Thank you for visiting!  This is my very first post--so exciting!  After spending excessive amounts of time over months and months browsing lots and lots of fantastic nail art blogs, I decided to finally start my own.  I am definitely a beginner so please bear with me as I hope to chronicle my adventures (and probably misadventures!) on exploring the great nail art out there!

Nailslide is one of my absolute favorite nail blogs!  She has a lot of great tape manis as well as numerous tutorials, such as this cloud mani design.  In celebration of the first shore trip of the season, I tried to make it look like ocean waves.

For the base, I used Essie's Turquoise & Caicos and another Essie, Mesmerized.  
I love these two colors together!

Oh no!  It looks like my co-blogger, Charlie, liked Turquoise & Caicos so much that he stole it for himself!

Here is the finished product!  I used China Glaze's "White on White."  Next time I will need to even the brush strokes on the "waves" and work on those gross cuticles
but I am very happy with the first attempt!

Thanks for reading! 


  1. This looks very pretty, but I'm always partial to blues. Haha ;-) I'm fairly new at nail art too. If you add the Followers gadget to your page, I'll follow you :)

  2. Thanks!! I'm glad you mentioned the followers gadget because I didn't even know that existed, haha. Thanks so much! :)
