths of Davey Jones' Locker! If yer lucky enough to be a pirate, ye be spending fair time with that crafty lady sea.

I did a gradient to represent the different layers of the ocean, and I fell in love with this gorgeous teal from the now-defunct Kelara Lacquers, Seaside.

The ocean gets deeper with the gorgeous cobalt blue with soft flakies that is A Rhyming Dictionary Crooked Magician.

The waves sparkle with sunlight.. and glitter.. from Girly Bits Wet Bikini. 


Yeah, I know that Sea Creatures was yesterday, but aren't these glitter dolphins cute?

    1. Ellagee has a line of dolphin polishes. From the swatches I've seen, they look to fit the nail better.
