#ManiMonday: Beach Manicure


I am in love with this manicure, and not just because it's a beach mani! I got the idea from Polish & Pearls, and could not wait to share this on ManiMonday! If you haven't seen Jen's blog, you need to-just make sure you have awhile....you'll find SO many beautiful manicures!




I was too lazy when I was doing these late Saturday night to do all 10 nails, but I kind of like the accent nail alone. Here's one more against the skirt I wore to church Sunday, which really went with the nautical look, (bonus: wedding set pic for Mandy and an unflattering photo of sausage fingers!)


I used: Revlon Minted, China Glaze Snowglobe, and a no-name coral from Ross (seen here.) The only problem with this manicure is my impatience.  I should have let the Mint dry more before applying the glitter- you can see the dimpling affect in the last photo, which wouldn't have been so noticeable if I had started my mani before 11:30pm!

Is this mani absolutely adorable or what?!?
